I’ve been using my BlackBerry Curve 8320 from the 1st of January, 2010. 10 months later it is looking like a very obsolete device even though it is still awesome. That’s because RIM has since launched so many newer models that work & look so much better and offers a lot more as well. It still is a very nifty handset and I do have a lot of affection for it. Or Cindy as I refer to her!
When I bought the handset on 1st of Jan 2010, I immediately called up my service provider and activated the full BlackBerry internet service – given to me with a discount! Instead of their then charges of Rs.1099 a month, I got the same option for Rs.899 a month, unlimited browsing. I activated it and used it for a month after which I opted for the Rs.299 plan, with which I got the options for only 10 email accounts access and chat services like Gtalk & MSN. I was fine using that but if I was on the move and couldn’t get access to a connected laptop or desktop, I couldn’t get access to the internet.
Well now Vodafone has come out with a further discount on their BlackBerry Internet services. Unlimited browsing for just Rs.599 a month! That’s not bad at all. I waited a few days for the month to get over and then got it activated with effect from today. I’m able to use all the various options including the Twitter for BlackBerry services and such. That’s good and I’d also love to use Wikipedia and Google at a moment’s notice while outside of my apartment.
