Globe BlackBerry Messaging

Was looking for a way to get push email for the BlackBerry, and found Globe's BB Messaging service.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Learned the following from a November 2010 BlackBerry Messaging / BlackBerry Social FAQ of Globe BlackBerry in Facebook...

1) The most affordable plan which has unlimited push email is BB Messaging (P300/30 days).

2) Or you can go for BB Social (also at P300/30 days), but instead of email you Social Networking (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace).

3) In both of the above, you get BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) and Instant Messaging. Also, please make sure that you don't have an existing data service (ie. Super Surf for BlackBerry).

What happens if you also want to surf the internet using your BB?

Well in that case, you'll need to subscribe to Super Surf for BlackBerry (P1,200 a month or P225 for 5 days, or P50/day).

Or here's something else you can try: Get the Globe Super Stick MyFi for P1,200 a month so that up to 5 devices can connect wirelessly to the internet. Depending on your area, you'll probably get 3Mbps.

Then, with BB Messaging you'll get email notifications. You can then connect to your MyFi and check your Facebook account, for example. (Thanks for the tip, Lilac!)

Yes, you'll end spending P1,500 a month (P300 BB + P1200 SuperStick), but this will be worth it if there are other members in your household who surf the net, or if you have other devices (e.g., other smartphones, iPad or Samsung tablets).

The Globe BB Messaging + Super Stick tandem will be useful particularly for mobile internet professionals who provide technical and customer support via email, Twitter, and Facebook.
