What you need:
- an Etisalat SIM
- N1,100 airtime
- any unlocked smartphone, modem or MiFi
What to do:
- turn off mobile data on your device
- load the N1,100 airtime on the Etisalat SIM
- dial *499*3# and wait for a confirmation SMS. N1,000 is deducted
- dial *599*3*2#. N100 is deducted and this lets you use the data plan on any device. If you do not do this, the plan is restricted to BlackBerry devices only
- in your device settings, create an APN “blackberryx.net” and save it as “Etisalat” (any name is okay actually, so feel free to be creative)
You can check your data balance by dialling *228#, and you can renew this any time you exhaust the allocated data.
