Airtel is one of the leading network providers in Nigeria.
In addition to its preferable network coverage, the network provider offers a
variety of cheap data plans which give its subscribers every good reason to
disregard other networks.

In its attempt to emulate the offers provided by the trio of
MTN, Glo and Etisalat, Airtel has rolled out a 100% data bonus offer which
doubles your data recharge for 6 months. This offer has been around for a while
and a significant number of Airtel subscribers have confirmed it as genuine.
Although this offer is not available on certain Airtel SIM
cards, about 80% of Airtel subscribers are eligible to use it. To subscribe to
this offer or confirm your SIM’s eligibility, just continue reading this
How to Check if Your SIM is Eligible for Airtel 100% Data

As implied earlier, not all Airtel SIM cards are compatible
with this 100% data bonus (also known as double data bonus). However, the best
part of Airtel subscribers can enjoy it without any restriction. To find out
whether your Airtel SIM is eligible for this offer or not, follow the steps
Dial *144#
from your Airtel SIM
On the on-screen reply, you will be provided
with either of two options. The first option is Enjoy
Double Data Offer for 6 Months while the second option is Get 1.5GB for #1000, Dial *496#
If you receive the first option “Enjoy Double
Data Offer for 6 Months’’, this means you’re qualified for the offer and can
subscribe to any of the available data plans based on your preference
On the other hand, if you receive the second
option “Get 1.5GB for #1000, Dial *496#’’, this shows that your Airtel SIM is
not qualified for the double data bonus offer

In case you get the first option after dialling *144#, you
can choose your preferred plan and enjoy 100% data bonus. If for instance you
choose the first plan which is 1.5GB for #500 (for a validity period of 14
days), you will have the basic data of 750MB plus the bonus data of 750MB valid
for 14 days. In order to check your data balance, just dial *140# from your
Airtel SIM and wait for  a message
implying that you will receive an SMS with your data
balance details shortly.
