      1. Jonathan says

        man, I do not think bbm will work on phantom A and A+ because they are tablets. and bbm does not work on tablets

        1. Adeniyi Samuel says

          Well yes but there’s a way you could still install bbm on those android tablet running android 4.0 OS.

  2. jonathan says

    so how is that possible? because blackberry itself said it won’t work on tabs. also is there any hope for those who use less than 4.0.4?

    i use tecno p5 phone,but is 3G not 3GB, i what to know if it will still browse unlimited,with BBM , if i use bis or bbc plan

    1. Adeniyi Samuel says

      MTN BIS no longer work on android buddy, I’d advice using airtel bis on android.

    2. Jonathan says

      You do not need BIS plan to use BBM on your android. You use normal mb even if it is free mb.
      However, Airtel bis works on Android through cheat
