BB protect issue

Hey BB'ers. Well, after reinstalling BB OS6; BB protect App. stopped backing up displaying a status “service plan doesn't include BB Protect”, while another BB Apps. work normally. The service provider said the service plan is giving a proper work report; telling me to review App. settings on device.
Mentioned issue kept occurring unlike before the reinstall via BB Desktop. Therefore, I changed the BlackBerry ID but resulted the same. So, what should I do?

Re: BB protect issue

Hello Marwan_bs


Welcome to the forums. 


In order to use BlackBerry® Protect you will need to have a data plan the includes the use of the BlackBerry browser. If you are on a social only plan then you will need to contact your wireless service provider to have your data plan updated. 


Hope this helps. Have a good day.

Re: BB protect issue

Thanks but what is meant in updating the plan?
Do you mean to deactivating/activating the plan as a plan reset? If so, they don't allow making such action. Maybe I should wait till the plan validity expire to subscribe a new one, but what shall I do if next subscription had same issue in BB protect?
