On 31 January 2021 we’re closing down our Blackberry Internet Service, which includes BBM, internet browsing, email and access to Blackberry app world. This means you won’t be able to use data on your Blackberry from this date.
What your options are
If you want to continue using your Blackberry for data, you’ll need to make changes to the internet settings on your device. You’ll then need to use the internet browser to access your email rather than the messaging app. Details on how to change your internet settings are in the FAQs below.
If you’ve already got another smartphone, you can transfer your sim to this smartphone at any time before 31 January 2021.
