  5. Ah just qot a samsunq fone and ah seriously need a data plan (cheaper) wt any of de networks tu qo abt surfinq


    Glo bis sub is still working for ANdroid. All u have to do is subscribe first with a blackberry fone. Wait to receipt the message that your handheld has been registered with the wireless network.

    After that, do the following:
    1. Don’t switch off the fone. Open the back and remove ur sim card but before doing this,make sure that y see d 3G network on ur blackberry before removing the sim. Take note.

    2. Go to your android fone, settings and create a new apn “” put ur glo sim and enjoy the speed.

    To browse with ur system, install blackberry desktop manager, connect ur device. Grant access by entering ur password if its password. When connected, click on tools tab and navigate to internet settings, create a new access point. Give it a name u like and use “” as ur apn. Leave the rest blank. Connect the internet and feel the speed.

  7. please I had followed the steps of using etisalat bis on my android before I saw this latest from you saying it no longer works. my 1000 deducted and given the 3gig but I can’t use it. only the bb10 for 100 worked. what do you suggest? please reply asap.

    1. Airtel Bis still works (tho not reliable) To activate it, dial *440*16# it costs #1,500, after which you’ll have to subscribe to their 10MB plan dial *141*712*11# it costs #100

      Set up your modem with airtel apn:
