    That's right. BIS is tied to your device PIN through the carrier's SIM and if you insert the SIM already tied to another device, it will ask to transfer your mom's email settings to your phone and remove it from her phone. I don't think you want it to do that.

    Even if you don't transfer, it would still automatically cut the BIS off to the other phone leaving it useless. Because something like this is what's usually done when you get a new BlackBerry and move your SIM to it.
