Ban will not go into effect- a sigh of relief for BB users.
Certainly a sigh of relief for all BB owners as Etisalat announced that Blackberry services will not be suspended on October 11th. Not only will the services continue but the new Torch and Curve will soon be making an appearance as well. Here is the official blurb:
Since the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority’s August 1 announcement regarding the possible suspension of certain Blackberry applications, our focus has always been to ensure continuity of service for our customers. With the TRA’s notification of uninterrupted Blackberry® services in the UAE, we are pleased to confirm that all Blackberry® services will continue to operate as normal.
As a service provider to over 80% BlackBerry® users in the UAE, Etisalat will continue offering exceptional services to its existing and future BlackBerry® customers. In light of the TRA decision, the alternative mobility packages announced by Etisalat in August, for its existing BlackBerry customers, are no longer applicable.
Etisalat also announced that it will be launching two new BlackBerry devices – the Torch and the New Curve, along with other exciting offers in the coming days.
