Switching from Rogers LG Android to BB8520

Hi All,

 

I currently have an LG Android Eve through work, but I got my hands on a BB8520 for free and I would like to switch phones.  Do I need a blackberry data plan in order to use BBM?  I do have a current data plan through work (the specifics I am not sure about), so I am unsure of what I will be able to do with the BB8520?  Does anyone know what I can/cannot use in the switch?

Yes you need BIS in order to use any internet service on your blackberry including BBM. Call Rogers and have them add the BIS code into your data plan in order to access the internet.

Without updating your plan you **may** still have access to the browser but all Blackberry Services (Email, BBM, Applications, etc) would not function.
