Airtel offers Nigerians phone ownership scheme

Airtel Nigeria has partnered with Nokia to provide Nigerians the opportunity to exchange any of their current handsets for one of Nokia’s swank smartphones, the Lumia 520.
Chief Sales Offi cer of Airtel Nigeria, Inusa Bello, said the initiative was conceived to provide further value to Nigerians in line with Airtel’s commitment to becoming the most loved brand in the daily lives of Nigerians.
“The phone upgrade programme is yet another unique initiative by Airtel and Nokia to provide Nigerians a rare opportunity to own smartphone devices, complete with innovative applications to enhance their communication experience. Also, the additional value of free voice and data services is one more reason for consumers to port to Airtel,” he said.
In the same vein, the General Manager, Nokia West Africa, Chris Brown, said Nokia was ecstatic that the Lumia 520 had been chosen as the smartphone of choice for consumers to get their fi rst smartphone experience on.
He applauded Airtel for leading the way on a much requested upgrade opportunity which will offer consumers the best starter kit with the device discount and a fully loaded phone with free airtime and data for easy internet access.
Meanwhile the telecom operator has also stated the conditions for qualification to get the device by Nigerians.
According to Bello, “To qualify for the Airtel/Nokia phone upgrade programme, customers needed to visit any of Airtel shops with their old but functional device of any given brand and network, then pay an exchange fee of N23, 990, to own the Lumia 520.
“The offer also gives customers who embrace it up to N10, 000 worth of value for exchanging their old devices for the new Lumia 520 as they stand to enjoy 6 months free airtime for on net calls and data worth N6, 000.
