Using BBM while overseas

I'm planning on travelling to Ireland in the summer and intend on purchasing a pre-paid Vodafone sim card for use with my unlocked Blackberry 9700. I read online that I must release my pin from fido in order to us features such as BBM while having a vodafone sim card in my blackberry. Is this the case? Thanks.

Don't do the release PIN and reactivate on Vodafone...  The blackberry would work on the Fido BIS just by inserting the Vodafone Sim Card.  

 

I've tried it in the UK with Orange Telecom and in Switzerland with SwissCom.... no problems.

 

By the way, from personal experiance, Orange is much better than Vodafone.

If it is just for BBM it should work.

If you want your emails as well Yes you will have to call
