Suitable Internet Bundles For Your Android Phones in Nigeria

It is well known among android phone users that the android operating system consumes a lot of data. Use of wifi would have been a suitable means of accessing the internet if only wifi hotspots were common in many places within the country.

It has been noticed that blackberry phone users enjoy the cheapest internet service in the country, with the blackberry plans providing more data for lesser costs when compared with smartphone internet plans. Some individuals have been complaining about this fact; why should such plans be available to blackberry phone users while other smartphone users pay more for less? It is known as a fact that blackberry phones offer data compression, thus consuming less data when compared to other phones.
It has however been discovered that the blackberry plans offered by some of the telecom companies in Nigeria, Airtel and MTN in particular, can be utilized on android phones as well. So how do we go about it?

How To Free Up Internal Memory On Your Android Phone

A lot of android phone users are faced with a common problem: how to increase the size of the internal memory of their phones. Although some of the phones come with the feature of allowing applications to be installed directly to the sd card or allowing already installed ones to be moved to be sd card, others may require the use of extra apps such as app2sd.

Browsing On Your PC Using Airtel's Blackberry Subscription

Post image for Airtel Subscription Codes And Internet Plans
If you are familiar with internet subscriptions, then you will know that the normal PC subscriptions offered by our network providers are not that pocket friendly. The cheapest airtel internet bundle for PC is the airtel plus plan, which gives you 3GB of data valid for 30 days at a cost of N5,000. There is also another plan for smartphone users that gives you 1GB of data also valid for 30 days at a cost of N3,000. This fee isn't affordable for some individuals. It seems however that the blackberry bundles are cheaper.
