Airtel Online Store has been offering various smartphones with down payment and EMI payment option for postpaid users. However, prepaid users have been left out for a while now.

To make it hassle-free, Airtel is now offering smartphones with down payment and EMI option to its prepaid users as well. Although, only three smartphones (Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 6.1 and Oppo F9 Pro) is currently available for prepaid users, alongside for postpaid users. Airtel is even offering 1.4GB data per day, unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS per day for users who purchase the device.

And for the next 12 months, users will have to make a payment of Rs 1,734, which also includes data, voice calling and SMS benefits for a year. Airtel states that the monthly amount should be paid directly to the lender.

When there are so many options of buying smartphones in emi without interest both online and offline, why would anyone pay so much extra?
Airtel should stop exploiting the unaware and start providing some real deals.

In My Airtel app, is there any trick by which i can use my airtel balance to buy the pack??

Actually, i have ?250+ balance left, and want to buy the 499 pack, but via *567# option, this pack is not showing up.


Same issue with me some days ago. Social media helpline of Airtel will not work for this for sure. Just simply e-mail on and request them to activate from your main balance. They’ll activate it within 24h but don’t forget to tell them to activate it for one time only. Keep sufficient balance for activation of the plan.
