    Default bbm bis. help

    Hi. I bought bbm so £5 extra on my contract. Basically when I turn wifi on I get bis on and the bbm symbol. Wen I turn it off the symbol goes as well. This suggests I can only use bbm with wifi indoors. I need to use it on the go! Help!!!

    £5 extra on your contract for BBM only? You were done! I get full BIS services for free on Voda.
    No idea why you can only connect on wifi though. Have you tried registering the HRT?

    When you see that list, press the Menu key to the left of the trackpad and select Register Now. You should then get a message confirming you're connected to BIS.

    You NEED data services ON. That's how your phone connects to BIS.

    Depends on your plan.
    If you haven't got inclusive data, then it will cost you. I get 1GB data/month included so it doesn't cost me anything.
    If you haven't got data included... use wifi

    As BBM is included in your plan, you won't get charged for that either on or off wifi. You will get charged for internet data though, so just make sure you only use that when you're on wifi.

    Can't think of any you can set up to stop you using it. Just remember to only use it when you're connected to wifi.

    Open the browser, press the menu button and select Options. Scroll down to Prompt Before and tick the box for Closing Browser on Escape. Back out and save

    *** You need to close the browser with the "Escape" button - NOT the end call button. The "end call" button just minimizes the browser, and you will still incur some data usage. If ever in doubt, close a program by going to Menu, then looking for "Exit". If there is no exit, choose close. (It can vary, especially with 3rd party apps.
