Airtel Nigeria is a subsidiary of Airtel India, widely regarded as one of the most trusted, effective and efficient networks in Nigeria. Airtel has been able to pull users from other networks to its own using their cost effective data plan/bundles.
A survey was carried out in order to determine which of the networks pulls the most data users and we found out that majority of network data subscribers make use of Airtel network mainly for browsing and we found out that students and workers between the ages of 18 to 35 falls into this category, reason being that they pay less and get more value from Airtel’s data plan. Though Etisalat data plan came close but was not enough to outdo its rival. Thumbs up to Airtel Nigeria for achieving such feats.
In this post we will not leave any stone unturned we will be talking about Airtel data plans and subscription codes, how to deactivate and activate data on your Airtel lines, special blackberry subscription plans and subscription codes, Android data plans and subscription codes and how to stop auto renewal on your network.
Without boring you with too many talks, lets get down to business and I hope you have your phones or writing materials just incase you need to jot down useful points or try out the codes while reading the post.
Airtel Nigeria keeps coming up with mind-blowing services that beats the imagination of the average Nigerian, thanks to the stiff competition in the telecommunications industry. This has fostered fast internet connection at a very affordable price, when I mean affordable, even students in secondary schools can easily afford it. The bandwidth is expanded; the video and voice call services are very special and also provided at very affordable rates.

It would be nice to note that as an Airtel subscriber, you can also subscribe to any Airtel android plans on your mobile device, simply by dialling *141*1#, You will be present you with a list of data plans from which you could choose which suites you the most either for Blackberry, Android, or any bundle plans etc
Before doing any subscription, don’t forget that you ought to have pre-loaded your phone with the subscription amount since the recharge amount must be available on your phone before Airtel can activate you.
HOW TO CHECK THE BALANCE OF YOUR ANDROID DATA PLAN
Much has been talked about as regards Airtel Data plans and subscriptions codes, now we will be telling you about how to check your android data balance bundle. It can be really annoying knowing you just subscribed and within a week or two, you get a notification that your data is exhausted, with this code you will track your data balance and call Airtel’s customer care service if you feel have to
To check the balance of your android plan, simply dial *223# and wait for response from the network. It is as simple as that.
HOW TO STOP AUTO RENEWAL ON YOUR AIRTEL NETWORK
Auto renewal can be really annoying, the sad thing is that 90% of the people we carried out our survey on made it clear that they never opted into the auto renewal palava (problem) and it sucks when ringtones and other campaigns are auto renewing themselves on your phone when the credit on your phone is actually meant for something very important.
To stop AUTORENEWAL as an Airtel Subcriber, simply send an SMS by typing “stopautorenew” and send to 440
I hope this piece has been helpful even in the smallest way.
