Default Using Rogers BIS with their mobile internet option

Please Login to Remove!

Do you know if as soon as we use the Rogers BIS, they do know that we are a BB user.

I'm asking that because they have a mobile internet plan, in their wireless essentiel, for 5$ including 2MB. So i'm wondering if I would be able to use the BIS but with this plan wich is far less expensive!!!!

No, BlackBerry's require a specific BlackBerry Data Plan. With no BlackBerry Data Plan you have no data on a BlackBerry period, just voice and SMS.

The $5 navigate data pack that includes 2MB of data is for wap on cell phones only. This will not work on a BlackBerry. You need a BlackBerry data pack added to your existing voice plan or you will need a combined voice and data pack.
You can only have access to BIS if you have a BlackBerry data pack. When it's added to your account and your account is provisioned for BlackBerry use you can use BIS. With a navigate data pack such as the $5 for 2MB of data you will not be able to use BIS or have any wireless data connectivity on your handheld.
