How to Activate The Airtel BlackBerry Subscription to Browse on Any Device

   Few days ago, MTN Nigeria stopped the BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) from working on other devices and it is now working only on Blackberry Phones. Although, some are still using it on their Android Phones & Tablets and on PC by making use of Virtual Private Network (VPN) Applications and  Softwares like DroidVPN for Android, PD Proxy for PC, Tunnel Guru for PC and so on. Watch out for our upcoming post on How to use the MTN Blackberry Internet Subscription (BIS) on Android devices via DroidVPN and How to use the MTN Blackberry Internet Subscription (BIS) on PC via PD Proxy.
   Due to the blocked MTN BIS which affected and is still affecting many people in Nigeria, I have decided to share the latest BlackBerry Internet Service trick for Airtel tonight. The Blackberry Internet Service on Airtel Nigeria is still rocking and its very fast, just get a registered Airtel SIM and follow the procedure explained below.


Note: The Airtel BIS subscription and activation process explained below costs #1600 and it gives you a total data of 2GB which you can use for 30 days (depending on usage).

Airtel BlackBerry Subscription / Activation Procedure

  1.  After getting a registered Airtel SIM and inserting it in ANY phone, recharge the total amount of #1600 and check your account balance with *123# to make sure the total balance on the SIM card is up to #1600.
  2. Now, Dial *440*16# and you will get a message that your Airtel unlimited Blackberry service is live. This message confirms that you've been successfully subscribed to the Airtel BlackBerry Service which costs #1500 for 1 month with 2GB data cap.
  3. Now If you check your account balance, you will see that #1500 has been deducted and you have #100 left. The #100 remaining is as important as the #1500 that was deducted because without this #100, you can't browse yet with the 2GB BIS data you just subscribed to.
  4. To make the BIS subscription work, now dial *141*11*1#. This USSD code will subscribe you to the Airtel Daily Data Bundle which costs #100 thereby the remaining #100 in your account balance will be deducted and you will get a You've successfully added the 10MB data bundle message immediately.
  5. Now, check your total data bundle by dialing *123*10# or *141*712*0# and your total number of data will be displayed.
   If you have followed the procedures listed above accordingly then you will see the total number of data you have by using the USSD code in No. 5 above and you will be able to surf the internet, stream YouTube videos, download Apps with your Airtel BIS subscription on ANY device. Just insert the SIM card into your USB Modem, Android Phone, Nokia Phone or ANY other Device and Start surfing the Internet using the normal Airtel settings.

   I'm presently using the Airtel BlackBerry Internet Subscription, you can also enjoy it while it lasts. Do you have any problem while activating this BIS on your Airtel SIM ? Then drop your questions, suggestions and contributions here by making use of the comment box provided below and kindly share this informative post with your friends and family so that they can also enjoy it while it lasts.

    1. I don't think you've configured it properly, Mr Robert. Try to re-configure it again by setting a new browsing profile. Let me know if that works and if it doesn't, what error exactly do you get ?

    1. The ability to receive calls on PC via USB Modem with SIM depends on the Modem itself. There are some Modems designed to receive calls on PC while most of them are not. Which type of Modem do you use ?

  9. Please help. I have a problem I subscribe on my phantom A+ using the code *440*16# they deducted the N1500 and yet my phone is not browsing. Please help . I have been calling airtel to see if they can convert it to data plan since is not working but they never pick. What should I do please anyone help. My email is aggymordi@yahoo.com

    1. Okay Henrietta, Don't worry.. It will probably work since the #1500 was deducted but there are somethings you have to figure out first. Check if you've been given any data by dialing *123*10# or *141*712*0#. If yes, then recharge #100 on your phone and subscribe to the daily data plan which will be added to your current Data, the code for the daily plan is *141*11*1#. Your phone should be browsing by now. Let me know what happens. Cheers !!!

    1. Loading the 10MB in addition to the 2GB will make it work but it seems like you will have to reactivate the 2GB before it will work because you shouldn't have deactivated it in the first instance.

  16. OK then but Hw do I reactivate it. Do I need to call customer care or is dere a code pls

    1. Yes, call the Customer care for the reactivation but don't tell them you want to use it on a Non-BlackBerry Device to be on the safer side.
