Equitel buy Jipimie bundles (minutes, data and text messages)

In this post I am going to show you how to buy Equitel Jipimie bundles on your line or for another Equitel phone number.

The bundles combine voice, text and data.

All the daily, weekly and monthly Jipimie bundles can be used to browse the internet and call and text across all networks in Kenya.

The bundles are similar to Airtel Kenya UnlimiNet combo / Tubonge bundles, Telkom Kenya All in One Monthly bundles and Safaricom All In One bundles.

How are these bundles different from Equitel Ongea and Data Plus bundles?

Ongea bundles only have a voice and text component. You can only use them to make phone calls and send text messages. You get no data with them.

Data Plus bundles however focus solely on data. They don’t come with minutes or texts. Just bigger allocations of data. Learn more here.

The tips and step-by-step instructions I’m going to show you are applicable to all the Jipimie daily, weekly and monthly bundles listed below.
