How to Use Glo BIS to Browse on Computer | PC

I’ve been receiving queries such as: how to use Glo BIS on PC? does Glo Blackberry data plans work on PC? and many others. So today, I want to share a simple tutorial on how I was able to use my Glo BIS on my BlackBerry and at the same time use it on my PC.


Nigerian ISP data plans specially made for PC’s are just too expensive to use, but in the case of BlackBerry Internet Service plan, they are relatively cheaper than the normal data plans. So Nigerians have been devising various means to use BIS meant for BlackBerry devices on PC, since BlackBerry is commonly used among Nigerians and the subscription price is relatively cheaper than normal data plans.

The fact is Glo BIS works well on PC. I have a friend that has been using it for the past three years without any problem. I also tried it and it works, but due to some difficulties with Glo network in my area, i resorted back to MTN Night Plans.

Steps to Start Using Glo BIS on PC

You need the following to be able to use Glo BIS on PC:

  • You need a Blackberry Phone [not modem]
  • BlackBerry Desktop Software
  • A USB cable

Note: Not all Blackberry phones work. I noticed Curve 4, Bold 2, Bold 3 and some other BlackBerry phones work.

You can buy the BlackBerry Desktop Software from the market or download it online from here.

After the installation of BlackBerry Desktop Software, go to Tools >> Mobile Internet Settings to create a new connection settings using as the APN and *99# as the access number. Now connect your phone to your computer using the USB cable and then finally click on Mobile Internet to connect to the internet.

  10. Blackberry Desktop Software does not allow the use of ‘’ as an APN

    • @Solomon, that simply means it doesn’t work with your phone. The other way round is to download ‘tether’ from app world and also download it on your system. WIth that, you will be able to use your glo BIS on PC without Blackberry Desktop Software.
