d. Nokia

ANSWER: Blackberry
A statement posted on BlackBerry’s website that the service will no longer operate in Pakistan from 30th November 2015 because “remaining in Pakistan would have meant forfeiting our commitment to protect our users’ privacy”. PTA or Pakistan Telecom Authority notified that BlackBerry Enterprise Services would not be allowed to operate December onwards for security reasons. PTA had clarified that other Blackberry services such as messenger and Blackberry internet services (BIS) would continue.
