Default Speculation: Is Rogers preparing to introduce BIS 2.0?

Please Login to Remove!

The reason I'm starting this rumour is that the sign-in screen has changed. It's a whole new layout/colour scheme and it now says "Copyright 2006 Research In Motion Limited" whereas it used to be something like 2004-2005. Once you enter it's the same old BIS 1.8. But you have to wonder if it might be the first step in a transition.
EDIT: Apologies in advance if this belongs in the Rumours Forum.

Sounds like it is, but better read these threads before you do.

Thanks. I am going to consider carefully before I upgrade. The deciding feature for me will probably be whether they support the new Yahoo integration. I would love to be able to archive on Yahoo. Currently the auto-forwarding in Yahoo MailPlus completely bypasses the account.

Doesn't support folders so I don't know how you would archive.

BIS 2.0 is already released, new BB customers have it already. Starting next month they will begin to migrate existing customers onto it. There will be a pop up when you log onto BIS asking if you would like to upgrade or not.

Not easily. I guess I would just go into Yahoo on the web and physically move emails to a subfolder before deleting them on my Blackberry. I admit that this doesn't sound like a wonderful system.

Thanks for the info, Nitty. I'd better start doing my research.

Does 2.0 work in Firefox? This 1.8 is very ugly.

Actually this post on another thread from prubenstein is interesting:
"One of the options you will see when you try to delete email from accounts you have set up using the BIS 2.0 interface is "On Mailbox and Handheld". If you choose this option, the email will be deleted from your handheld and from your underlying email server (if it is compatible with BIS 2.0 -- yahoo and earthlink are both compatible). So if you like to leave email for a period of time on your underlying mail server either as back-up or to give yourself the opportunity to download the same emil onto your home or office computer, do not choose this option, choose the one that deletes only from the handheld."

That is exactly what I am looking for: delete on my Blackberry and leave the email on Yahoo. So if Yahoo integrates in real-time on Rogers I will upgrade.

I created a new BWC account on Rogers yesterday (to replace my old one) - it uses BIS 2.0 - it is very cool!!

Yahoo / Rogers push is just as fast as the rogers.blackberry.net address!

Berry One and Hopetindall,
Thanks for the confirmation that Yahoo integrates with Rogers BIS 2.0. Now I am waiting for that pop-up to upgrade....

Was true. But no more with BIS 2.0.
BIS continues to be the name for the service by which Blackberry subscribers get a carrier.blackberry.net email address that integrates with their handheld (and can integrate other non-BES accounts).

If you can't wait, call Rogers and ask them delete your WebMail account. When they do, new account you create will be on BIS 2.0.
