R27/month BlackBerry Internet Service launched

Cell C announced two new BlackBerry service plans today (22 June 2012): BlackBerry Social, and BlackBerry Social and Email.

These plans are designed to suit the different requirements of customers, Cell C said, whether it’s for instant messaging, social networking, browsing, e-mail, apps, or all of the above.

The BlackBerry Social Plan, available for R27/month, offers access to Facebook, Twitter and other social networks, including BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). It also includes one BlackBerry Email account ([email protected]), Internet access, and downloads from BlackBerry App World.

For R37/month subscribers can get the BlackBerry Social and Email Plan, which includes Internet access, e-mail, and social connectivity. In addition to the features of the BlackBerry Social Plan, it also includes access to one third party e-mail account (e.g. Yahoo, Hotmail or Gmail).

Cell C said that subscribers can also still make use of the existing BlackBerry Internet Service plan at R57/month which allows up to 10 supported corporate and personal e-mail accounts in addition to all of the above features.

The new BlackBerry service plans from Cell C are available to customers today, said Karin Fourie, Cell C’s executive head of communications.

Customers can opt into either service plan via USSD code *147# or via a customer service agent.

Pre-paid and Top Up customers can activate the new BlackBerry service plans on a once off/non-recurring service or a monthly recurring service, which will be valid for 30 days. Post-paid customers can only subscribe as a monthly recurring service. If a subscriber wishes to terminate the service prior to the 30 days expiration date, they will lose all the benefits with immediate effect.
