  2. Thank you for the amazing work you are doing. Pls i activated the bb 10 3k monthly plan on my Q10 but the response ive been getting is ' no internet connection '. When i activated it i got the response that it was active and that i should remove my battery then replace which i did but i cant use the internet, i cant use bbm, whatsapp, browse and any other internet related app. Pls help

    1. I guess you have been using that same AIRTEL SIM on your Modem or non-blackberry device (happened to me before). If yes,here's what i did; restart the phone with the airtel sim inside then call airtel customer care if the problem persists.

  3. thanks a lot; working perfectly. good job
