According to this tweet, and information on the Airtel Nigeria official website, you can now pre-order and iPhone 5s from Airtel and pay later – in 12 monthly installments – for as low as 10k per month. If the options on the pre-order form are anything to go by, this offer might also extend to other Apple devices like the iPad, older generation iPhones and Macs

So far, there’s no information about what terms and conditions apply. I got in touch with Airtel for more details but there has been no response so far. We will keep our ears to the ground for future updates.

*Update*: There’s more. You apparently also get free data “for life” – 500mb per month, on the condition that you recharge with at least N1000 monthly, which you can use in making calls and sending texts.
