I use an E5 too and i must say its an excellent fone. With apps like: whatsapp, torchlight, HD games, skype, radio, mail on d GO etc The only downside is the lil data data bundle of 260MB for 1k(etisalat) which doesnt give me enuf leg room to download as i would have loved. Where as BIS subscription goes with 3GB for next to ntin

Oga  is one of d 'ideal' fones for nigeria. Wit d charges for data plans nd wat not, I tink  is an ideal fone on d go.push notifications,unlimited data bundle for one mnth for jst a token of 1500 or so(depends on d ntwrk). Maybe if we had wireless connectivity in d country, android or iphone or any oda fancy fone would be prefered bt we in naija niccas!

sexy glow: My dear when you send an sms from a phone number to another is called text message right? in Niger a message from a BBM contact to another is called pinging.

Oh I see. Thanks. Pinging = text messaging. I even googled "pinging". LOL. [font=Lucida Sans Unicode][/font]

walcolm: BB is a solid enterprise device. it was built originally for business uses and offered zero entertainment or fun factor

if you know what you are doing and you are business minded, with just a BB and absolutely no laptop or desktop around you, you can keep in touch with your business associates all over the world as if you are working from your office. no other smartphone gives you that level of dexterity, security and robustness when there's no PC around. you can churn out solid business proposals with text and graphics on the go. you can stay on top of all your emails no matter how many email addresses and which server is hosting those email addresses

most people started being able to use BB when the company started releasing general end-user friendly versions which was heralded by the release of the BBM that most people now talk about.

when the BB10 is released next year, the BB will be at par in terms of fun and entertainment as you currently get on androids and iphones

sumtymes i laff at nairalanders when they fail to give a constructive critique, yet insult and want to argue with a point. The question remains, "what can a bb do that other smartphones can't do"? I use a nokia E7, and its not only one of the best to have come out from Nokia, bt from the technological world. So over to BB freaks, apart from pinging and "unlimited data plan". Wat can a BB do that my nokia E7 or timbros E5 cant do?

I still prefer Nokia to BB because here in Maiduguri, you need to wrap your BB with a water soaked towel before it charges or place it on a chilled sachet water and to top it off, keep it inside a refrigerator.

#facts bbs is manly used for it's unlimited data cap and pinging. blackberry have been knock out of the top five phones by 3 phones running on android. Nigeria is the only place bb still sells... talking about mail there 100s of apps. that are very fast in delivering of mail(k-9 mail).. I've used a bb but if you want the best out of a mobile phone try an android phone...

for the last years.


Pinging is a BB app for fishing. Activate it and stand close to the nearest river and count your catch. Heard it works perfectly well in California. Give it a try.
