BlackBerry OS 7 Now Available To The BlackBerry Curve Range*

BlackBerry OS 7 For BlackBerry Curve

BlackBerry 7 which was previously available on the new BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 and BlackBerry Torch 9810/9850/9860 has now been released to the BlackBerry Curve range. Unfortunately only the new Curve devices would feature it as they come with double the memory their predecessor (BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300) came with.

Just like every other smartphone manufacturer out there is doing, the new BlackBerry Curve models are allegedly targeted at folks on a minimal budget though I really don't see the truth in that considering the fact that they have higher specifications than the BlackBerry Curve 3G which presently goes for $260 (N40,000). Thus I'm guessing the price could be in the range of $300.

My Experience With MTN TalkOn and HappyLink Bundle

Talkless On MTN with MTN TalkOn and HappyLink Bundle

About a week ago, I was gisting with a  couple of friends when the topic of MTN and free N1,000 credit came up. Apparently by mere recharging your line with a N400 voucher and texting the word HAPPY to 131, MTN would automatically credit your account with a whooping N1,000 worth of free credit.

Skeptical as I was, the "too much money" syndrome set in and I gave it a try only for MTN to deduct N400 from my account balance and subscribe me to the HappyLink Bundle.

According to MTN, the main benefit of the MTN HappyLink Bundle is that you pay a lower price for the collection of services than if you had purchased each of the services separately. This means significant savings for you and of course, greater value for your money!

Partially disappointed in the outcome, I resigned to my fate to make the best of the 22 MTN-to-MTN minutes and 30 MTN-to-MTN SMS that was allocated to me for the next 30 days and then the fun started Winking smile.
