Rocking a BlackBerry OS 7 device on Idea Cellular in India? Here's something that may be of interest to you, as BlackBerry announced today that it is collaborating with Idea in providing a 1GB data plan to all postpaid customers running a BlackBerry OS 7 device for just Rs. 83 ($1.4) a month, or an annual fee of Rs. 999 ($16.5). The caveat here is that the plan covers 1 GB 2G data.
Although the BlackBerry Z3 is seeing a lot of interest from mainstream consumers in the country thanks to its aggressive pricing, a large portion of BlackBerry users in India are on BlackBerry OS 7 devices. Existing Idea Cellular customers can activate the offer by sending an SMS to 12345 with 'ACT999ARP' as the subject line. While we would have liked to see 3G connectivity being offered instead of slower 2G speeds, the plan is worth considering out if you're already on Idea's 2G network.
