    I have an unlocked AT&T 9700, I will be traveling and plan to buy a prepaid SIM with BIS service.

    Will I be able to swap out the sims or do I need to de-register my AT&T BIS account and create a new one with the new carrier?

    you wont need to de register, but if you will be using BIS you will be having to register it with the new carrier.


    at least i never de registered with Bell when using a TMO Flexpay Sim

    You don't have to de-register, you'll automatically be registered on the prepaid BIS SIM.


    however..I do not recommend registering any e-mails with the prepaid BIS service because whenever I have done so with my Bold 9650 overseas, upon coming back home and re-registering with Sprint (home provider) I wasn't able to register any e-mails with Sprint's BIS and my PIN was still tied to the prepaid provider overseas, even though everything else worked perfectly (browser, BBM etc), and it takes a call to second-level customer support to escalate it to RIM, who then releases your pin, to solve it

    Sorry, I should have been more clear, I need to use it for email.

    I need to access email on my BB overseas.

    you can just get a PRE-PAID data plan included, not available by all carriers but try to look for that.

    then just activate it. it will do the job.
