    Default Is BIS setup automatic?

    I have a non blackberry smart phone on a 6 GB plan.

    Suppose I get a blackberry and plug my simcard in. Will BIS setup automatically on bell or do I need to call bell to activate it? It's a 6 GB plan, so there's no difference on the website between my plan and a "blackberry" plan.

    Default Re: Is BIS setup automatic?

    From my past experience, you will need to make sure your data plan is a blackberry data plan. Then you will be able to configure BIS accout on the Blackaberry. When I did the switch, I realised a lot of things were not available on the BlackBerry. After I contacted Bell, they simply switched my data plan to a bb plan and everything worked including configuring a bis account or other email accounts.

    Hope this helps.

    I was trying to figure out whether I could grandfather my plan (that doesn't exist anymore) when I switch to a bb10 phone.

    According to this thread, you don't have to switch your plan when adding BIS, you just call bell and ask them to turn on BIS which means I can grandfather with ease
