Default help! bb in seychelles

Please Login to Remove!

Hi please help
I'm going to the Seychelles for a holiday and was wondering how I would get my bb working there? I checked that my bb is unlocked, so I should be able to use their carrier which is 'Cable and Wireless', but when I get there do I just buy the sim card and then what about the BIS/bb service ? How do I get that? And also if anyone has any idea on how much this is going to cost. They work in Euro's there.
Thank you.
Please help.

I normally don't do people's work for them, but please read this link direct from the provider: BLACKBERRY® - Solutions

Also, they do not appear to work in Euro for most things.

For BIS/email, you need to check to see if the carrier provides pay as you go BB services. Some do, many do not. You will also need to cancel your BIS service with your current carrier so that you can establish it with another one.

The link I provided to the OP shows that they do provide BIS on PAYG, but a trip to a service center is required.
