    1. please how can i subscribe to mtn on techno N7,mtn use to exhust my airtime when i,m browsing.

      follow the above procedure or recharge your phone with N1000 and text without quotes "BBC" to 21600 for one month bis subscription. Mtn BBC Plan cost N1000 and has a data cap of 350MB while BIS plan sost N1500 and has an unlimited data cap. You can subscribe for the bbc plan and after exausting the 350mb text "2H" to "!31" for just N250 and you bbc plan will become unlimited.

    1. it works. Make sure you select the sim you have your mtn sim on on your task bar and select the blackberry,net access point. After selecting the access point the data logo which is represented by "H" for 3G and "e" for edge will appear. Use this as a guide to know if you have done the seetings correctly.

  19. Hello Tim Silver, your blog actually enabled me to be able to root link2sd my P3. The issue now is using the blackberry subs. There is no avenue to create "New APN" in P3 settings. You only get to see Two apns by default - MTN NG (where u have the web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net settings) and MTN MMS. Should I just change the MTN NG APN to blackberry.net? and what does the WCDMA mean? Thanks

    ReplyDelete

    1. WCDMA (Wideband Code
      Division Multiple Access) is simply 3G network. It is the most popular umts network used this days. You can do a research on it but it's simply represent 3G network!

      Delete
  20. You can create a new APN by tapping the left soft panel of your phone when you open the access point settings of your phone but if that's not the card which I doubt then you can change the default apn to BlackBerry.net! Thanks for the comment and your feedback will be appreciated.

  21. I am impressed with this work of enlightening people you are doing. This simply a fulfillment of one the reasons for your existence!
    Pls, i have three questions to ask
    1. I'm intending to buy Tecno Phone this coming week. Please, which among Tecno F7, N7and Q1 do you advise me to buy? And why?

    2. Pks, do these Tecno really have 3G Network as seen in many specifications...? And

    3. I read it in one specications that these phones are "Single SIM functionality with option of dual SIM version". I dont understand. My question is does it mean one will have to be swtching from one SIM to the other?

    I will be very grateful if you can give me answers to these questions
    Thanks!

    1. Thanks for your comment!
      !. I advice you get tecno F7 not because it is the latest in the market at the moment but because it's the best you can get for it's price and i must admit it is way ahead it's predecessor Tecno N7. It is also the device that users of all other Tecno andriod phones which includes N7, Q1, N3, p3 and all the others hope to get.

      2. I have a Tecno N3 and have being using it for 6 months and have also used to other smartphones along and am telling you that all the tecno phones with 3G network included in thier specification have 3G and the perfomance is faultless!

      3. No, you don't have to be switching as both sims work simultanously the only thing is that on older Tecno android phones with 3G excluding Tecno F7 3g network is only Sim 1 and edge or 2G network is on sim 2 and the speed is preety good depending on your network strength.

      My advice for you is to look ahead of the brand name Tecno and buy the Device{F7} because of the hardware. i can assure you that you will be amazed.

      Thanks.

      Once again thanks so much!

      N.B: Before, i close sir, pls, i want to ask
      1. Which network do you know is faster in browsing, especially when one is when all network is strong, which is applicable to where i live. And

      2. Is etisalat unlimited data plan possible on TECNO F7?

      I wait to receive your responsd sir

      Delete
    6. Pardon me for the delay. You can add me on google+.
      1. I recommend you use Airtel as they are the most reliable network in terms of reliablity and coverage while in terms of speed MTN may arguable be the best but is not reliable as the network's strength in your location will definitely affect the speed and this apples to other network. I recommend a combination of MTN and Airtel.

      2. No Etisalat unlimited data plan no longer works on Android phones.

      Thanks.

You will find your networks default access point there. to turn your data service on go to your home screen and drag your task bar down i.e where you have your network logo and tap the fourth icon. this will toggle your data service on.

      2. Yes, you can root it. to find out how click here

    1. Yes, MTN has stopped BlackBerry.net apn from working for non BlackBerry devices but since you still have 2 weeks subscription I suggest you carry out the steps below.

      download and install tun.ko and droidvpn from google play store respectively. Create a free account with droidvpn. Download and install busybox and lastly your phone must be rooted. Anyway, if you mange to download and install all this. Go droidvpn setting choose 'icmp' as connection type and you are good to go.

      the method above worked before BlackBerry.net started working for Android phones and is still working. Although, it has its limitations has it won't go when there is no bis network and others.

I later changed APN to 'blackberry.net' hoping that it will activate the earlier BIS but also no response. Any hope of MTN BIS working or what other choice do I have, Airtel?

    1. DroidVPN is a tunnelling app used to secure your browsing and bypass netwok restriction. it is no longer working for MTN BIS. i suggest you use GLO BIS.


      DroidVPN encrypts all the data you transmit over the Internet via an encrypted secure virtual tunnel between your device and our servers. This provides a protective shield to your android phone or tablet because you are accessing the Internet securely through a guardian third-party. Think that slows down your connection? Actually the encryption/relay process takes just milliseconds, and many international websites tend to load faster than before. Works with Wi-Fi and when you travel

      When you connect to the Internet via an unsecured wireless connection, such as a Wi-Fi hotspot or hotel, your important emails and passwords may be getting broadcast publicly through the airwaves for anyone to see. DroidVPN is ideal for anyone who travels and uses their android devices a lot because it works in any location and encrypts all data transmissions for your security.
