Help! Airtel Nigeria Is A Scam by phockallmods: 11:16am On May 23
Laslasticlala, seun, mukina2 and Dominique, nairaland is great as it offers us platform to express our displeasure and for world to see.

Airtel has been scamming us through data deductions. From twitter to instagram and facebook, everyone is complaining and no one is listening.

Airtel removes almost 3 times your data usage from your balance. If you check your settings, you will see the data amount you have used but it's almost twice the one that would be removed from your account.
Attached is receipt. I subbed and got 3.9Gb of data, imagine, I used only about 650MB, check the balance airtel is giving? Airtel says I've used over 1G
I've been using glo and mtn and the phone recored of data usage is ALWAYS the same with what they deduct and give me as balance. Pls kindly help us out!

Even d 659MB i consumed that my phone records, if it was glo, it would not be upto that. But removing over 1G when all I used was less than 700MB is terrible

My N200 has been stolen by UBA and Airtel.

I recharged my line using the USSD *919# followed all the prompts to "Your Transaction is being Processed".

Till today, no debit alert from UBA nor Credit alert from Airtel.

But my account balance showed the amount has been deducted.

Who thief am, UBA say na Airtel, Airtel say na UBA. When too of them meet, them say na network. Whose network, den no gree talk

It's a different ball game for me. At times, I track data usage with the data limit stuff (data usage settings) and its accurate.
Increased data consumption per time frame may be due to a better internet connectivity though.

Edit the start date in the data usage settings and also know there could be inaccuracies in calculation. There is also a upload data count (it. uses the data too) (up and down arrow)

The problem is from airtel end. Since yesterday have been finding it difficult to recharge via gtb 737 ussd. I've even been debited in one of the transaction but yet to reflect on my airtel line .

I have been using Airtel for 7 years and this never happened once. Can you tell me how you subscribed and got 3.9gb of data? Airtel doesn't have any 3.9gb plan; only 3.5gb and with that 3.5gb in mind, it means you were not cheated. You thought you had 3.9gb but it was 3.5gb. If you can pull up a screenshot proof of the message they sent you after activating the plan, you can definitely follow it up.

Get the hell off. I did 3G subbed. Got 3072MB plus 889MB as welcome bonus, it's a new sim. Stop supporting crap. Go to their facebook and twitter and see angry mob for yourself. Guess you work for airtel. Better tell them to sit up. I've used all my social media power and influence to let people know of tgis atrocity commited.
Please seun, Laslasticlala, let this be on front page so they could see it cos more people will testify and it would lead to it being resolved on time.

Why is there so much discrepancies? Mtn has good connectivity too and it's always accurate. This on is not accurate at all and I'm not the only one complaining
