MTN to Discontinues Support For Blackberry Services

This is an interesting tale of how the mighty has fallen… It reminds me of the first deadly blow Blackberry received from WhatsApp, that kept it unbalance and as a result extensively affected their market share and caused Blackberry to bow to pressure by producing her first Android powered device in 2015 called Priv.

Blackberry Priv failed the company in every aspect. In November 2016, Etisalat discontinued supports for Blackberry service . Dec 17th 2016, Glo followed suite… While we are still trying to find an alternative way for Blackberry users to install WhatsApp on their device, MTN released their condolence prayers to all Blackbery users today;
"Dear customer, MTN Blackberry service will be decommissioned on 27/01/2017. Please upgrade to a smartphone and enjoy 100% bonus on any data bundle purchased"
Meaning goodbye to BIS and BBC subscription on all Blackberry OS7. If you are still using it, you will no longer be able to access internet on that phone again. It is time to upgrade to a smartphone.
