Review of "BlackBerry Messenger"
Hi, everyone cause I'm still at school i arent going to be able to write many reviews compared to some people but will still write a fair few i will always be reading and ratings other peoples reviews hope you can return the favour, thanks x:)
Blackberry are taking the world by storm with their various mobile phones now, they have the curve, bold, storm and torch and now they have released their own version of the Apple's Ipad.Each one of these models has a piece of software on it called Blackberry Messenger (BBM for short), this software allows any Blackberry user to send free and unlimited sms/mms to any other Blackberry device, they call it Blackberry's free text service, but is it really as free as they say ?
No its not, they claim that if you get your Blackberry mobile phone on a pay monthly (contract) phone then Blackberry Messenger comes free as standard but I went into town and had a look at the wide variety of Blackberry's they have to offer on Pay Monthly as I have one myself and wait a minute I thought I remember them saying that Blackberry Messenger comes free as standard on any Pay Monthly Blackberry, well what a lie that is, to get a middle range Blackberry Bold, Pay Monthly price for 300 texts, 150 minutes and unlimited internet is around £27.50 a month, for the same phone you can get 350 text, 150 minutes, unlimited internet and BLACKBERRY MESSENGER but for this one you pay around £38.50.
So if my maths is correct you are paying around an extra £11 pounds for 50 more texts and this so called FREE Blackberry Messenger that is suppose to come free with every Blackberry phone on a pay monthly contract well, obviously not.
You top up for £10 on a Pay As You Go phone, then anything upto £100, Blackberry say if you top up £10 you will get 300 texts and unlimited internet on a pay as you go phone, or if you top up £15 or more you will get 500 texts unlimited internet and this so called free BLACKBERRY MESSENGER, if it is free then when do you have to top up a fiver more than the minimum to get it and if you don’t top your phone up every month they cancel you Blackberry Messenger, and don’t reload it back up for you until you have topped up atleast another £15 or month.Blackberry should stop trying to sell their products more by false advertising its great as a company and the customer services are great but why put a downer on it by saying you get things like free Blackberry Messenger if you don’t. !!!
