    Default Daily bis prepaid?

    I tried the search, came up with nothing. Basically if I want to use my 9900 on t-mo for a few days here and there while on my travels, can I get the 3$ daily unlimited plan or do I need the 10$ monthly bis plan also?

    Support: What is the BlackBerry Internet Service?

    According the site, BIS service is not compatible with the PAYG or PBTD plans. You may want to give them a call.

    ^^What he said. Last I tried (May of this year), the $10 add-on wasn't compatible on the PAYG plans. As the support article says, if you want BIS data, you'll have to get a monthly prepaid plan.

    That 200MB data does work on Android phones and iPhones though, so if you have either, bring it.

    Edit: also, keep in mind that if you end up bringing a non-BB device and it doesn't have TMO's 3G/"4G" band, you may not get 3G/"4G" depending on where you're traveling to. In that case, you might be better off getting the $2/day plan (if you're considering PBTD plans.)

    Want to find out which radio band your BB10 phone is currently on? UMTS, LTE (careful with escreens!)

    Default Daily bis prepaid?

    Well basically I go to the states a few weekends a year so to not incur roaming charges I would love to have a daily plan especially so that I can use the data and gps. My next device will likely be an android but we will see. Thanks for the answers.

    BIS is only available on the Monthly4G $30 plans and up as others have stated. So in other words, you'll need the Unlimited Web & Text with 100 minute talk plan for $30 or above plus the $10 for BIS.
