About Airtel Family and Friends Package
The Airtel Family and Friends plan is a service available to Airtel prepaid users. It allows them to call four (4) special persons for less on the Airtel network.
Airtel Family and Friends plan allows you to call four (4) Airtel numbers for as low as 25 kobo per second (₦15 per minute) during the peak period (6 a.m. to 10 p.m.). However, it costs 21 kobo per second (₦12.6 per minute) during the off peak period (10 p.m. to 6 a.m.).
These four special persons must also be users on the Airtel network. The Airtel Family and Friends is only applicable to prepaid users on the Airtel Smart Connect Plan.
The good news is that the Airtel Smart Connect Plan is the default plan that comes with every newly purchased Airtel SIM card. It gives customers 800% bonus on any recharge made on the line.
Unfortunately, once you have opted out of that plan, there is no code to opt back in. This means that once you migrate to another tariff plan outside the default Airtel Smart Connect plan, you cannot migrate back to it. Consequently, you will be removed from using the Airtel Family and Friends plan.
