Airtel Network have two different types of Blackberry services just like other network operators do. Airtel Blackberry services includes Blackberry Enterprise Solution and the Blackberry Internet Services both have different functions depending on what you want to use your blackberry for. Take for example someone that wants to use his/her blackberry to ping using BBM Instant Messaging and to browse the internet and keep up with friends on social networks will have to go for Airtel BIS.
The Airtel BES Enterprise Solution (BES) is targeted at companies, especially those with corporate email infrastructure while the Airtel Blackberry Social (BIS) is the one that offers you access to social media and instant messaging services like Facebook, Twitter and Blackberry Messenger also known as BBM.
Airtel BIS includes Airtel BIS Monthly Plan and Airtel BIS Weekly Plan for Airtel Blackberry users. The Airtel BIS Monthly Plan basically gives you access to BBM Instant Messaging and WAP Internet Browsing as far as I know and also 2 or 5 email accounts.
Here I will be explaining how to activate the Airtel BIS Monthly Plan and the Airtel BIS Weekly Plan.
Its quite easy to activate Airtel BIS Monthly Plan, all you need do is to recharge your Airtel SIM with
N1,400 naira and then dial *440*1#. (valid for 30 days – 1 month)
You will receive a text that your Blackberry Monthly Activation is successful. You can then start using your BBM Blackberry Instant Messaging Application, Web Browser and other Blackberry Applications that requires internet connection.
