Reply with 1 to subscribe to airtel 500MB for #25 night bundle plan.
On a successful subscription you will receive 500mb for #25.
Airtel smart Trybe night bundle plan is available within the hours of 12:00am and 5:00am. It supports data rollover which means that you get to use whatever unused data you have left before 5:00am the following night up to the time the subscription was done the night before. If you subscribe for Airtel night bundle plan by 1:00am today and fail to finish the 500mb before 5:00am you still have till 1:00am tomorrow to finish it. Once it is 1:00am it expires and can no longer be used again.
Every subscription to the airtel night bundle plan has a validity of 24hours but only becomes active within the hours of 12:00 to 5:00am. What this implies is,if you finish the allotted data bundle you cannot subscribe again till the exact time you subscribed the night before. For example, if you subscribe to the airtel night bundle plan by 3:00am today and finish the allotted 500mb on the same day you subscribed for it. You cannot subscribe again today and even tomorrow you cannot subscribe until it is 3:00am.
How To Get 1GB of Data For #50
You can only subscribe once for either MTN or Airtel night bundle plan and to get 1Gb you need to follow this procedure.
Since you can only subscribe once, what you need to do is to get another Sim of the same network or another Sim of a different network.
Another Sim Of The Same Network.
For MTN, get 2 MTN Sims and once you exhaust the 500mb on one Sim subscribe on the other Sim. Since each Sim has 500mb data allowance you get 1Gb data when you subscribe on two of the Sims. The same applies for Airtel.
Get two airtel Sims, when you exhaust the 500mb on one Sim, subscribe on the other Sim and get another 500MB making it 1GB data for #50 at #25 each.
Another Sim Of Different Networks
MTN gives you 500mb data bundle plan whilst airtel also gives 500mb data. Get MTN and Airtel Sims, when you exhaust the allotted 500MB on MTN subscribe to airtel and enjoy another 500mb. That way, you also get 1gb from two of the networks (MTN and airtel) for #50 at #25 each
Using the same procedure you can Get more data bundle by getting more Sims as the more Sims you get the more data you get.
The above procedure can also be extended to get 2Gb of data for #100, in this case 4 Sims will do the magic. It all boils down to how much data you need in a single night and how much of network signal you have.
If you don’t have Strong network signal on both networks(MTN and Airtel), you need to go with the network with the best network signal. If MTN has the best signal in your area then go for more MTN Sims to achieve the desired result. If on the other hand airtel has the strongest network signal in your area then go for Airtel Sims. It is now left for you to make the choice. If you have both networks at their best signal wise in your area you either go for the same networks or a combination of different networks. Whichever way the same result would be achieved.
