Default Re: BIS discontinued?

I'm thinking that although BIS worked very well that BB began to view it as a liability. When it occasionally went down, RIM suffered world wide condemnation. BIS required investment in infrastructure. Phasing BIS out means money saved in the long run. Charging the subscription fee for BIS is also becoming more difficult or at least less attractive to consumers many of whom have existed quite happily without BIS for some years now.

I'm going to miss it but BBM will, if I understand correctly, still be BIS like.
