Default FIDO has MSN - will it work for BB?

Please Login to Remove!

fido is now advertising that they have MSN...i don't know too much about it really...anyone know if it uses SMS for sending messages? that would suck...

is it a java application? if so then can BBs use it?

Probably not, for the last time BlackBerry's require a BlackBerry specific data plan which Fido does not offer. What does this mean, a BlackBerry on the Fido network is little more then a PDA phone that does SMS.

Well it could very well load, as for free well as all Robbers Wireless customer know nothings free. If it does work I'm sure it counts against your data or there's an SMS charge.
