Blackberry Messenger Akan Hadir Untuk Android dan iOS di Indonesia

[ UPDATED 2013/09/22 Download link untuk Android: http://bit.ly/bbmapk10042 ]

Menunggu bukanlah suatu hal yang menyenangkan. Hal ini terlebih lagi berat ketika menunggu aplikasi Blackberry Messenger hadir di platform Android dan iOS. Personally, kareana saya menggunakan device Android, tentu saja saya menanti-nantikan aplikasi Blackberry Messenger (BBM) yang resmi di Google Play Store. Kemungkinan besar, aplikasi terbaru dari Blackberry Limited ini akan dapat di-download di sini.

Namun terakhir kali saya memeriksanya (2013/09/21 21:30), BBM client belum keluar di halaman tersebut. Mungkin anda sudah tahu sekarang, bahwa banyak sekali aplikasi-aplikasi BBM di Google Play Store sekarang yang sebenarnya adalah semuanya palsu. Jadi jangan anda terpancing untuk mendowload dan menginstallnya.

Hal ini sejalan dengan apa yang @BBM katakan bahwa aplikasi BBM untuk Android belum di release.

Twitter - @BBM for iOSSaya akan memantau terus perkembangan ini, dan akan segera mengupdate page ini dengan download link dari aplikasi BBM for Android atau informasi tambahan lainya mengenai hal ini.

NOTE: Jika ada dari anda yang mengetahui “keberadaan” BBM for Android, terutama untuk market Indonesia, silahkan share linknya di section comment di bawah ini.

Blackberry Bold 9900 Dakota Phone Review

Here we are…talking about the hottest Blackberry phone in the market, Blackberry Bold 9900 Dakota.

It took me 2 years to realize that my old Blackberry Bold 9000 was getting rusty and close to the point where I have been wanting to throw it to the wall. It failed me so many times. Imagine this…it froze every 2 days and sometimes, it even froze right when there’s an incoming call!! I ended up unable to receive the call and had to reboot the phone. So I told myself, “that’s it. I need to change my phone.” So I decided to switch to this sexy Blackberry Bold 9900 Dakota.

Alright…enough with my rambling about how I got this phone. Let’s get down to our business, shall we.

How to Unlock Blackberry Bold 9000 for AT&T with 7 Easy Steps

If you were a frequent traveler either for personal or business trip, you might have been wanting to unlock your phone and use the local cellphone plan to make phone calls, instead of using AT&T’s International Roaming plan. Believe me, you will be charged with premium rates. Last time I checked with AT&T, they will charge you $3.49/min to call landline phone in Indonesia, and $3.53/min to a cell phone when you are using AT&T’s sim card in Indonesia. It is much cheaper to just use local service provider.

Since I’m using AT&T service, I’ll tell you how to unlock your Blackberry as an AT&T customer.

Step 1 – Obtain the Unlock Code:

You must be with AT&T for at least 90 days. Call AT&T by dialing 611 and speak with AT&T’s customer representative. For my example, I told the person that this Christmas I might go back to Indonesia, so I need to get my phone unlocked to use my local sim card in Indonesia, instead of using AT&T’s. You can use similar reason depending on your needs. You might have to go overseas for business trip, visiting relatives, attending friend’s wedding, etc. He will then ask your name and last 4 digit of your social security number. If everything goes as planned, he will then give you the 16 digits unlock code, so make sure you have pen and paper ready. If they ask for your IMEI number, press *#06# on your mobile device to find your IMEI number immediately.

Step 2 – Options:

Go to Options and choose Advanced Options.

Step 3 –  Sim Card:

Select Sim Card option.

Step 4 – Settings:

You will see under sim card option your phone ID number and your actual phone number.

Step 5 – MEPD:

While you are still on this scress, type “MEPD” – without the quotes. As you can see below, that your Network locked is still active. This means that your phone usage is still locked to AT&T services only.

Step 6 – MEP2 and Entering the Unlock Code:

Type “MEP2” – without quotes. A prompt will pop up asking you to enter the Network MEP code. You will enter the unlock code that you got from the AT&T reps.

Step 7 – Final:

Check to see if the network lock has been disabled or not. If it has, congratulations….you just unlocked your phone.

Well…those are the steps that I did to unlock my Blackberry Bold 9000 from AT&T. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comment section below.
