    I am Shailendra Deshmukh looser of Black berry cell cost due to non- availability of net service
    We regret to say This black berry stop to sale in India because it configuration is not easy to installed and not supported also not easy with any network secondly cell also very higher side cost compare to other cell and their feature as well as support and function. This only not my personal view while our company employee and person contact also fever to avoid the black berry for using the internet its really very hard to use and affordable.
    I am lot-off time interact with BB customer care but could not succeed to install and browsing. Every time requesting failed and unauthorized request ,find error many of massage given by black berry and airtel even though our company IT support Head and Admin Head given full day to set-up with all support mail provided by Airtel.
    we have recharge Rs.249 pack for net where the vodafone given best service in Rs.58 (2.5GB)five times cost higher and services poor it show that Black berry buyer’s is boob.
    I had purchased last seven day 8520 Curve and now ready to sale.

They told me that I would get some free calls as well as the call rates are also cheaper. But don’t know was that just to attract customers or what??? I just filed my complaint to the but is not any hearing there So I just moved for where I again filed my complaint about the very much charged bill amount. Hope to get some help from them ASAP.

    I just got a blackberry 9530 storm. Verizon unlocked. My problem is I can’t access the internet. Quite alright I called 575 and subscribe for Absolute plan but whenever I try to open the browser, it says service book entries are missing. Where/How do I get the service books for Airtel? I went to crossroads service centre and damn, those customer care people are rude. They didn’t even care to take the phone and try to configure it manually. Please help me. I’m becoming desperate. You can reply to me on twitter cuz i’ll see it faster there
