We all remember the nice Airtel BB subscription plan. Many people who liked this tariff plan are still searching for Airtel BlackBerry plan that works on Android handsets. Is it available in 2018? How many benefits can you enjoy on your Android device these days?
Airtel BlackBerry plan
Nigerians who enjoyed Airtel data plan for BlackBerry devices cannot find the same option in 2018. The popular Airtel BB subscription is no longer available across Nigeria. It is still present in some other countries where Airtel network is working, but not here.
Millions of people today choose iOS and Android smartphones over BlackBerry gadgets, and this is the main reason why Airtel has stopped offering its Airtel BlackBerry plan to subscribers.
While Airtel subscription is still available to all phones (no matter what platform they are using), you cannot choose the specific Airtel BB subscription in 2018. Those of you who are already using the good old Airtel BIS plan (designed specifically for BlackBerry models) might try to use it on your Android device. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee it would still work.
Airtel plans that work on Android
Luckily, there are many interesting data plans offered by Airtel for all users (BlackBerry, Android, iOS). Let us see which packages are good for Android device and how they differ from the previous BIS BB option.

All these packages are available within SmartSPEEDOO mobile data plans offered by Airtel in 2018. The choices are really wide (weekly and monthly plans, social packages, and mega packs), but we have only selected the options offered specifically for Android platform.
We hope you can enjoy some great data plans on your Android phone, and these shouldn’t be necessarily BlackBerry packages because there are enough Android plans created by Airtel specifically for your phone.
