BlackBerry Storm2 on Fido

I am an Iphone user, and for a change I like to experience BlackBerry (Storm2 9550) so I switched phones! Calling, Text Messaging and Wi-Fi works well but when I use internet through my Data PLan, I cannot connect to internet. even BlackBerry messenger does not work. Can somebody help or tell me why?....thanks

You have a standard data plan when you are using the iPhone. This is ok if you use ANY Device EXCEPT BLACKBERRY.

When you use a Blackberry device, you NEED to ensure you have a data plan that is a BlackBerry Data plan. Rest Assured, your BlackBerry Data plan will also be compatible with the iPhone and other non-blackberry phones, but gives you the special access to the blackberry server that is required for ALL blackberries to operate on the Fido Network.

What Paola is saying here is right on the money. If you just call Fido and tell them that you are using a Blackberry they will just switch you over to a Blackberry data plan. And then you will have an all access pass to Blackberry exclusives like BBM! Smiley
