MTN Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) now N1,500 a month #Blackberry #Nigeria

MTN Nigeria recently slashed its rate for its BIS package to as low as N1,500 per month or as low as N450 per week for Blackberry handsets in Nigeria.

Here are the special bundles as officially released by MTN Nigeria. Note that there are some usage caveats  as indicated below.

  • BlackBerry® Social Bundle: Keep everyone close and never lose touch with the BlackBerry® Social plan from MTN. For only N450 per week and N1, 500 per month, you can now stay on BBM, Yahoo messenger, Facebook®, Twitter® and other IM and social networking apps for less!

    Well, when you say BIS is N1500/month (the headline), it means its a complete package. On the table there, it shows the price still at 3000. What're you talking about?

    I mistakenly entered a wrong plan by typing a wrong code; BBM instead of BBC. How could I come out of this plan as I'm being restricted to social network and browsing only BB chat. Please let me know what to do. I have lodged a complaint but nothing has been done to change my plan.

      If its Glo lodge a complain with their customer care it sure will be rectified. I had issues after they charged me for subscription and they refunded me my money! but if its MTN well I'm sorry to inform you that you should simply wait till it expires and then subscribe to the correct plan!
