In early 2010, when BlackBerry services were launched in India, it was so easy to get blackberry phones with services from Indian Cellular service providers. After a year, when it is so common to have blackberry services activated, Vodafone has almost completely removed information to activate and deactivate such services on user’s devices from their website.
I’ve been using blackberry Prosumer Services from my network provider ‘Vodafone India’ since last year. Now when I wanted to change my device and deactivate my blackberry services, I searched Vodafone India website all over but not found any information on how to deactivate my blackberry services. Recently vodafone customer care IVR has hidden options to ‘Talk to our representative’. When you call 111 or 121, you just hear a lot of options but “Talk to us”! Very user friendly!
After digging the net a lot, I found that we can call on 55666 to talk to them regarding BlackBerry services. I talked to them and got the information I was looking for finally. For such other users like me, who are looking all over the internet for this info, I am posing it here on my website. Hope it would be helpful for blackberry users in India.
