  • Does AirTel have a advance rental plan for blackberry ? In the AirTel postpaid Blackberry 499 plan is it 500 KB FREE or 500 MB FREE and does this include mail / messaging and browsing

    I hope BB rates are slashed further since now MOBILE OFFICE plans @ Rs. 98/- gives 2 GB whereas its still costly to own and run a blackberry

    • Suresh

      Aircel has Ultimate Advance plan for Unlimited Browsing,Downloading,mails,chat @ Rs 3333 for 1 yr…

  • shweta

    hi vignesh,

    yes airtel do have an advance rental plan.
    that would be,
    3999/- for 6 months
    6999/- for 12 months

    and i suggest you to please dont use rs499 plan…
    bcoz in that only 500kb would be free (including email,messenger,browsing n downloading ) and after that it will cost you 50p/kb..
    in that you will get bill upto 10 or 20,000-

    I’m a new Blackberry user
    I have Curve 8520
    I want to know that on Airtel, if I take the 299 plan, can I still use applications from BB store (downloaded via wifi)
    Because right now I’m unable to use those applications i guess because I haven’t subscribed to the data plans, I am uploading them via my wifi connection

    Hi, I have a Blackberry Pearl 8100 model phone. I want to take a prepaid data plan. And i dont have a browser in the phone. will the network provider install the browser when i take a data plan?

    please advise.


  • BB Hacker

    Hello freinds…I am Abhi ..I have BB Curve 8520 n purchased it last month in just 11.5k..
    I m using Tata Docomo 399 Data Plan which is cheapest of all Service Provider plans..If u have good Docomo coverage u can easily activate this plan by sending an SMS “BB 399” to 121 and In 15 min your plan will be activated. As ur plan activated ur handset automatically sugget you to download applications..and u can see some icons in ur menu like BB app world and yahoo messenger,G-talk etc.You can download many applications from BB application world..
    But if u want to use simple GPRS plan in BB,just download OperaMini on ur BB from this link
    Install this app and Now u have to do some setting.
    Click on  >Options>Advanced Options>TCP/IP> Now make the APN Setting Enabled,Enter your access point [APN for TaTa Docomo is TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET]
    Leave the other settings blank and save it.Now open Opera Mini and Enjoy .
