Starting October 1, 2009 Airtel is offering free 100mb of data each month for 3 months. This offer is valid till December 31, 2009.
However, it has to be noted that this offer is only available for select handsets of Nokia and Samsung. The handsets that are eligible are:
Nokia 5800 Xpress music
Nokia E71 and
Samsung Star (3G and wifi)
Samsung Omnia HD and
To avail this offer, one has to send an SMS as My Data to 543210 (toll free)
Upon sending the SMS, you’ll receive a confirmation message that the request was accepted and you’ll further receive settings which has to saved as default settings.
Apparently, the APN is the same as that of Airtel Mobile Office. So if you already have the MO settings, you may not receive the settings this time. In such cases, wait for 24 hours for the service to be activated and test a little before going full out using the Mobile Office APN.
You can check the usage any time as usual by typing *123# and sending it to 121.
After completion of 100mb in any month normal, Mobile Officer rates of 30ps/50kb will be applicable until the next month in the offer period comes.
Unlike other handset offers which are applicable only for new purchases, this free data offer is applicable for even existing customers of Airtel who have the above handsets.
