DIGICEL GROUP FIRST CARIBBEAN CARRIER TO OFFER INTEGRATED BILLING WITH BLACKBERRY APP WORLD
Digicel announced it’s the first provider in the Caribbean and Panama to integrate carrier billing with BlackBerry App World™.
Enabling the convenience of a single monthly bill, Digicel’s customers will now be able to charge their app purchases from BlackBerry App World™ directly to their Digicel monthly phone bill or using their Digicel prepaid credit.
The service launched in Panama for prepaid customers in mid-October and is being rolled out across Digicel’s 23 Caribbean markets over the coming six weeks.
BlackBerry App World™ is the official app store for BlackBerry smartphones and is designed to allow customers to easily discover and download applications.
David Hodgers, Digicel Group Head of Products, commented; “We are delighted to be delivering another important first to our customers in Panama and across the Caribbean. BlackBerry App World™ offers thousands of opportunities for customers to access and enjoy their music, games, news and entertainment in the way they want. Now, they can access a broader world of entertainment and information, and buy and pay for apps simply and securely via their monthly phone bill or their prepaid credit, enjoying a truly personalised smartphone experience.”
