U Mobile now offers BlackBerry with firesale this Friday!


U Mobile has finally joined the BlackBerry bandwagon with a special firesale on BlackBerry Bold 9780 and BlackBerry Curve 9300! This also makes U Mobile, the 4th option for BlackBerry BIS service in Malaysia.

During the firesale, U Mobile is offering the Bold 9780 for RM3 for the first 10 in line. The next 50 people can get the Curve 9300 for RM33 and the subsequent 50 for RM333. Do note that this is only happening this Friday, 21st Jan 2011. To be entitled, you would need to sign a minimum 12 months contract with any voice plan and add-on BIS service. There’s a RM250 advance payment required up front which will be used to knock off your future bills.

The BIS service costs RM40/month and it is mentioned that Internet Tethering & Streaming is not included. Details of their BIS plan is rather limited at this point and we’re not sure if there’s an all-in-one BIS and internet plan for power users. The Blackberry offered comes with 18 months warranty from Brightstar.
