Just this afternoon, a friend of mine confirmed the text message that was sent to me in the morning and it goes like this “Yello Surprise! Activate Blackberry monthly or weekly service and get 20% discount instantly. Offer valid till July 17th”.

In other words, it means that you can now activate BBC one month plan for #800 instead of #1000. Very soon, we will get another text “that you can now activate BIS for #600” lol..! I was just wondering what telecommunication will become by the year 2014. Because I don’t really know what MTN Nigeria is up to; but I still stick to my dream when Blackberry internet subscription will be #200 for complete a month. Earlier this year, Mtnand Etisalatreduced their Blackberry subscription price to #1,000 and #1,500 respectively.

This is just a bonanza that will expire by July 17th 2013. So if your Blackberry subscription expires within this period, count yourself lucky to opt into this bonanza scheme.

I believe you still remember that you can browse with it on your system without any interference.

To Activate This Plan

  • Just load your Mtn line with #800
  • Send BBC to 21600 and you are good to go.

Enjoy the offer while before it expires.

  • Shelaf, July 14, 2013 @ 12:09 pm Reply

    @shola It is within fair usage policy but not advice-able for d people who are interested in heavy downloading. Bis of #1500 is still preferable since you can download upto 5GB.

  • Shelaf, July 14, 2013 @ 12:17 pm Reply

    @Steven Is no more unlimited, it has caped to 3GB just of recent & currently is not working with other devices except blackberry phones only.

  • Shelaf, July 14, 2013 @ 12:23 pm Reply

    Any way, just load Load Airtel Recharge card of #100 on a line you used to subscribe to a blackberry unlimited plan of #1,500
    2. Dial *141*712*11# to subscribe for Airtel 10mb daily plan
    3. Start browsing with it and your blackberry subscription of #1500 will start working after you exhaust the daily 10mb you subscribed to.

    Pls Oga, what is the difference between mtn bbc and bis in terms of quantity of Gigabytes???

  • Shelaf, June 7, 2014 @ 11:16 pm Reply

    Basic differences between Mtn BBC and BIS plan

    1. Mtn BBC plan is the one that formerly cost #1500 (now #1000), while BIS was #3000 (now #1500
    2. BBC Plan has a data cap of 350MB, while BIS plan has an unlimited data cap with fair data usage policy.
    3. BBC Plan allow you to have 1 register web based email, while Bis Plan allows you to Register 10 web based email accounts.
    4. BBC plan charge you normal call rate whenever you are making call with your subscribed line, while Bis Plan charge you 10kobo per second to any MTN line you call (that is what their CC told me if i could remember)
    5. BIS plan comes with blackberry protect application to back up your contact, messages etc on your device, while BBC does not have this features.

    Hope u understand d 2 plans better now?

    Hi selaf…. I love your posts they are really enlightening…. But here's something….. One of my neighbors was laughing at me cos I was just about to top up my phone so as to buy the normal data plan I do buy…..

    He boasted that there's this new code that would get 2gb for a price of #1000…on my mtn sim…… But it's not a BBC nor bis bundle…
    I've gone thoroughly through all possible outcomes of you search but nothing useful….

    I didn't want to bother myself persuading him for the code.. he is the kind if guy that would get me public assault in future if he helps me with the code….. Of course I would pay him something…

    Please can you please for the sake of myself and my fellow fans of yours…. Try getting that code for us to also utilize

  • chuks ifeanyi, October 9, 2014 @ 9:46 am Reply

    I would be very grateful if you do just that for us all to enjoy the 2gb data on mtn for just #1000
