Gone are the days when we had to pay high rates for data on blackberry 10 phones. I recall when blackberry Z10 was newly released and was the talk of the town, data cost was around N3000 monthly.

As at then, bb10 phones pay higher subscriptions than lower blackberry phones. Thank God for now, it’s a different story. Although, i don’t think it’s same story for other networks other than glo. However, i stand to be corrected.

Cheapest Data Subscription For Blackberry 10 Phones

The cheapest data subscription for Blackberry 10 phones lately is glo bis. Glo bis gives you 3GB of data for N1000. So far so good, i haven’t come across a cheaper one. Although i intend trying mtn 1000 bis plan to see if it works on Q5, Q10, Z10 and when my facts are straight, i will update it via this same blog.

How To Subscribe To GLO BIS On BlackBerry 10

==> Using a blackberry phone, send ‘comonth‘ to 777 and 1000 will be deducted.

==> You should get a confirmation message welcoming you to glo bis monthly plan.

==> Validity period is one month. However, you can subscribe anytime if you exhaust your data before the one month validity period. You can even choose to subscribe twice at a go for 2000 which will give you 6GB of data.

The most interesting part is that, you can use this subscription on Laptop computer, android, ipad or any other device that has got wireless. You can read this post to get more information on that.

In subsequent posts, i will be posting more information and tutorials related to blackberry 10 phones and data usage in Nigeria.

Update: GLO BIS is no longer valid! Globacom Nigeria has discontinued it’s blackberry plan. Reason for this is that, not everyone utilizes this anymore.

In this current age, the Blackberry Operating system is close to complete extinction. Although there are still ways you can use apps like WhatsApp on the BB10 platform, WhatsApp has officially discontinued it’s support for Blackberry including the BB10 Os.

If at this point, you are still looking at this content, you should consider checking out the best glo data plans for 2018 instead. At this point, you should also consider upgrading your phone.

Android phones like infinix and tecno are not expensive to get. These are the list of infinix phones I’d recommend you check out. If your budget is less than $100 USD (N30,000), these are the best 45 USD (15,000) phones you can get in the market right now.

    • Nka, it works here. It could be network issues. Just be sure you are on 3G connection which if under a stable network, would make surfing and downloading much faster.

  13. Hi Samuel, Thanks for your wonderful Post. I want to subscribe on my Q5. Does it make a difference? Do I have to switch my sim to a lower blackberry first?
    Awaiting your reply..thanks..

  15. kpele,good job,i av read previous commemt bt i want to b personnally reassured does d comonth for BB z10 still wrk for glo,is it a cheat? does my sim need to b in any plan or any requiremnt to b eligible

    • Isoken, it isn’t exactly a cheat. However, you can call it a trick if you want. Yes, it still works and as a matter of fact, there’s exactly what am using in replying your comment.

  16. Pls sam I just got a BBZ10 and am having issues with my glo sim registered it twice but has not been activated fed up though. Is there any advice u can help me with. Secondly, would this Glo BIS(comonth to 777) work on it? Thank you. Reply asap pls

    • Angie, perhaps you should contact the customer care and have them assist you with the issue. Yes, the comonth plan should work perfectly.

  17. Nice.just bought a q10 but no android apps are connecting to the internet.could it be becoz I transfered the apps from an android device?and I had my glo sim cut to a microsim but my Q10 doesn’t recognize it Pls help

    • Rimamnde, the fact that some apps were traferred from an android phone to the bb10 phone doesn’t mean they won’t work. Please bear in mind that not all android apps actually work on bb10 phones. In regards the sim thing, please confirm that the sim slot isn’t faulty as well as the sim itself.

  18. Thanks sammy, but what I actually want to find out is if leaving it ON consumes data on its own just like what is encountered with android phones?

  19. Sammy thanks for your good work here. Please I just got a BB Q10, I want to try the Comonth subscription on it. Wanna know if I can leave my data ON always or always OFF it inorder to save my data?? Pls reply me ASAP.
    God bless you!
