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.
