Etisalat has now been changed to 9mobile but this 4GB data plan and activation code should work on your 9mobile line without any issues.
Let me not assume we all know what mobile data is, but we all should know. For the sake of those that don’t know what mobile data is, I’ll start by giving a brief explanation of what mobile data is.
What is mobile data?
Mobile Data is used to access the internet and perform the various function from just browsing, chatting to downloading your favorite movies and music online. Just like you need airtime to make calls, you need data to perform different activities over the internet.
Data is a way of life for some of us, without any active data subscription on our phone, we feel sick and the phone becomes useless. I personally make sure I don’t run out of data but not everyone can afford to be buying data always. Particularly when you put the price of data into consideration.
In this part of the world, data is actually expensive. You wouldn’t complain much if it was lasting more than it currently is. But unfortunately, the data finishes faster than you can think of. In this case, free data becomes very important. Whatever will reduce the cost of buying data will be welcomed by a lot of individuals.
Etisalat Free Data
Etisalat will be our focus in this article. We all know that Etisalat promises to bring innovative and convenient solutions to their customers. Well, to an extent they are keeping to their own end of the bargain. Does Etisalat offer free data? The answer is yes. However, there may be some conditions the customers may need to meet, e.g. buying airtime or downloading an app. So, to enjoy the data you will have to meet any condition attached to it.
Okay, enough of the long story, let’s jump right into what this article is all about. Etisalat Free Data, yes you guessed right.
Below I’ll list various ways you can get free data on Etisalat
Etisalat Free 15 MB
This is the first Etisalat free data we will be talking about. This is commonly known as EasyCliq free browsing. With this data, you get to browse the internet free, but it’s limited to 15 MB. Well it’s free so it doesn’t matter how small.
How to Enjoy this free data?
To enjoy this Etisalat free data, you must be on the EasyCliq tariff plan. So, before we continue, you should check what tariff you are currently on if you don’t know it. To do that, simply dial *244*3# from your Etisalat line, your current tariff will be displayed for you to see. If you are currently on EasyCliq, you can skip the next paragraph. However, if you are not on EasyCliq, read the next paragraph to know how to migrate to EasyCliq tariff plan.
To migrate to Etisalat EasyCliq from whichever plan you are currently on, simply dial *244*1# from your Etisalat line. There are other benefits that come with the EasyCliq tariff plan that you will surely enjoy. You can read that up in the post that focuses on that.
At this point, it’s safe to assume everyone is now on EasyCliq. So, to enjoy this 15 MB free data, simple recharge a minimum of 200 Naira airtime in a week. This can be done either once or cumulatively, which means you can either recharge 200 Naira once or recharge 100 Naira twice but must fall within the same week. If you recharge 200 Naira once, you receive instant 15MB free data. However, if you first recharge 100 Naira, you will receive 5MB, when you recharge another 100 Naira within the same week, you will get an additional 10MB. How easy is that?
Duration of the 15MB Free Data
The Etisalat 15MB has a validity period of 7 days. Not like you expect 15 MB to last that long, but that is the validity period. So, you get to use it over 7 days before it expires. To stop enjoying it, simply migrate to a different plan from EasyCliq.
To check the amount of free internet browsing remaining, dial *228#.
200MB Etisalat Free data
Okay, this is significantly much more than the previously discussed free data of 15 MB. Just like the previous free data, it also has conditions to be met before you can enjoy it.
How to Enjoy 200MB Etisalat Free Data?
To Enjoy the 200MB Etisalat free data, all you have to do is download the Etisalat mobile app from Google Play Store or Apple Store. Yes, that’s all you have to do to enjoy this free data. Okay, when I say download, I mean you have to download and install it. After installing it, you are expected to register it using your mobile number.
Once your registration is complete you will receive your free 200 MB. However, if you complete this process over the weekend, your free 200 MB will be sent to you on Monday. Etisalat has also said if you complete the entire process but didn’t get the free data, you should call their customer service agents and it will be resolved.
Who is Eligible?
Everyone that has an active Etisalat sim is eligible for this great offer. So, you don’t have to migrate out of your current Etisalat tariff. Even more is that it has no validity period, so you can use it for as long as you can and it wouldn’t expire.
Etisalat Free 4GB Data
This will appeal to a lot of people because of the amount of data involved. Well, I don’t know if by the time you see this post if it will still be available. Unlike the other Etisalat free data discussed already, this one has no conditions attached to it.
How to get the Etisalat free 4GB data?
Simply dial *8186*1# on your Etisalat sim card. If you get a response that says, “Your request is being processed…”, then you should be expecting the 4GB free Etisalat data. However, if you get a response that says, “Sorry, the operation failed…”, you have to keep trying or try from another Etisalat sim. like I said earlier it has no condition to be met, hence not everyone gets to enjoy it.
This free Etisalat data is valid for 30 days. So, if you receive it, you have 30 days to use it up.
