Glo BIS Subscription For BB10

Glo BIS Subscription For BB10: Stumbling on this post means you've also realized that the BIS plan for some networks like MTN and Airtel can't be used or does not work on BB10 devices.

One of the reasons why anyone especially Nigerians would get a Blackberry smartphone in the first place is because of its cheap data subscription plans as compared to data plans for devices like Android phones and PC.

On some networks, the monthly BIS data plan is unlimited which makes the offer more attractive.

But here's a shocker,

For all networks, BB10 has a different data plan which is quite expensive and at the same time very small as compared to BIS plan for blackberry devices.

The allotted Megabytes can be exhausted within a day for heavy bundle users and internet freaks or within a matter of one to two weeks.

This means that even if you can afford it, you will still have to use your internet data in moderation by switching off the connection occasionally.

If this is the case,

It'd be of no use having a BB10 device you can hardly browse with, or not seeing important messages as at when sent.


You would be better off using an Android device while waiting for the next Tunnel Guru server to be up and running so that you can browse for free.

Why BB10 Data Plan is Expensive?

You may be wondering,

Why is BB10 data plan so expensive?

Here are some reasons before you regret buying a BB10 phone due to the costly data plans rolled out by service providers.

While these are all Blackberry phones, the data plan for BB10 smartphones as stated earlier differ from that of regular BlackBerry phones like the curve 2 and Bold 5.

This is because Internet Service Providers hate you!.

You know I'm kidding, right? Maybe not😛

  • BB10 smartphones like the Z10, Q5, and Q10 use more data than other BlackBerry devices.

They can run Android apps and Games whose sizes are extremely large, hence will require more data before they can be downloaded.

On the other hand,

The most you do with regular BB phones is play Angry birds and chat on BBM😩.

  • These service providers feel BB10 users have more than enough cash to spend given that they can afford these new premium BB phones.
Trust me, it's Nigerian Mentality but I might be wrong or not.

While these should not be our major concern, how can you enjoy your new BB10 smartphone by downloading Android Apps, Games and Ebooks on it without having to subscribe to the mindblowing plans rolled out MTN, GLO, Etisalat, and Airtel?

I'll tell you in the later section of this post.
