Breakdown Of Airtel Free Solo Aspire M Smartphone Bonus Package [All you Need To Know]

Airtel Nigeria has gone into what seem to look like a partnership with a Nigerian base mobile phone production company, Solo. With this partnership, Airtel has announced to give out freebies to their loyal customers with the product of the company they have partnered with, which is a Solo Mobile Phone.


According to a post on Airtel's facebook page, the network company is set to dash out Solo Aspire M Smartphone to any of their loyal customers who will use up to N4,150 each month for up to 12 months (1 year), the free smartphone will come along with bonuses ranging from free airtime, free data, free sms and free unlimited social media access.

This is what they post on Facebook:

"Just N4150 every month for 12 months, that’s all you need to enjoy the #CompletePackage of 1GB data, 60min calls, 60 SMS, unlimited social plus a free Solo Aspire M smartphone. Visit Airtel showroom and partner stores to get yours. #GoSolo"

Analysis Of This New Airtel Free Bonus Package

Disclaimer: This is only but my personal analysis, my personal view and my personal opinion. I will not be responsible for how you understand my below analysis. Thank you!

Here, after brainstorming the kind of offer Airtel is supposedly giving out to its customers, I have made a simple breakdown of how much you will actually get the Solo Apire M Smartphone at last.

Although this is a good move from Airtel, at least they've shown they are still existing as a network. If you calculate N4,150 x 12months it will give you N49,800.

How much is 1GB data from Airtel, they currently don't offer 1Gb data so lets assume it from their 1.5GB for N1000.

  • Let's say N650 for 1GB data
  • SMS cost about N4 per SMS x 60SMS will give you N240
  • How much is Airtel call rate per second? bring it flat to 11k/s x60sec (which is 1 minute) will give you N6.60k/minute... This figure times 60 minutes (which is 1 hour) you will get N396
  • Well I can't calculate the amount of data you use for social media but let's just stick to N1500

The total of all these bonuses will amount to N2,786 out of the actual N49,800 you will eventually spend for a year...Hehehe (I laugh)

But wait still, let us see the specifications and price of the so-called free mobile phone, Solo Aspire M Smartphone

Now, you have seen and gone through the specs of the phone airtel has put forward as free gift to their loyal customers, if I told you to buy this phone for N47,000 would you buy it?

Well, that will be the price of this smartphone despite the both company's partnership. Business is business I know that but this is way too far for Airtel.

So after all these analysis, will you buy this phone for N47,000?
