It is a new dawn to android users in Nigeria as Globacom Nigeria launched the cheapest data plan in Nigeria. This newest data plan by Glo is called Glo Special and it works seamlessly on Java phones, android phones, window phones, tablets, Ipads, PSP consoles, personal computers (through modems) except on BLACKBERRY. It’s quite unfortunate that the cost of BIS 3G data plan on BlackBerry phones was increased with N400 few weeks before launching this amazing data plan. Meanwhile, the new data plan that works on other devices except blackberry phones including OS10 phones (Q10, Q5, Z10, Z30 and Z3) goes for a cheaper price with more data. On this article, we will show you how to use this Glo Special Data Plan on BlackBerry Os10 phones with no hassle. Below are the necessary steps to follow in order to enjoy this wonderful data offer by Glo.
Choose a Data Plan: As you can see on the image on step 2, you will be allocated 2G for N1,000, 6G for N2,000, 10G for N2500, 12G for N3,000, 18G for N4,000, 24G for N5,000 and 48G for N8,000 . Thus make a decision on the amount you want to spend on a data plan. I will recommend you go for 6G or above has you will only have to add just N600 to your normal N1,400 BIS subscription perhaps to enjoy downloading and streaming videos on sites like Youtube, Instagram, twitter and the rest without having to worry too much about data exhaustion.
Process Your Subscription: After ensuring that you have already loaded enough airtime on your phone, the next step is to process your subscription by dialing *777# on your blackberry Os10 phone. Select option 1 (Data services) on the pop up, select option 1 (Buy data) again on the new pop up, After selecting option 1 to buy a data plan, select option 2 (Monthly plans). The next pop up will be options to select the amount of data you want, as we recommend choose N2,000 for 6G or above. When you are done with this, a message will be sent to you by Glo as a confirmation of your subscription.
Change Your Phone Settings: Without changing your Access Point Name your new data plan will not work on your Black berryOs10 phone. To do this, go to settings on your phone, tap on Network and Connections and tap on Mobile Network. Tap on APN at the lower side of your screen, the next you will see on your screen will be Access Point Settings. Change the access point name from Blackberry.net to gloflat and ensure you leave both username and password columns blank, then tap on save at the right corner of your screen.
Kick Start Your Data Plan: Now that you are done with settings, put off your network or activate airplane mode and de-activate it. In couple of seconds your data should be on and active.
Checking Your Data: To check the amount of data allocated to you or the remaining data left on your plan. Dial *127*0# and a pop up will respond with status of your data plan and expiring date.
