Sad: MTN Blackberry Service Will End By January 27th in Nigeria

MTN has announced that it will discontinue Blackberry services in Nigeria starting from the 27th of January 2017. This includes Blackberry Internet Services popularly known as BIS.

In a message sent to subscribers on Thursday, MTN said:
Dear customer, MTN BlackBerry service will be decommissioned on 27/01/2017. Please upgrade to a smartphone and enjoy 100% bonus on any data bundle purchased.

When contacted on this issue, MTN said: ” it means you won’t be able to subscribe to any blackberry service by that date. However, you can upgrade to a smartphone and purchase any of our data bundles.”

This notification follows Whatsapp’s announcement that it will discontinue services for Blackberries on December 31st, 2016, a deadline which was eventually extended to June 2017.

On a good side of the notification, MTN promises Double Data Bonus once you upgrade to a new smartphone.
