Why Are You Still Using BB? Glo Stops Blackberry Internet Services BIS

Am still asking... Why are you still using a Blackberry phone even when the creators of the devices are pretending as if they never made Blackberry phones. Everyone is against BB devices. They are now very outdated and old school.

Oh i remember the time when Glo BIS was the talk of the town, it was the best data plan then especially for Android users as data prices were on the high side but once you tweak your imei to a BB imei, you would be eligible to use Glo 3GB for 1000 Naira BIS plan on your Android phone. This really made people prefer phones with Mediatek processor because they are easy to tweak.

Fast forward it to this time; Etisalat started the trend of stopping the use of Blackberry Internet services on Blackberry OS7. Don't forget that if not the facts that WhatsApp extended their live support to Blackberry devices till June 2017, users of BB won't be able to use WhatsApp right now. Now Glo has announced their own sad news specifically prepared for BB users.

Dear Customer, starting December 17, 2016 BlackBerry services on your device (BBOS7 devices) will no longer be available. You can still continue to use the device to Call and Text. We request you to migrate to a BB10, Android, Windows or IOS handset to use your remaining data.

• BlackBerry Complete weekly plan
• BlackBerry Complete monthly plan
• BlackBerry Absolute weekly plan
• BlackBerry Absolute monthly plan
• BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS)
• BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES)

So what is the way forward? The best step you should make is to migrate to Android device or iPhone… no matter how you love your Bold 5, Curve or Storm, they are all outdated and no more in vogue.
#RIP BlackBerry #RIP Glo Blackberry Plan..
