Default Use BB with different Carriers BIS Data plan

Please Login to Remove!


I am on Telus network with a BIS data plan. I have never created an account nor have I registered my handset (PIN/IMEI) on the Blackberry Telus website.

We are using our own [email address] address on Exchange server/BES EXPRESS and have activated our handsets through USB connection.

One of our users is travelling on vacation and wishes to get a BB Prepaid plan with BIS data in local country. The actual handset is unlocked.

To avoid excessive data roaming charges - will it be as simple as a sim swap and all should work including company email?

I have been reading this forum extensively but have not yet encountered any threads similar to my scenario. All that I have read is to request the current provider to release the PIN - but the PIN was never registered in the first place so there is nothing to release. correct?

Can someone please explain if this will work.
