    Hi and welcome to the forums,

    Unfortunetly all data goes through Blackberries NOC which requires the BIS plan. A generic data plan through your carrier will not work.

    For example, if i were to have a 5gb data plan on a iphone and went to go to a blackberry that plan would be useless with out BIS being enabled.
