Default Disable BIS temporarily from device

Please Login to Remove!

I am using a Blackberry 9500 with several Blackberry Internet Service Mails (BIS) set up. To avoid high data charges when travelling internationally, I wonder whether it is possible to deactivate the delivery of BIS from the device to ensure I only receive messages when I want to (e.g. when I am in an aerea with a preferred mobile network).

Any ideas?

Thanks - but wouldn't that also disable my ability to receive calls and txt messages? only looking for an option to disable data transfer since this is not covered by my international price plan and would cost up to 25/$35 per started MB/day.

This will only disable data, not your phone calls or SMS messages.

Alternately, you could login to your BIS site, and use the filter option. You could specify filters for important mail you want to get, and indicate that if no filter applies, DO NOT forward.

Login to your BIS account and edit the email account in question. Click the checkbox next to "Forward to Handheld". When you are ready to receive them again log back in and re-check it. Note: You will not get any mail received during the time it was unchecked on the device even after you have re-enabled it.

If you disable your antenna you won't receive calls.

I agree that best is to 'uncheck' it on your BIS website.

You can also disable 2G/3G network from the device.
Options / Mobile network / change data services to 'off' or 'off when roaming'
The menu options may have different names on your devices because of either different BB and/or OS versions.

Hope this helps

Ummm, Kids, if you shut your radio connection off, you won't recieve calls, texts any thing.

What you want to do it.

Options>Mobile Network>Data Services>Off When Roaming

That will set it so that when you're not on your home carrier, data will be stopped.
