RIM trying hard with The Bold Team!

RIM is not doing very good right now. In fact, it is not doing good at all. They are losing market share everywhere. Once giant in the smartphone industry, no one expected the company to be in it’s position today (Okay, we might be a little bit exaggerating here but it is kinda bad) . But it is not the end yet, with the new CEO of RIM, Thorsten Heins, RIM tries to make the company or their smartphones more consumer friendly by creating THE BOLD TEAM consisting 4 fictional characters.

We think this move is down right desperate. But who knows, this might actually work and save RIM from all of this.

Rm20 Monthly BIS Bonus from Hotlink is gone?

I know many of you guys are very interested in the Rm20/month BIS Bonus plan from hotlink because to be frank, it is one of the best and cheapest BIS plan available in Malaysia. But sadly, I just realize that the plan is no longer available for purchase. If you go to *100#, you can no longer see the monthly BIS Bonus plan available for selection. Only the Rm7/week or weekly BIS Bonus is available now which will add up to a sum of Rm28/month.

But there is some new BIS package available for you now; BIS Lite and BIS Social. From the name, we can tell what does these two package does. BIS Lite gives BBM, Messengers and Emails. On the other hand, BIS Social gives BBM, Messengers and Social networks. So you have to choose to have Emails or Social networks. This sucks! coz the BIS Bonus have everything except for browser internet browsing. Check this out for more info.

Anyhow, new customers of monthly BIS Bonus cannot get it anymore but I wonder what will happen to the existing monthly BIS Bonus plan subscribers? I pray they will still have it renewed every month! *finger crossed*

Stay tuned for anymore updates on BIS Bonus plan from Hotlink!

Update: Monthly BIS Bonus from Hotlink is back! Due to popular demand i guess! Click here for more info!
