    Do you think BIS will ever come to BB10/Q10/Z10?

    I really miss BIS on my 9900. Especially with it's mail capabilities that the BB10 has lost..

    I really wouldn't mind paying the extra buck a month to add BIS to my phone plan

    What do you all think?

    One of the biggest complaints about BlackBerrys was the need for a specialized data plan, especially in countries and on carriers that didn't support BlackBerrys. If your carrier didn't provide you the option to get a specific BlackBerry data plan then the device was virtually a dumb phone. BES is still there for corporate use, just like it's always been. But non-corporate users can now use the same data plan as iPhone users and Samsung users.

    If connecting to the BlackBerry infrastructure is really important to you then you can get a hosted BES account via providers like ExchangeMymail.com

    Have a read of this great post by Omnitech - should give you some food for thought :-)

    Especially this part:

    "But 4G LTE web-browsing power would have been severely crippled if web traffic had to be routed, as traditional Blackberries did, through BIS. BIS adds quite a bit of overhead to high-speed web activities, and that overhead would have made it impossible to compete effectively in the marketplace against other popular smartphone devices. It would have been like shooting yourself in the foot."

    I'm curious. What mail features are you missing?

    I know the "Delete on handheld" and BIS data compression features have some users PO'd. Personally, I'm almost completely satisfied with the BB10 email experience. If we could get suggested contacts limited to the contact list, I'd be at almost 100%.
