UPDATE: Airtel Nigeria introduces 3GB for N1000 smartphone plan

By

Airtel Nigeria has just introduced a new affordable smartphone data plan. The new smartphone plan offers 3GB data for N1000.

The new smartphone plan works on every smartphone (not just Blackberry devices) and is open to every Airtel customer.

To subscribe for this plan, all you have to do is dial *431# on your smartphone.  To check you data balance, dial *140#.

UPDATE: it seems that this new plan is basically the same old 1500 for 3GB Airtel Blackberry plan with a price slash going by the sms received by Twitter user Ogbanje_ after subscribing to the plan, Although it's yet to be known if the data usage is billed the same as the old plan. I'd update this post once it's been confirmed
