    Today has been a goooood day

    So I went and topped up my phone, and the day before I was with my friend who I bought my Bold from seeing if we could get on the BIS account which he used on the Bold to unlink it, no joy but the service books etc. had no trace of any BIS account.

    So I thought I'd try my luck today and see if I could get one up, and it worked! I'm in love 100x more with this Bold now! The guy said that usually on PAYG on Orange, BIS costs 5 a month from my phone balance, I was like "Ok" then he said "... But you've been lucky, as since you've just registered your SIM with us I was able to get you the 6 months free BIS"

    Anyway, that's my story. Feel free to add me on BBM (If you're looking at this straight away the PIN wont be there, but I'll put it up in a min.)

    BIS = BlackBerry Internet Service. There's also BlackBerry Enterprise Service which businesses usually use, but that requires a BES server to be set up for that business.

    BBM = BlackBerry Messenger

    Dang...I use BBM all the time, never referred to it as that .

    makes sense on the BIS, since I have a BES setup at work no need for BIS.

    thanks for clearing it up
