MTN has joined GLO by announcing that it will discontinue Blackberry services (BIS) in Nigeria starting from the 27th of January 2017. This includes
Blackberry Internet Services popularly known as BIS. Though Glo has totally discontinued theirs.
In a message sent to subscribers on Thursday, MTN said:
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
MTN said about the issue : ” meaning you won’t be able to subscribe to any blackberry service by that date. However, you can upgrade to a smartphone and purchase any of our data bundles.”
This notification follows Whatsapp’s announcement that it will discontinue services for Blackberries on December 31st, 2016, a deadline which was eventually extended to June 2017.
On a good side of the notification, MTN promises Double Data Bonus once you upgrade to a new smartphone. So i will advise you to throw your kpalasa away and switch or upgrade to a smartphone.

A fresh set of renders alleged to be of the upcoming BlackBerry DTEK70 (Mercury) has leaked. The leak - which came in the form of a Weibo post - shows the black colored variant of the device, from both front as well back.
The front of the device revealed by these renders is broadly inline with what the live images of the handset - that surfaced in December - had revealed. Also, specifically, the physical keyboard looks similar to the one that was teased by a TCL executive recently.
Coming to the back of the device (it's probably the first time we're seeing the back of the DTEK70), it's hard to miss the big rear-camera module on the top left. The BlackBerry logo is sits prominently in the middle.
As for the specs, the Weibo post reveals a 4.2-inch display, Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3GB/32GB memory configuration, and 3,400mAh battery. The post also notes that the handset will be made official on January 4 (today).

WhatsApp is supposed to stop working on BlackBerry phones and some Nokia that are running the BlackBerry operating system, including Symbian phones as well.
But the grace period upgrade to an Android or iOS device, in order to continue to enjoy WhatsApp or say goodbye to the world's most popular instant messaging applications.
In recent notifications sent to users,
WhatsApp has extended support until July 2017, so if you still use a BlackBerry device running the BB operating system or Nokia old school devices, make yourself a favor update.
In the meantime, this extension excludes phones with Android 2.3 and earlier versions, Windows Phone 7 or iOS 6.
Chaiii I wonder what people continue to do BlackBerry and Nokia symbian phone, when they are very interesting android smartphones out there to buy.

Today, I have good news for Blackberry users, earlier this year, WhatsApp and Facebook have announced that they no longer support Blackberry users, which caused a large pandemonium among its users and Started selling their devices after that was a detailed tutorial on how to use WhatsApp on Blackberry smartphones after December.
In February 2016WhatsApp it announced that more support its implementation at the end of 2016 in these devices listed; OS Blackberry, Blackberry 10 Nokia S60 devices, Nokia S40 devices, Android devices ranging from Android 2.1 to Android 4.1, iPhone 3G / iOS 6 and Windows Phone.
But all this changed as WhatsApp changed its mind. They announced a blog post saying that extend the media for the Blackberry, BlackBerry 10, S60 and S40 devices to June 2017. So I advise you to use this second chance to save some money And upgrade devices to support the use of WhatsApp before.
