    This offer has been around for a while now and in fact it used to be free for the first 6 months and then 130 thereafter AND you can use it on any Elite Plan including the basic one. Btw, check your last line :P

      That’s from the press release. :p

    • Abbas Jaffar Ali

      But the free offer was restricted to when you buy a BlackBerry device from du. Now you don’t need to buy a device.

  • J_sekharan

    if i activate the Black berry service, is it possible to deactivate after 6 months

    • Abbas

      Yes you can cancel before the 6th month. There is no commitment required. The only thing you cannot do is deactivate and then reactivate back at 55 Dirhams. If you try an reactivate, you’ll have to go to the full 130 dirhams package
