    Not intersting

      As they say, ‘a cynic is one who knows the meaning of everything and the value of nothing’.

      Sadly, your comment just reflected that. If you’re not interested in the offer, you didn’t really have to mention it. But a more appropriate comment would have been something along the lines of ‘good offer on prepaid’, considering no other telco is giving blackberry services on prepaid.

      And no, I’m not a Ufone fanboy, nor do I own a Ufone connection, but your comment was just…typical, unfortunately.

    On GPRS? They should’ve waited till 3g arrives.

    • Faizan

      BIS is already compressed data,so its bearable. Plus BBM doesn’t require that much data at all. I used it for a month on 3G and all I used was around 1MB or so with constant chats.

  • Arsalan

    On Edge…. Blackberry services are far ahead iOS and Android. I currently have a Nexus and a Blackberry, so i can compare he two.

    Blackberry Service uses compressed data. It is not possible to use facebook or communicate with friends on nexus s, the way i do on my blackberry.

      We need BBM service available on pay as you go (With a good monthly price scheme for BBM service) as the end of story. How long this country will take to bring that ON. Its such bullsh8 to travel to pk knowing there wont be bbm working unless pay crazy amount to some supported network for the damn contract instead of simple solutions.
      People have money to get smart devices no problem but silly networks can make services available until they get stacks of money from contracts. let us be free finally gosh!!!
