Cancel Auto-Renewal on Airtel

Unlike other Nigerian mobile networks, Airtel asks you if you want to allow the auto-renewal function whenever you buy/subscribe to a new data plan, which I think is great because you can easily opt-out.

Let’s imagine you agreed to enable it and then changed your mind and decided to turn it off. Here are the steps to cancel Airtel auto-renewal.

How to Stop Airtel Auto-Renewal: Cancel Airtel Auto-Renewal via SMS

Disabling the Airtel auto-renewal option is a simple process that requires no effort.

Follow the steps below to cancel auto-renewal on Airtel through SMS.

  • Go to the “Messages” or “SMS” app on your phone (all mobile devices come with this app)
  • Text “STOP” to 141 without the quotations.
  • Once you’ve successfully completed the aforementioned step, you’ll receive a confirmation message/SMS indicating that you’ve opted out of the Airtel auto-renewal service
How to Stop Airtel Auto-Renewal via Twitter

Most Airtel customers are unaware of this way of canceling auto-renewal.

Airtel Nigeria currently has a dedicated Twitter account for responding to clients who are having issues with their service.

Follow the steps given below to opt-out of the Airtel auto-renewal service using this manner.

  • Open the Twitter mobile app or website and log in to your Twitter account (you can create an account if you don’t already have one). Locate the search page and type “airtel care” into the search box (without quotes)
  • You should notice an authentic Airtel customer service account with a verified badge (don’t deal with any account that doesn’t have a verified badge), open the handle, and look for the send message icon/button.

Send them a message describing your issue and include your phone number as well as the data plan you’d like them to cancel on your Airtel line.

  • Take a deep breath and wait for them to respond
