Hello Buddy, I know most people do not know that glo bis works on android phones and i just want to clear the air on that. I quite understand that before now, there have been speculations that glo bis subscription can be used on android phones but there haven’t been much noise about it to clarify that believe to been positive. But just before i hit the hammer on the nail, let me quickly share with you, how i came about this.

Around last week, i traveled to Benin. In the course of my visit, i decided to check on some friends who i haven’t been opportune to meet since this year. When i arrived at a particular friend’s house, i realized she was using an android phone. Gioneer android phone to be precised. Been a guy who enjoy talking about cheap browsing and stuffs which relates to phones, internet and browsing, we got talking on how much she spends monthly for subscription on her android phone.

She smiled and said she spends just N1000 monthly.  Without much guessing, i asked if it was glo bis plan and she said Yes. Trust me, i needed to find out how she does it. At first, she was reluctant to letting me know, but after much persuasion, she finally gave in. She said she did a tweak in other to making it work.

Okay, enough of the story. The point is, glo bis works flawlessly on android phones. Trust me, i am not just going by her word. I needed to confirm it before posting it here on this blog and that was why i had to use my brother’s Tecno android phone since my android has been hospitalized for sometime :-).

Steps To Use Glo BIS On Android Phones

All steps i am going to be outlining here are the steps in which i followed in other to use my glo bis subscription on an android phone.

==> First and foremost, Make sure you have an active glo bis subscription. GLO monthly bis plan costs N1000 and you are given 3GB.
==> Use the subscribed glo sim in browsing on a blackberry phone for like 5 minutes or more. Any Blackberry can work. In my case, i used a blackberry Q5 and in my friend’s case, she used a blackberry torch 2.
==> Remove the glo sim from the blackberry phone and insert it to the android phone.
==> Normally, when you navigate to the internet settings on your android phone, glo internet settings should be made available by default.
==> Edit the default APN setting and use blackberry.net. Leaving the username and password as flat still works.
==> Save your settings and enjoy using your glo blackberry bis plan on android phone. That’s like getting 3GB of data for just N1000 monthly. Isn’t that incredibly cheap?

Better news is, If your android phone has hotspot feature, you can turn it on and other phones, computers and devices with wifi feature can connect to your android phone and browse with the glo bis subscription in it. However, i would advice you set a password for your hotspot to prevent unauthorized usage by persons living nearby.

Next, I will be trying out if GLO BIS works on PC Computers using modem and if that is successful, i will definitely let you know via this blog hence you are advised to always watch out for my latest posts.


  1. I discovered that Glo bis works on system too….. but it takes a little step…… it won’t work on modem ….. but if u r using a bb phone u can simply install bb desktop on ur pc…. after a successful installation u can then connect ur bb to the pc with a good cable then go to internet setting in the bb desktop and use a new settings… APN; blackberry.net…. name: glo ng…. leave every other options empty….. and enjoy new discoveries….

  2. 2015 for my glo to connect, I had to open and connect super vpn with my airtel line on the other sim and later change to glo data before I can browse with glo bis

  3. hello Samuel. thanks for ur help on dis blog. but when I put my sim in my bbq10 it does not connect after my comonth subscription. as u said we should use it to brows for at least 5 mins on BB b4 using it on an android phone. even i tried it in my gionee m2 android with d changing of d apn setting to blackberry.net. but no show and my subscription in running out now

    • The comonth works on bb10 without issues. You can even subscribe on the bb10. For the android, the idea trick now is to change its IMEI to a blackberry imei. We’ve covered how tos on this blog.

    • For Samsung device, it’s advisable you give it to someone who changes phone imei because the software required is expensive.

    • Glo bis still works on PC flawlessly. Just make sure to use a bb10 phone in sharing the connection via hotspot to your computer using wifi.

  4. Is this tweak still working? Coz I tried it and I changed the apn settings on my android fone to blackberry.net and itz still not connecting

  5. Dr seven was callin in respect to ur last message I will b happy u can just post it on ur wall here (I mean d imei) bcos was callin but ur line isn’t goin tru

  6. Plz u must root the phone and change its imei before it would work.its only mtn and etisalat u don’t need 2 change ur phone imei.if u need assistance doing it call me on 08137060372

    • Dr Seven, Yes. That’s if you want to use bis directly on the android phone. For those using a bb10 phone, they do not need to change their android phone IMEI as they can simply share the sub on their bb10 phone to their android and glo bis works very well in this case.

  7. it works on PC too just
    (1) Create a new profile with any name of your choice and make it default
    (2) Use blackberry.net as ur APN for your newly crreated Profile,
    (3) Using your blackberry subscription on your blackberry phone access any Blackberry service( BBM, Blackberry world).
    (4) Insert your Glo sim into your modem and connect. flawless network and soo sweet to use

    NOTE: whenever you disconnect your modem you miight need to boost it up with a blackberry phone again.


    Many thanks to Samuel
