can i use BIS on prepay?
i have the latest curve and was using on accoutn when i was with a company (they paid for it)

and im pretty sure when i put my prepay card in it was working, i have sold that number (it was a really godo one) and now got a new prepay sim... now it doesnt work

im almost certain it was before..

quite strange because when i was on account with work google maps didnt work but email did. then i switched to my old prepay number, and wow google maps worked straight away. then i got new number and now nothing works

how do i use the email side of things on pre pay?? the guy at the shop said only on account.... but the retail guys dont know much.

fellow geeks?

BIS can not be used on prepay at this stage it would of worked for 48 hours then stopped. If you are using a prepay sim in a blackberry make sure you disable data on your handset or you will find your credit will slowly be used up.

You need to sign up for the BIS account plan with Vodafone to use it.  I think it's $49.95 a month from memory.

BlackBerry Internet Email Monthly Access Fee

BlackBerry Internet Email Monthly Access Fee includes 3MB of national GPRS data on the BlackBerry APN, including browsing via the BlackBerry browser. As all traffic is compressed, email and browsing through the BlackBerry browser on your handheld will use up very little of your monthly data allowance. Any use over the 3MB will be charged at $2 per MB, rounded to the nearest kilobyte. So even if you use a little more than 3MB, it won't cost you a great deal.
