With this launch, Pay as you Go customers can now connect with friends, family and colleagues through instant messaging applications like BlackBerry® Messenger and Yahoo!® Messenger and access up to 10 supported email accounts such as Gmail™ and Yahoo!®. Customers can also upload photos or update their status on social networking sites including Facebook® and MySpace or browse the internet from their BlackBerry® smartphones.
BlackBerry Internet Service is offered in the form of an Unlimited National Internet service for just AED 130 a month. The monthly fee for this service will be taken from the ‘more time’ balance*.
As a special introductory offer, BlackBerry Internet Service on Pay as you Go will be available with three months’ free unlimited national BlackBerry Internet service, worth AED390.
This offer is open to both new and existing Pay as you Go customers.
“The growing popularity of the BlackBerry solution in the UAE prompted us to launch BlackBerry service on our popular Pay as you Go plan. Pay as you Go customers choose this plan for its method of payment and we are committed to providing them with all of our services for their enjoyment,” said Farid Faraidooni, Chief Commercial Officer, du.
To take advantage of the du Pay As You Go BlackBerry service offer, customers must first purchase one of the available BlackBerry smartphones from du: the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8520, BlackBerry Curve® 8900™ or BlackBerry® Bold™ 9000 smartphones.
If customers already have a BlackBerry smartphone and are an existing Pay as you Go customer, they can activate BlackBerry Internet Service, by visiting any of the du shops or by going to web self care at www.du.ae
