Globe's Blackberry Messaging/Social Plans


I just saw it in Globe Blackberry's fan page minutes ago!  They have answered my prayers for cheaper Blackberry services.  Right now I can do somersault in drunken happiness!  Im feeling like a brat who just got what she wants yeyerzz!

Since I got my first blackberry summer of 2009, I've always been fascinated by its functionality.  Understand this from a view point of someone who is most of the time behind technological advancements.  When the latest thing I knew of cellphones back then was 3G and video calls, I was gifted with the BB flip.  I had so many questions.

By the time Globe offered Blackberry prepaid plans I already knew what needed to be done and I was very much anticipating to be able to exhaust my BB's full capacity.  Addiction came naturally.  But *sigh the telco fees were too steep for a student like me.  Shelling out Php50 a day stings my meager allowance.  I couldnt fuel my dependence as much as I wanted to.  On my frequent broke stints, I thank God for wifi!  Now that I got a Curve, Ive lost the capacity to use most BB's apps while on wifi.  

So finally the god of the thrifty and kuripot answered my plea and injected some compassion into my telco provider.  

Globe is now offering Blackberry Messaging and Blackberry Social Plans to all its postpaid and prepaid subscribers at a very low subscription fee of Php300 for 30 days! AHHMAYZING!

Copied from their Facebook Note here's how it works:
