In my recent article, I posted all the activation codes and pricing of Airtel Nigeria BlackBerry Internet Subscription.
Airtel is the best network to use for browsing as long as I’m concerned, apart from the fact that they have the widest 3g coverage, any Airtel sim with Blackberry Internet Subscription can be used on PC. Unlike other service providers that don’t work like that.
The reason why BlackBerry subscriptions are being used on non-Blackberry devices is because of its cost. Using Blackberry subscription on modems for instance is cheaper to using the normal plans which are quite expensive. 1 Gigabyte of data on Airtel can cost around N3,000, but you can get the 1gb of the same data for N1,200 by using BlackBerry Subscription. You don’t necessarily need a blackberry device to subscribe for any of the plans of your choice.
Recently, Airtel introduced some new plans known as Airtel UNLIMITED BB Plans. The Unlimited plans don’t work on PC unlike the former plans. After subscribing for any of the unlimited plans, if you try using the sim on your modem or any non-blackberry devices, it won’t connect, but if you return it back into your BlackBerry device, it will start working again.
Today, I want to unleash the trick to make Airtel Blackberry UNLIMITED work on pc and other mobile devices without any ado, you have to load 100 naira after subscribing then dial *141*712*11# you will be given 10MB of data and that will activate the Blackberry plan to work on your non blackberry devices such as your PC and mobile devices.
Does this keep working even after the 10 MB plan expires?
The airtel 1500 BB plan works but my pc but it’s annoyingly slow even when other airtel Sims are blazing 3g it won’t still go. what should I do pls.
I subscribe for bb unlimited since by yesteday, I can use other brouser but I cannot connect my Facebook and whatsapp. Advise pls
@ceci, may be network. Try again.
Please, i subscribed for android aircel bundle of 1gb and exhausted it b4 the time i did not deactivated it but went on to subscribe for blackberry 3gb complete plan. The bb plan has not been working, can You help me
@Justin, Airtel, BB plan re no longer reliable. I will advice you go for MTN shared data bundle (N1200 for 1gb). MTN gives value for money.
Pls when I sub to the unlimited stuff how can shear my BB with my laptop?
@ Temitope, you can make use of blackberry desktop manager. If your BB has hotspot, you can also share it through wireless.
Is dis airtel stuff stil working on modem?
@major, yes. Still working on PC.
pls is downloading also unlimited on bb unlimited subscri. If not pls what’s the range
@toyin, it has a data cap. The N1,500 unlimited plan came with 2gb. Use *123*10# to check your data balance.
Pls, is the 2g airtel bbm plan still working. If yes, wahat is the activation code?
@ Thompson, yes the plan is still working. To activate, simply dial *440*16#

@john, it is possible with Airtel. The connection would be fast as long as Airtel is good in your area.
Does the BB unlimited stillavailable if yes how do I go aboutit on my android fone
@Mr MI, the stuff still works. Load N1,500 airtel card and then subscribe with *440*16#
My case here is that I subscribe using *440*16# which enables my browsing but I later discovered that even the 130naira air time has also disappeared. B4 now i could not check my data bal. But checkin my credit bal shows that i i have my data plan working as my bal wad still intact.
the shocking thing was that i realise that I have 0 data balance now. From May data usage reveals I had used 1gig.
@Chris Okoye, use *123*9# to check your data balance.
1. Is the Airtel 2gig stuff still working?
2. How fast and reliable is Airtel in terms of downloading?
@Edubig, it still works. The speed depends on the network in your area.
pls, do i have to deactivate before new subscription when i exhusted my data before validity period?
@Mohd Sambo, yes you have to deactivate before subscribing for a new plan.
Please I used the code for bb unlimted on my phone(bbz10) but its not working. I was told I have sunscribe to data plan that is not meant for my phone. What should I do

@Felix, there is limit. It’s between 400-800mb

do i need to be activating each BBM data with 10MB each time i want to renew my subscription? or is the 10MB activation just for one time activation?
Benneth, *440*16# should come first before *141*712*11#.

@PVMS, yes it still works.
Hello Mr Segun, I want to know if the airtel bb subscription still works with computer and how it can be activated. Cos right now I’m still on my mtn subscription, though, I’ve once use it on my laptop not until these recent time that it wasn’t going again. So now, after reading your blog, I was thinking of swerving on to airtel, but I just will like to know if it’s still working before doing so. Thanks and awaiting your kind response to my email or on here. Regards
@Tayo, Airtel BB subscriptions still work on computer.
I have subscribed for air-tel bb 2GB using the code *440*16# and it cost me #1500. In trying to activate it using *141*712*11# (@ #100 air time) to gain access to unlimited surfing on my modem. i keep on receiving a massage “You can only switch between day, night and weekend plans after exhausting your bundle” PLEASE ASSIST!!!-
@Babale, call Airtel customer care and inform them about that. You might be using a tariff that cause the set-back.
I a m fortunate to get this site today. I find it an interesting site worth visiting. Please I want to know if the air tel unlimited black berry is still working on laptop. Thanks.
