As you know, Blackberry devices has the cheapest amount of data allocated based to its charge and compared to other devices. For example, you can imagine been given 3GB of data for just N1000. Since bbm has been made available for android and iPhone users, it would only make more sense if telecommunication companies would adjust their data charges and data allocated to suit the android and iPhone users also(it wouldn’t hurt so much to also do same for pc users :-D).
Airtel NG so far seem to be the first to have made the move in relation to BBM on android and iPhone. Just around yesterday, I got a text message from Airtel which reads thus:
Download the BBM app from www.bbm.com and subscribe to the UNLIMITED BlackBerry Messenger Bundle EXCLUSIVE TO AIRTEL! Dial *440*22# at ONLY N300 monthly now!
The message above is self explanatory but for the sake of those who still needs proper guildline, here’s it.
How Can I Get The Airtel Unlimited BBM Plan On Android Or iPhone?
- First, make sure you have a minimum of N300 in your SIM and make sure the sim card is in your android or iphone device.
- Dial *440*22# and send. N300 will be deducted from your account after which you can now continue using BBM app at no extra cost on your android or iphone devices.
Please note that the validity period is 30 days after which you can choose to re-subscribe again.

Questions And Answers:
Can I Use This Plan For Internet Browsing on my android or iPhone?
No buddy, its exclusively for BBM only. Other internet connections used on your sim or device outside bbm like browsing, google play store etc would incure additional charges which should be billed based on the normal network rate per KB.
Can I Use This Plan On Blackberry phone?
Yes I ‘think‘ it should be able to work with blackberry devices as long as you will only be using the messaging app. Use of browser or other app will incure additional charges.
I am patiently looking forward to hearing what comes out of other telecommunication companies like MTN, Glo, Etisalat etc in relation to BBM on Android and iPhone.
