MTN’s Blackberry Service allows you the opportunity to connect with all of your favourite contacts which can be added to your Blackberry cellular phone. It is the latest wireless communication tool that was developed initially for mobile professionals with high communication needs. However, this technology is not only being used by mobile professionals, but the mass public as Blackberry Service allows you to contact any other Blackberry user for free by means of Blackberry messaging and instant emails.
MTN’s Blackberry Service is included as part of the majority of their contract offerings and therefore connecting to the world is quick and simple. Blackberry Internet Service is the tool that you need in order to connect, and this allows you the opportunity to not only connect to Blackberry messaging, but also the internet and applications. Blackberries have revolutionised the world and have allowed people to connect on a whole new level. In South Africa alone, the increasing demand for Blackberry devises is evidence of the way in which people have hopped on the communication highway and feel the need to always be connected.
This has helped greatly in business as no longer are people tied to their desks because of their PC’s and no longer do they have to lug their laptops around with them. Instead, they can have multiple email accounts linked to their Blackberry devise which allows them the freedom to work from home, or from anywhere for that being.
MTN has a variety of packages for you to chose from when it comes to Blackberry devises. Firstly, you can chose a pay as you go package and it really is simple. All you have to do is take a look at the different Blackberry devises on offer and see which one suits you best. You can chose from the Blackberry Curve 8520, Bold 9000, and Bold 9700. From there, all you have to do is visit your nearest MTN store with your PayAsYouGo Sim card and purchase the phone. In order to join the revolution and start connecting, you will have to pay R59 a month for unlimited Internet and email with Blackberry Internet Service.
In order to set up your Blackberry Internet Service, you will have to dial*141*11#. This will allow you the opportunity to have access to unlimited internet which will allow you to connect even further by letting you access your social networking accounts as well as up to 10 email accounts. Should you wish to connect to your corporate email account, calendar, and contacts, you will have to pay R139 instead of the R59 per month. In order to set up your Blackberry, you will have to dial 1555 and select option 3 for help with setting up your Blackberry.
If you can afford a contract, then there a number of options available with MTN. You can choose between the cheapest option being that of a MTN Anytime 50 or the most expensive being that of a MTN off-peak 200. As with pay as you go, you will have to set up your devise in the same way. However, you will not have to pay a separate amount for Blackberry Internet and Email Services. Instead, this amount will form part of your contract which makes the whole process of staying connected that much easier.
If instant messaging and email accounts aren’t enough for you, then you will also be opening yourself up to a world of applications that you can download for your Blackberry. The most popular application is that of What’sApp which allows Blackberry users the opportunity to stay connected to other smartphone users that do not have a Blackberry, at no cost. All you have to pay for is the Internet usage but that is minimal.
