Title: Subscribe for airtel 2 months and get 1 month free (3gig)
Post by: [Not Shown, Login to View] on Oct 22, 2012
I think this tutorial is going to help the house because communication they say is the life wire of any business.
Airtel NG seems to have the Cheapest BIS Plan in Nigeria as at today.

This is really a Money Saver Offer from Airtel NG, and the funniest part of this is that you can also use this on your modem and browse till mama calls. When you activate airtel bis for two month which in turn you get 2gig, airtel will give you additional 1gig to use for the next month which is equivalent for three months internet subscription.

HOW CAN I GET THE ONE MONTH FREE WHEN I SUBSCRIBE FOR 2 MONTHS
1. Load upto N2,800 on your Phone.

2. Send BCM3 to 440

You will get a Notification immediately confirming you've been Subscribed plus a Free one Month (Worth N1,400).

Enjoy!!!!

To use it on your modem, just follow the setup procedures on this thread http://ng2g.com//index.php/topic,368.0.html

I also discovered that some individuals subscription finishes on time most expecially when they use it on their system, the reason may not be far fetch from the following...

(1) Windows update:  If your windows update is set to Automatic update it will download updates without your notice and inturn consume your  data plan; so i will suggest your set your system to never check for updates or better still Check for update but let me choose whether to download. To do this, just go to start button - control panel - system security - windows update.

(2) Antivirus: It is good for your antivirus to update all the time in order to keep your system away from lattest treat but at thesame time it should not be every day. Mine can just decide to be downlading updates almost every day that is worth more than 400mb, this alone can make my data plan of 3gig finish within one week. So the best thing to do is to set it to manual updates depending on the kind of antivirus u are using... like my ESET antivirus, i set it to notify me if their is an updates more than 2kb.. so i choose when to update and when not to updates. Please don't misunderstand me.. make sure it never outdated.

To our success...

You are so wonderful yomi dear, always bringing something new to the table.
I can find the person that was supposed to unlock my modem for me.
Should i continue looking for someother person to unlock my etisalat modem since i can still use other sim on it or should i buy a universal modem?

My etisalat modem is Huawei mobile broadband
model E173u-1
IMEI- 867455000343952
S/N- XVA7NA1140110000
Thank u so much dear.

Their is no need to buy a new modem as this one can be unlock  right away... This is your unlock code "45143815". Remove the etisalat sim inside your modem and replace it with any other sim like airtel or mtn... Once you insert the modem inside your system, an alert box will pop out asking for you to enter the unlock code, just enter the unlock code above and then wait for something for it to be unlock, after you are good to go. Try it and let us know if this work out.

Dear yomi, i have unlocked it with the code you gave me but i am still not able to browse with another network. i inserted MTN sim and used it to unlock it but after that, i discovered that it was telling me that the it disconnected and said that i should redial which i kept doing and yet it refused connecting and i had enough credit in my phone to browse with.
what do you think could be the problem please?
one more thing dear, do i need to get the configuration for Airtel b4 i can use it?
also, do i have to use a blackberry phone to recharge the sim?
thanks as usual as i anticipate your prompt response :)

You know by default, this is an etisalat modem that has just been transformed to universal modem; what actually happens is that you need to configure mtn settings on that modem in order for it to have mtn network. Just follow this steps in setting it up

1. Open your modem settings on your system
2. Go to settings - Profile - New
3. choose static for the APN, and put diz in the APN field web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net
4. Click on Authentication and enter this:  Access number: *99#, Username:web, Password:web
5. save changes and check as default.
Try connecting it now maybe it will connect.. ( incase your modem does not have Settings, you can just go straight to tools - Profile management - New, then enter the settings above.

If it is Airtel line you want to use on that modem, follow the settings on this thread http://ng2g.com//index.php/topic,368.0.html

Yes. Just follow that thread on airtel above in setting it up.

also, do i have to use a blackberry phone to recharge the sim?

No.. Any phone can just do just that, even Nokia 3310.. Lol

@chimummy when you exhaust your present bundle before the expiration time just "DEACTIVATE" without the quotation marks to 440, then you can make a new subscription without waiting for the expiry date of the previous, hope that works.

welcome back Yomi dear, i sent you this same question that i am about to ask you again so that wherever you see it first, you can easily get back to me.
is this plan unlimited in the sense that you can download anything? or by GigaByte? and if by gigabyte, how can i be checking my balance?
thanks a million.

One Love!
Title: Re: Subscribe for airtel 2 months and get 1 month free (3gig)
Post by: [Not Shown, Login to View] on Nov 07, 2012
It is not unlimited ooo... but you can check your balance by dialing *141*712*0# but make sure all the programmes installed on your system are not on automatic update most expecially your anti virus and window update; if not they will consume your gb before the end of one month. One Love dear

hahahaha, they are lucky Yomi dear or i would have finished them with 24 hours downloading ;D.
i asked because i thought it was the mtn 'browse with your blackberry plan on your system' that they said is unlimited.
well thank you dear for all your efforts.

Hi is this still working or do we subscribe to the normal 1g for N1400? I have finished my 3g, sent deactivate to 440 but re-subscription (bcm3 to 440) is not going through. any help?
Title: Re: Subscribe for airtel 2 months and get 1 month free (3gig)
Post by: [Not Shown, Login to View] on Jan 14, 2013
hello Problogger, i sincerely hope they have not stopped it for any reason. i am still using mine to expire on 5th of Feb. next month.
 But have you tried getting across to their help lines to ask if it is still working and if it is, that they should activate it for you.

I say so because i have tried recharging for a data plan and wasn't successful until i got hold of a customer care on phone who did it automatically for me one hand.
Well, that was with Etisalat but it should work with Airtel as well, after all, you are only going to tell them that it is for your blackberry plan and not for your modem lol.

So do that and get back to us in the house so that we can know the next step to take.
Best of luck!

@problogger, its still working. Just like what chimmumy said, you can try their help lines and table your complain. They are very easy to get than mtn customer care services.

@chimummy and yomiprof, thanks a million.
According to sms alert, i was told during reactivation that i cannot reactivate bcm3 to 440 while an active subscription is still on. So what i did was to deactivate and subscribe for 1 month 1g (bsm to 440 for 1200) and u know what.... it was successful and validity period of the new activation was added to that of d former that was yet to expire. therefore, instead of expiry date of feb, 2013, i now have april, 2015.
i also learnt that Glo bis now works on pc but i have not tried it.

*Data cap is 3G instead of 1G by airtel.
*Settings used:
 APN: blackberry.net
 Username and password should be left blank

Comonth to 777 for N1400 is what the individual used. Will subscribe once my airtel is exhausted. I just saw on gloword website (http://www.gloworld.com/bbcomplete.asp) that BIS data cap is now unlimited instead of 3g though, this is yet to be verified as i am yet to subscribe.
Do you know if this MTN BIS extension discussed here http://ng2g.com//index.php/topic,517.msg4241/topicseen.html#new still works?

Problogger plz keep me updated. If glo Bis is actually 1400 and 3g, even if its not unlimited so long it can browse on system, I think its better off than Airtel.. For now, I dnt knw if dat mtn still rock bt will confirm 4rm ma colleague.

ok i will. Alternatively u can get someone's Glo bis sim and try it out using d settings provided earlier. I am switching once airtel is used up as i usually exhaust the 1G in a week plus. Glo is a better option 4 me now.

My People, una go make me buy all the telecommunications sim card o!
Because of this browsing, i don buy  etisalat, airtel, mtn and now Glo wan join so.
I know that it is better to switch to the network that has the cheapest data option.
So Yomi and Problogger, has it been tested and confirmed that this Glo BIS can work on laptop?
Does it require a blackberry before you can do so? And did you mention that it is unlimited?
Please i will like to be sure that is working well like that of Airtel before i can invest in another sim card.
Meanwhile i have sim cards that are lying waste, anybody interested for free?

Chimummy, i think Problogger is going to be the Moses with the rod in our midst. He should answer that of Glo. You know what? i just renew my airtel line and to my surprise, Airtel gave me 4gb for just #1,200. Am damn surprise because i don't know how it happened.

I think it requires Blackberry for activation as i have not been able to activate it on my Nokia E61i. That was why i had to collect the sim card from a friend that uses BB and was able to browse with it on my laptop. Pls read previous post for settings too. I read on Glo website here (http://www.gloworld.com/bbcomplete.asp) that it is unlimited. As promised, once my airtel data gets exhausted, Glo is d way to go. Will keep this house posted

i am not surprised airtel gave you 4G and it is unconnected with Glo Bis data plan changes too. That is what happens in a competitive market as everyone wants to keep customers loyalty. As promised, I will keep the house posted once i switch network.

Probloger, i have never activated any of the airtel 3g.. i always work with the 1gb. And i don't usually carry over any of my data plan, i do finish them before the expiration period. Maybe am just lucky. I have 3.36gb left of my data plan.

@ Problogger, no kidding dear, i was going to opt for the glo that you talked about which is quite cool for 1200 for 3gb, and then it seemed like Airtel sensed that i wanted to keep them aside and they sent me the sms to my modem.
I love that of Glo, but from my observation, i can't finish that 3gb in a month xcept i'm downloading movies. thats why i'll still use the Airtel for now until my internet needs increases.
But thanks to you guys that always provide us with information, you rock!

@Chi.. You just said $300? If thats so then why should i send you 2gb... i changed my mind, i'll transfer 40gb to you right away only on the condition that you attest to finish it within 7days. Did you agree? Waiting..

ok chimummy you rock too for providing that info. About airtel, what i dont like about the 3g is dat once exhausted, i cannot reactivate another 3g until the 3g expiration period is over, though i can subscribe for the 1g data plan and d expiry date will be extended. When i tried to reactivate, an ss was sent that i can only subscribe to that offer once a quater.
Glo's 3g/month is a solid option for me as i am a heavy internet user and i observe d network is beta in my area compared to airtel

Here is the latest development with Airtel 2months + 1 month free blackberry 3g that we have been using to browse with our modem.
If you check the time i sent this, you will see that it 4:54 am(i have been up since 3am trying to activate my bcm3 for another 3 months, so you can thank me later for the additional info i will posting here :))

First of all, my call with one of their customer agents revealed that if you have used the bcm3 package before, you cannot repeat it again. what i mean here is that like some of us who have used bcm3 for 3 months cannot enjoy it again as it is just a-one-time-package.

The only option available for us now is the blackberry monthly plan of 1400 for 1gb if you are using airtel.

But if you have not used their blackberry plan before, you are welcome to enjoy the bcm3 for 2800 3gb, for 3 months. Noe this explains why Yomi got the 4gb when he bought his monthly 1gb from them. they gave it to him being that he hasn't enjoyed it before.

So if you ae still continuing with them, do send 'stop auto renewal' to 440 to deactivate the old plan. Do not send 'deactivate', it will not work and one of the customer care rep said i should use the one i just mentioned above.

So there you have it. oh how i miss my 3g for 3 months :'(.
But truthfully, Airtel is fast, at least it is faster than Etisalat. Do you know that i had to recahrge my etisalat line to browse with it when i couldn't use my Airtel, and that was when i realised how slow Etisalat 3g modem was compared to Airtel.
Up Airtel o jare. Next network am gonna try is that of Glo which is 3gb for 1200.

@Problogger, does that of Glo browse as fast as Airtel? that is if you have used Airtel before.

One Love!

@ chimummy:
1 - i have used airtel before and even this message is being sent on airtel 1g/1month package for just N1200 n not N1400 (bsm to 440).
2 - i agree with u that airtel is fast but note that all is dependent on coverage area. If 3G does not spread to your area, I bet u will complain about airtel as u do for etisalat which is even better  in my area that airtel
3 - The glo still rocks - 3G for 1 month for N1200 .... u cant beat that but try check GLO coverage in your area first with a 3g phone before subscribing.
Hope that helps.
later!

There is no doubt that Glo's 3g for 1200 is by far the best, but i have already subscribed to Airtel. And like you rightly pointed out, the speed of any network is mostly determinant on their proximity to a mast.

And oops :o, i didn't know about bsm for 1200 or i wouldn't have dashed them my extra 200 (1400 instead of 1200). But thanks for the eye opener.
If that of Glo still works after I'm done with this one, i will go for it and i will let you know too so that you can advise me properly.

@Chi, i just saw this post now and i decided to respond to it. I have enjoyed 20gb from airtel before that lasted me for 4month. And them giving me 4gib for 5month now, is not a surprise. All am trying to say is that, their is always a way out. But in Nigeria presently, Airtel has the best internet network with 3.7g. Glo and Mtn are far away from airtel.

@Probloger, Just like what you said, it depends on your location. If you need airtel 3.7g network in your location, just holla at me and i will  transfer mine to you. You guys should have a nice day ahead.

@Yunchenda, send "Deactivate" to 440 and then you can subscribe for a new one.

I agree with you completely that Airtel has the fastest internet connection.You will not know how fast they are until you use other networks.
But Yomi wait a minute, you mean say, na so you dey chop Airtel gigabyte dey go so?

tell me wetin you dey use for them, the odeshi wey you dey use make i too follow you enjoy na... shabi i be your paddy paddy :) that 'way out' wey you talk for your post needs more explanations o.

But anyway, thanks for exposing the fact that we can browse with Airtel bb package on our modems, it has really eased up my internet needs.
Here's to the Bare-headed Prof of the house, Yomi himself ;D
