Airtel Nigeria has announced a strategic partnership with Original Equipment Manufacturers, Infinix, TECNO and itel smartphones brand that will enable telecoms consumers to enjoy exclusive ‘double data’ offer for a six month period.

Under the new partnership, customers who purchase a new Infinix, TECNO or itel smartphone will enjoy twice the value of any data plan they purchase on their newly acquired smartphones.

For instance, if a customer buys the One-thousand-naira monthly data plan on any of the aforementioned newly acquired smartphones, he/she gets 3GB instead of 1.5GB of data.

To enjoy the offer, which is available to both new and existing Airtel customers, consumers are required to send the keyword, “GET” to SMS short code 141. Upon sending the SMS, a confirmation is sent to the customer for the ‘Double Data’ six months offer.

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
