I am new to blackberry forums, so apologies if I am asking a dumb question...

From what I can make out, blackberry connect is something that runs on a non RIM device to make it work with the regular vanilla BIS. (that assumption may be wrong).

Fido has introduced BIS and sells Nokia E62 running blackberry connect to work on it. Is there any reason that my blackberry 7280 (which I currently use as just a phone on FIDO and would like to get data as well) woudlnt work if I subscribed to the BIS service.

Is there some tweak in the FIDO BIS setup that only allows Blackberry connect devices to connect rather than the real thing.

It does look like the BIS only gives email to the Nokia whihc would be less than ideal.

Finding anyone at FIDO custoemr service who knows anything about the blackberry is impossible to answer a question like this
