Reliance Communications or RCom has announced a new unlimited BlackBerry messenger (BBM) plan for its BlackBerry customers across India. The BBM129 plan will offer both RCom postpaid and prepaid customers unlimited BBM access for a month. Along with that prepaid users will also get 600 (20 SMS/day) local or national SMS, while postpaid customers will get 500 local or national SMS every month as a part of the bundle offer.
To subscribe the plan, Reliance’s prepaid customers need to send an SMS ‘ACT BBMPRS129’ to 53739. Postpaid customers can call up Reliance Customer Care 1800 3000 8989 (Toll free) from any phone; or *389 (toll free) to activate the service.
BBM is a native Instant Messaging service for BlackBerry smartphones which allows BlackBerry users to send and receive short messages and attachments instantly to other BlackBerry users, wherever they are – in the country or outside.
Along with RCom, other Indian cellular service providers such as Vodafone and Airtel are also offering a similar Go BBM plan for its BlackBerry customers. The Go BBM service offers unlimited access to BBM at Rs 5 per day or Rs 129 per month for prepaid, and Rs 129 per month for postpaid subscribers.
The BBM129 offer form RCom is available for both the existing and newer postpaid customers and can be activated on their device from today onwards.
Although the RCom BBM129 plan is similar to offers of other telecos but it still gives more value for its customers as RCom is offering an additional 600 SMS for both local and national usage to its customers along with unlimited BBM usage whereas Airtel is just offering 300 SMS along with unlimited BBM usage.
