Airtel Constant Airtime/Credit Deduction
It is no news now that Airtel Nigeria is currently one of the best networks. When it comes to providing both cheap and efficient calls and internet services to Nigerians they are considered top.
Airtel offers you calls for as low as 11kobo per second. They also offer double data, however, it is only for only some selected sim.
However, due to constant deductions from the network, I was recently forced to pull away from it.
After several calls, I put to their customer care agent and some minor investigations. I found out the root cause of the problem was a service called “Grooms” for “Men”.
If you have seen this message on your phone at any time, it is most likely you are subscribed to this service. You might be experiencing the same deductions I was once experiencing.
So, the simple fix is Simply texting, without the quotes “GROOM STOP” to 38043.
If this current service is not the root cause of your airtel credit deduction problem, dial *902#, select stop services, and see if you have any other service running you are not aware of.
PS After sending that text message above, make sure to receive a confirmation that you have been unsubscribed from the service, as I had to do this many times before I was successful.
