You will agree with me that two sundays ago Airtel made an announcement that stirred up emotions especially to those that make use of the Airtel BBM subscription on Pc and other non blackberry devices. For the benefit of those that never received the text, let me recap; Airtel sent an Sms to all her users threatening to halt their blackberry Internet Subscription(BIS) from working on non Blackberry devices. Details of that information was written two weeks ago. Check my previous post for that.
Few days after Airtel took to that decision It was discovered that Etisalat BIS subscription works on non blackberry devices. Unlike the Airtel that demands no special configuration to work on non BB devices, the Etisalat Bis demands some kind of special task before it can successfully function on non Blackberry devices.
