The major evil in migrating from legacy blackberry devices to the new BlackBerry 10 devices is the outrageous data allowances offered by the networks. In the beginning they allowed we the wise ones to continue rocking the old blackberry data plans on the BB10 platform but lately they've shut it down now except on the Airtel network. Unfortunately Airtel's internet service is so annoyingly dependent on location i.e. on the roof of your building, under your bed, in the toilet, at the left hand side of your refrigerator etc that I got tired of it recently and decided to suck it up and just go for a dedicated blackberry 10 plan.
Imagine my surprise when I checked out Globacom's site and discovered that they had silently increased their data allowances per plan as shown below. Even their retail office over here, are still sharing out the old BB10 data plans on fliers.

To subscribe, simply load enough credit and then text the appropriate keyword to 777. Your plan should be activated within the hour. You might need to remove your battery as always to get it working.
To check your data balance text STATUS to 777
If your BB10 data plan is not activated within the hour and you can't reach customer care, simply tweet at @GloCare and you'll be attended to instantly.
For some reason, probably because I'm on the leaked BlackBerry 10.2, I had to fiddle around with network settings before my device could register to the network.
Enjoy folks and spread the word. Thanks
