We all know that MTN BIS and Airtel BIS plans has been working on Android devices though that of MTN needs some tweaking with VPN apps but the Airtel BIS is straight forward without any settings but it is charged double whenever you are using it on Android. Some years ago, Etisalat BIS rocked steady on Android devices but later stopped working which made many to start scouting for other means but the great news now is that Etisalat BB plan is back again with another dimension for Android phone users.
The most interesting aspect of this is that you don't need to be rooted, you don't need any VPN application. The setting is one of the most simplest free browsing settings of all time lol.
Do you know that if you recharge N1000 to subscribe for Etisalat one month BIS plan for 3GB, you will be given an extra N1000 bonus to make calls across all networks. Isn't that interesting? In fact, it looks as if the 3GB was given to you free of charge because your money will be returned to you in form of bonus Airtime. Another advantage of this Etisalat BIS plan on Android is that there is no speed throttling and Etisalat network is generally good for browsing and downloading.
NOW, HOW DOES IT WORK? Like I said earlier, we won't be needing any other third party application in other to use this. All we have to do is simply change our device APN and the proxy to TRICK Etisalat to believe we are using a Blackberry device. Let's beging...
