    My fellow BBs, lucky you out there across the world whereby your net providers like Rogers alow you guys to download files,
    Here in South Africa anytime soon or by next year, we will be no longer be able to download files using BIS, coz since they realized S.A is buying lot of BB, they might use this, as an advantage to RIM.

    @Zakud, well, bro, if South African net providers are doing this to us, then, we won't consider BB as a phone to be bought...now I'm using a 9360, my next upgrade won't be BlackBerry again...coz they now have nonsense reasons over the net, its not us who abuse the net.
    @2c....you may laugh as you can, but I'm pretty sure that you don't have same problem as us...if you did, you would have given a better response

    Yip MTN is really the worst network, I'm lucky if a file can finish downloading with getting error, and its not even big files its like 2mb or 3mb
    @zaku use ytconv.net clipconVerter.cc/mobile and youtube-mp3.org

    I'm on cell c and they don't throttle their network I get between 100KB/s and 290KB/s never had any problem downloading stuff but yeah on vodacom I always had a struggle and never tried mtn because everyone said it was total Bullsh+t so if you guys want try Cell c depending on your area and 3G coverage you'll be happy with their service

    O yeah that cool man. Look it simple, this is the Email you need, coverage@mtn.co.za just launch a complaint there detailing your problem.

    Mine was freed in less than 3 days. Another smart method, download operamini. Download what ever and when it fails simply navigate to options and select Downloads from there you resume your download from where it failed. It pretty cool and fast as local browser.

    Look guys I've discovered a method that has helped me download files as 150kb/s on MTN. It quite easy and interesting. Just add me 2A7E4D7D and you'll be downloading your MP4 porn again you dirty perverts! Yeah Mp3 and all that too. We have to keep it under cover or else MTN will throttle this one too.
    lol, tell me more about it

    Well cell c has done it. Downloading has been throttled. Can't donwnload my series n movies nor any uhm shared files. There us a way to download torrents and any youtube videos by the way, using BlackBerry if you haven't been throttled. But m not telling you.

    First. As a fellow South African I'm stunned at the spelling. Just. WOW
    Second. Your paying R60 ($6) for use of BIS, on any other local network that get's you 500mb if your lucky.
    Thirdly. The reason your all being shaped to death is because your abusing the service, so not surprised

    You are being throttled for abusing the service. I'm on Vodacom in Cape Town and on the rare occasions I use my phone to download mp3's or whatever, I get 4-500KB/s. I know other people in the same area on the same network who get speeds like 5KB/s because they're abusers.

    You just solved all my problems (Nkanyiso Nzuza).

    To the fellows complaining about abusers...well we paying to use it. Anyway whether I download 1MB or 1GB, besides congestion, there is really no other impact on the service providers. Its just that South Africans and Africans are being exploited by themselves...as always

    Guys, im with mtn for years, i honestly dont want to change, but im feeling like i have to. Is there anyway i can download video's and mp3's without changing over to another service provider? I purchase the full bis package for R59. However when i do, im unable to download from any site. It starts the download then just gives up. Does anyone know of anyway i can change this?
