Airtel BlackBerry Plan Still Working on Android Devices and PC

   Lately, Everyone using the Airtel BlackBerry Plan to browse on Android Devices, PCs and other Non-BB devices have been expecting Airtel to stop the plan from working on ALL devices except BlackBerry Phones on the 3rd of December, 2013. Some Airtel users claimed to receive a message from Airtel stating that, here is how the message looks like - “Dear Customer, effective 3rd Dec 2013 AIRTEL BB Plans will cease to function on non BB devices or used as a modem . Thank you”. Did you also received any message like this ? Well, I didn't receive any message like that despite the fact that I've been using the plan for a while and still using it on my Phone and PC.

   At the moment of publishing this post [December 04, 2013 - 01:22am] , I'm still using the Airtel BB Plan on my Android Phone and PC. Although, some people on Nairaland and some other Online Naija Forum said it is no longer working on their Android phones and PC while some also said it is still working on theirs. But to be sincere, these are the things I noticed which may be a sign that the Airtel BB Plan should still work or should not work on your Non-BB devices ->

1. I noticed that those that didn't receive the message quoted above are likely to still be able to use their Airtel BlackBerry Subscription on other devices. I didn't receive the message and I'm still using it, some other friends who didn't receive the message also claims to be using it after the December 03, 2013 it was allegedly said to be stopped.

2. I noticed that the Airtel BB Plan was very slow that it couldn't even open the lightest webpage since few days ago especially last night which makes it so difficult to use on PC, maybe this is a sign that something is going on with the BB plan from Airtel's side. I was fortunate to correct this issue by recharging #100 on my Airtel SIM and I subscribed to the Airtel Daily plan of 10MB by dialing *141*11*1#. After subscribing, the one-day 10MB was added to my remaining BlackBerry Data and It started working again.

3. According to some posts on some Nigerian Forums, some Airtel Users claim to just subscribe to the Airtel BB Plan yesterday [December 03, 2013] and it was successful, but if its really true that Airtel is ceasing the plan from working on Non-BB device. I think the new subscribers shouldn't be able to activate it using Non-BB devices not to talk of even working on them or what do you think ?


Conclusion

If you have problem using your Airtel BB Plan, check if your Data Balance is accessible by dialing *141*712*0# or *123*10#. If you can see that you have an active data on the Airtel BB, you can just try doing what I did in the 2nd part of the list above maybe it will also work for you. If you are just trying to subscribe to the Airtel BB Plan and want to use it on Non-BB devices, Follow this tutorial -> How to Activate the Airtel BlackBerry Plan to work on any device . If your Airtel BB Plan is still active and you're still using it on Non-BB devices then keep enjoying it. Sooner or Later, If Airtel finally blocks their BlackBerry Plan from working on other devices; I know we'll sure find another way out. Do you have any other suggestion or Contribution about the Airtel BB Plan issue ? Is it still working on your Android Device and PC or not ? Lets hear from you. Cheers !!!

    1. According to what I explained in the post, you are to dial *141*11*1# after subscribing to the #1500 BB Plan, not *440*18# that you dialed... So, recharge another #100 and dial *141*11*1# then it should start working. Let me know how it goes

  8. I check my data balance with *123*175#. The sim was given to me by an uncle, which is browsing real good on my BB. I want to know what type of BB subscription he made, and if I will be able to browse with it on my PC while I recharge #100 and dial *141*11*1#. Thanks for your anticipated reply.

    1. Hi Benjamin, you can ask your uncle which type of BB Subscription he did. And better still, you can just give it a try with the #100 and even if it refuses to work on your PC. You'd still be able to use it on your BB.
