    I wish that BlackBerry would offer us an option to pay a nominal ($5/month) fee to utilize BIS. The data compression alone is worth it.

    Any others feel the same way?

    Downside of BIS, not all carriers offer BIS on pre-paid when travel abroad.

    I would like to see BlackBerry offer their own encrypted email service at $5/month. A solution that can integrate BBM where it can be access via Desktop application, mobile device (BlackBerry) and a web portal.

    Wonder if BBRY can do this by utilizing other networks. Could be an interesting way to offer subsidized phones.

    It would be nice to just offer it as a service with no carrier involvement for non-enterprise users? It would be like using a proxy.

    Who said BlackBerry hasn't thought of providing their own consumer BES subscription?

    And classically BB devices had BIS. Perhaps they should change the name to almost classic.

    That's what BIS was, a diluted BES for consumers.

    Surely they can't call it "enterprise" if they offer it to regular consumers.

    BIS isn't dead as it's still being used - it's just not being used for new devices.

    If I they offer BIS, just for the Classic, i'll throw way my Q10 and PlayBook :P. Cuz BIS is so bloody cheap in India. It's just $6/month on H+ network with unlimited download(no limit or speed throttling).
    Otherwise, my Q10 is the sexiest beast on the planet :* :P

    The BIS requirement to use data was the reason for why I gave up the 9900. I had to pay like 30$ extra every month here in Denmark.

    If you want a classic that runs on BIS buy a bold. They still sell them. Otherwise take this thread to the bis forum.

    That is the issue in most countries. Bis is an add-on which is costly

    No, they don't sell them anymore, BB might but carriers don't.

    I believe the OP's request is very relevant
