How BlackBerry Works | Importance Of ISP For Using BlackBerry

BlackBerry is truly a wondrous thing, boasting many features beyond your ordinary mobile phone. And its “sudden” popularity didn’t happen overnight. Read more: About The History Of Black Berry.

For those who always ask, “How do they do that?”, this article will give you the answer for that. And you will also understand that without subscribing for Blackberry services your BlackBerry is just a device that can test and call your friends.

You might also be wondering why you didn’t get your BlackBerry from RIM (Research In Motion) rather than from a network service provider (the company that provides your phone and data service) such as AT&T or T-Mobile.
