    Long story short: is a 9780 (os 6) capable of initiating/receiving BBM voice calls on BIS?

    I have a Passport and the other party a 9780 and I'd really like to chat with that person, however, she does not currently have the BIS activated. I know that basic BBM'ing would work, but i'm more interested in voice calling, strictly on BIS, not wi-fi.

    I'm just asking to be sure, so that she doesn't activate the Internet service for nothing.

    Hi. I am no expert on this but if you want cell tower Internet on that phone BIS will be active. If BIS is not active I don't think you have Internet.

    So... once the phone is connected to the cell towers and you have Internet you are good to voice chat on bbm.

    This is what I think.
