  3. Hi, how can i setup the internet browsing without using the WAP SMART?

  4. internet browsing setup is automatic when you received your service book. Depending on the bb you use, you’ll have an option to use either “internet browser” or “wap smart” as your default browser configuration

  5. @dongv: When you backup your BBM contacts from your old phone then load them to your new one, the PIN which is registered in your contacts BBM will automatically update to the new one.

  6. thanks, but what I mean is your personal pin on other’s phone. when you change phone, they can’t contact you at the new phone (with new pin), am I correct? you have to notify all of your contact that you change pin?

  8. i noticed that when i register for a day of unlimited blackberry plan, after loading up P60 just to try it, it would deduct the P50, but when i check my load balance, only P1 remains. The P10 seems to be deducted without my knowledge for the P10/30 mins browsing. How is it possible? I’m using my old blackberry 8800. Even after the registration to the plan has expired, and I do not renew my registration, whenever I load up, it would automatically eat up the credits. I just find it weird that I dont even use the Smart WAP and it deducts all those. Called up customer service about this but they just suck big time. Smart service is very appalling. I mean seriously.

  10. What? is it true? kung postpaid ka, every 30 min charge ka ng 10 pesos? so 480 pesos a day & 14400 pesos a month if you are on postpaid?
    you should get the name of the cs, ano kalse sagot yan? walang logic

  13. I have the same concerns (load disappearing only to find out it is automatically deducted for the P10/30 mins. browsing charges that I never even used), problem renewing the BB daily package (being able to receive the registration confirmation from 2207 but not being able to receive the blackberry registration msg, hence not being able to use the service although the P50 was already deducted)

    I’ve already used two prepaid sim cards to test out this new promo, have purchased loads amounting to P470 (out of which P150 were the only ones used for successful registration, the rest either being eaten up by the 10/30 mins. charges or being able to register but not being able to use the service). I have spent 45 minutes each day for the past 3 days talking to customer service and making follow ups on my incident reports but to no avail. I think it’s about time I give up. This promo is really a great idea (and I was one of those who are willing to test it out even if I have an existing BlackBerry plan with Globe, thanks to having an extra BB phone), but the service is really disappointing.

  16. @miguel: oh it’s possible? I will try and call tomorrow (I just got off from talking to a CS and I dont think I can wait and talk again that long), hopefully I can get the refund immediately. It’s been 4 days since I reported the problem (and I reported another one now, I bet I’ll have to wait the same length of time for any progress) but they kept on saying they will just update and forward the report, blah blah.
