I think it means you have to wait for the blackberry services such as bbm and app world and everything! I normally have to wait around 12 hours but takes less than that!

Well then it will be the same! So yeah it shouldn’t take that long. Mine normally takes 4 hours but it helps if you top-up a little before the package runs out because it just takes the payment and runs as normal! Well on mine anyway.
