  1. you clearly say R199 includes Blackberry internet services , but then you say for prepaid R57 per month for Blackberry internet services (prepaid and contract)

    i have the R199 contract and still have to pay the R57

    zulaika Alli

  2. R199 includes your BIS fee in the BB package. if you don’t take the standard deal,you pay other price a indicated

  3. Why is the only contract for the blackberry bold on cell c the 700 business Other providers are charging less for a lower package ?

  4. I’ve been trying to get a solution from Cell C with my Blackberry 9700 Bold. Each time the phone is cut, I’ve already paid the R57 but I still cannot set up my device for email

  5. Cell C Blackberry Services !!! LOL What a crock of shit !! You can get the service only once you can get hold of th technical department and after you've been holding on for hours and then you have to do this and that………….. Cell C should probably send someone on a course at Vodacom where you simply sms "Blackberry" to 100 and Bobs Your Uncle BBM, BIS or whatever it's called, works………..
