Default Blackberry Internet Service Roaming

Please Login to Remove!

I currently have a windows mobile phone from a carrier called nTelos. (Local carrier mainly in Virginia). They currently don't have data roaming with any carrier other than Sprint.

I am in a Alltel/Verizon coverage area. The question is: Since those carriers offer BIS, would my BIS plan from nTelos roam off the other towers since it is done through Blackberry instead of the carrier independently?

No, roaming is still depending on your carrier's agreements and phone capabilities (phone must be compatible with networks in the area).

If your phone can roam on AllTel/Verizon, then you'll be able to receive BIS e-mail.

If not, you're SOL.
