If you are yet to read the first and second parts of my debacle with Airtel’s 3 months free internet on the Nokia Lumia 610, you should. They give a background to this article. yesterday evening, internet service disappeared on my line – a Glo line. All through yesterday evening and all of today’s morning and afternoon, I was without mobile internet service. It was the more frustrating because I was on the road. After hours of frustration, I remembered that I had taken the Lumia 610 along with me. What did I have to lose by trying again in this nasty situation? I picked it up and sent “LUMIA” to 141.
Congratulations. Your Airtel Nokia FREE 1GB plan has been credited in your account. Enjoy browsing.
I guess I have this 1GB data allocation for the next 30 days and thereafter two more months of 1GB data. That would be nice. This is coming many months after the purchase of the Lumia 610. In another life, the phone would have been sold by me by now and I would never have gotten to enjoy this offer. But then, better late than never. Also, I hope that Airtel improves their 3G coverage at my location, or this trial offer would be mostly useless to me anyway. Still, this is good news, and I shall keep my fingers crossed.
Now, what are those downloads that I’ve been putting off for a while?
