Unlocked Blackberry data plan question

I'm a participant level 2

Hi all, I am planning on buying an unlocked blackberry and I have a question about the data plans on fide.

I am currently on $17.50 RET plan without any data.

If I add the 1gb data add-on for smart phones will I be able to use Blackberry services like BBM, BIS, and push email? (I choose the 1gb plan because I would also like to browse websites)


Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone,


That's correct greggy777, a BlackBerry data add-on is required in order to be provisioned for BIS. The BlackBerry add-ons will push through the service books to your device allowing you to use BBM, BB email, web browsing, etc.
