    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.)

    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.
