RIM & Globe offers unlimited BBM for Php99 a month

During the product launch of BlackBerry handsets last week, the regional executive from RIM also announced an unlimited BBM plans for only Php99 a month. The details weren’t clear then but it looks like the unli-plan is now being offered by Globe.

For Postpaid Subscribers: Register to BlackBerry Chat for only Php99 per 30 days and get 200 free SMS. Just Text BB CHAT ON to 8888.

For Prepaid Subscribers: Register to BlackBerry Chat for only Php15 per day and get 100 free SMS. Just Text BBCHAT15 to 8888.

Note that mobile browsing is NOT allowed while subscribed to BlackBerry Chat except if you are on WiFi. Promo runs from January 15, 2012 to March 31, 2012.

Interesting to note that the pricing plan for unlimited BBM is much cheaper when you are on postpaid compared to prepaid. IN any case, unlimited BBM for Php99 per month is the cheapest value-added service I’ve seen from RIM and this could drive huge adoption of new subscribers.

    Too bad they dont offer a one month bbm only promo for prepaid. unlike smart’s 150 bbm for one month. hassle kaya mag register everyday.

    • Hindi kaya one-time registration lang siya? But the setup is, you get charged P15/day unless you stop it (sending codes like to STOP to 2XXX for example)? Kasi di ba ganun yung ginagawa nila ngayon sa mga UnliSocial/UnliMessaging for BB?

    Isn’t that how its supposed to be? IMO its a step in the right direction. Postpaid subscribers should have cheaper promos to entice prepaid subscribers to go postpaid. The problem with our telcos is they don’t take care of their postpaid subscribers well. With their semi-permanent promos, it would be more economical to just get a prepaid sim if you don’t really need a new phone. Most unli promos were previously only available for prepaid subscribers and if they made it available for postpaid subs, its an add-on. It also took them this long to implement an anti-billshock feature. Hopefully this trend continues.

    Good job to Globe and RIM for bringing it down low for the convenience of many people. BBM is really a great service, because it’s unlimited and can already send/receive photos, files, voice notes, etc without extra cost.

    Anyway, if you guys have missed Globe’s *143# new functionality, you no longer have to remember keywords. Simply dial *143# then call it for free to see a menu. Check out more details at http://www.glennong.com/2012/01/globes-143-eliminates-need-to-remember.html

    This is great news for BB users. I’m going to unsubscribe BB social and subscribe to BBM unlimited instead! :)

    yung 100 free sms ba valid lang for 1 day? mura na sya ha.. i’ll try this one. bbm me> 2310736E

  14. Doesn’t work

  15. I registered about an hour ago and it’s working for me. The message I got says if you’re subscribed to other BB add-ons, you must deactivate them before you register to BB Chat.

    To unsubscribe the service, text BB CHAT OFF to 8888.

    So I guess that confirms that it’s really a one-time registration only. In the case of prepaid users, maybe it’s a one-time registration then they just get charged daily (since the rate is per day).
