Why did I buy this phone?

OMG I'm so having problems with my BIS services I can't even deal. I just found out why Hotlink/Maxis eats up my credit like dog food.

So okay, I'm currently on the RM1 BIS Social plan. (I just got a BB you see... How typical...)
There are certain days where I would activate my BIS and there are other days where my phone becomes just a phone. Not a smart phone. Haha. Get it?
With regards to my credit suddenly vanishing out of this air, DON'T BE FOOLED BY YOUR "FREE APPLICATIONS". Apps that needed downloading via BBApps are required to PAY even though it says "Free" but you still need to pay for the data space. Well, I was not aware of that.
And applications that require big data spaces like Foursquare, are going to charge you.

Thus explaining the sudden "low-on-credit" status.

Now, as for activating and deactivating the BIS services, I find it extremely hard to process the deactivating part. But when it comes to activating the BIS service, it happens really quickly. Been trying to deactivate this God damn service for more than an hour now. And it still prompts "Services are unavailable at the moment. Please try again later."

Hm. This is stressing me out.
