Does it mean I can’t browse on my BiS plan?do I have to pay for another data plan?
its connecting but not browsing
I tried, all that…downloading the software, connecting 2 the bb 9900, but it failed to connect. I used the settings given that is etisalat profile name and blank fields for username and password; apn settings as etisalat. It still doesn’t work. What do I do?
It deduct credit
What’s the point? when all it does is eat your Credit!!!
When ever I try connecting it will connect and the open my browser. Then etisalat website will open and tell me that I should buy etisalat even when I have BIS
Its not working with BIS….or does it work with BIS…please give me a guide
