Unlike Facebook for Blackberry (RIM’s) which require a data plan for you to be able to use it every time, RIM’s Twitter for Blackberry can actually work even without a data plan, but through wifi.
Before proceeding, please be reminded that I applied this on my Blackberry Curve 8520, with a v126.96.36.1991 OS. The Twitter for Blackberry version is 188.8.131.52
Update [June 6 2011] For Twitter 2.0, go here
Here’s how I did it.
Note: It’s pretty simple! But before you can open Twitter for Blackberry, you really need to subscribe to a data plan first.
- You initially need to be subscribed to a data plan to be able to access the software. That’s the only way to do it. I subscribed to Smart’s BB DAY for 50 php. That’s unlimited for 24 hours.
- After you are able to open the software, you need to configure it first. You need to log in with your Twitter account.
- I am not sure if you will be able to see this on set up, or may be after set up. But here’s the option which will enable you to use your Twitter for Blackberry app over wifi:
- Just make sure that option is checked and when prompted, just save the changes. In case it takes time to load the tweets, or it is unable to reach the network, check your network options and reboot your phone.
Voila! Now you can have Twitter for Blackberry all over your twitter profile! You may tweet through your phone over a wifi network 😀
