I guess this will drive more blackberry users here in the Philippines. As for me, it’s interesting and tempting but I’m still happy with my trusty Nokia symbian phone. =) And the few times I tried using blackberry of my husband, the BIS can really be slow but I guess it’s because BIS is somewhere in the GPRS speed, to make it lightweight so as to save battery usage. So the point here is if you need a faster speed, you must have a wifi connection too.

    • Rose Buenconsejo

      is facebook chat part of the facebook for blackberry? if that’s a separate app, then maybe not.

      • PokerFace

        sadly you cannot. the available facebook app for the bb is not yet updated.

      • kaye

        you can download a different app to chat. =) try look for an fb chat via bb world. you can download from there.=)

  20. Correction , Smart’s BB Lite plans (Social and messaging) are P299/month
