My wife and I are going to Melbourne in March and i am trying to work out the best option for between Roaming vs Buying local SIM's once i get there
We both run Blackberry's on XT mine is a company one (on a BES i manage) and her's is on the BB Smartphone 50 plan
I know that the data/txt plan allowances will not be used while roaming. We both use BBM instead of text and would prefer to keep using that while away. I am planning on turning off email redirection to my BB while away as i dont want work to be bugging me but still want to use data for BBM, Google Searches and mapping etc so just turning off the data while roaming is not an option.
Does anyone know if any of the mobile networks in Aussie support BIS on the cheap prepaid plans and if so what ones and heres hoping that the BB 9700 and 9000 will work on that network if the do have BIS.
Of course Blackberries will not use standard Data plans so hence the need for one with BIS to acces all the things above that i mentioned.
any suggestions welcome
