BBM-Passport-Hero

Over in South Africa it looks like BlackBerry are having a purge on getting more folk signed up to BBM and you can't blame them as it's without doubt the best instant messaging platform around.

If you're in South Africa and are a BBM user, on any mobile platform, you can win R1,000 airtime just by getting as many of your friends to use BBM as possible. It works like this; you need to already be a BBM user and from today you can start recruiting new BBM users. Each recruit must be new to BBM, have a minimum of 10 contacts by the end of the contest and send messages regularly.

The 1,000 people who recruit the most new BBM users will receive R1,000 prepaid airtime value deposited to their prepaid account!

What are you waiting for? Start inviting your buddies that don't already use BBM.
