Glo Stops Blackberry Internet Service (BIS)

The most used internet service in Nigeria called BIS (Blackberry Internet Service) has been stopped and ended by Glo network after etisalat has ended theirs some months ago. Glo BIS subscription plans was very cheap which can be used on Android phone by tweaking IMEI and it was very helpful to many Nigerians as well which made everyone migrate to MTK phones that can tweak.


Well, all blackberry from Blackberry OS7 and below which are; Bold, Curve, Torch, Storm, Tour, Porsche will not have access to Blackberry internet services, so for this BIS to work normally, you have to migrate to BB10, Android and IOS device.

This was what glo announced about the stopping of BIS;

Dear Customer, starting December 17, 2016 BlackBerry services on your device (BBOS7 devices) will no longer be available. You can still continue to use the device to Call and Text. We request you to migrate to a BB10, Android, Windows or IOS handset to use your remaining data.
So you won't be able to access any blackberry properties like BlackBerry world, BBM, Blackberry calendar and travel apps, Blackberry hub etc will not work on BB OS 7 and below devices but you will still be able to call and text using the BBOS devices.

These are the Glo BIS data plans that will be unavailable or affected;

  • BlackBerry Complete weekly plan
  • BlackBerry Complete monthly plan 
  • BlackBerry Absolute weekly plan
  • BlackBerry Absolute monthly plan 
  • BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) 
  • BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES)


So is hightime you buy a new smartphone of android, iOS or Windows to enjoy more of the internet services from all networks and after this, other networks will also disable their BIS too.

Is it helpful? What do you have to say about the stopping of Glo BIS? Do you think Glo did the right thing?
