Blackberrys in Doha??

Posted in Qatar forum

I am moving from Ireland to Doha and have just taken out a contract on blackberry bold. My network are going to remove the blackberry package so I will not have the phone for internet, only texting and ringing. Are they illegal in Doha? Wil I get arrested for bringing it into the country? I would really appreciate some light shed on this as it is really bothering me that I will be paying out money every month for a handset I have to leave in Ireland.

Thanks!

    Hi Sam,

    Do you mean yes there is a ban or yes that Qatar is not involved?
    Thanks for the clarification. :)

    YES BECAUSE THE SERVER IS NOT UNDER THEIR CONTROL BUT I BELIEVE IN FUTURE WILL HAVE THEIR OWN SERVER AND RETURN IT TO SERVICE.

    I just purchased my Blackberry Bold in London and it was officially announced that UAE has banned bb messenger with Saudi lifting the ban. Qatar has never been mentioned so can you confirm this August 15th thing as I was told previously that Qatar was not involved.
