Default I need some help with terminology

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a blackberry for the PDA fucntions, I hated carrying a phone and palm pilot together, and now that I only carry one around it's great.

I'm with Fido on a voice plan.

Now people here said that they do have blackberry capability they just don't use it.

If I was to phone them up and ask them to provision my SIM for blackberry use what exactly would I say to make it look like I know what I'm talking about???

Thanks for any help.

I don't think you can based on the following from Fido's website:

Will Fido's customers now have access to Rogers Wireless handsets and devices such as the Treo or the Blackberry?

No. Although Fido and Rogers Wireless are now owned by the same company, they are separate brands and each offers its own selection of unique handsets and monthly packages.
Fido customers will have access only to the products and services offered by Fido.
To me, this sounds like as a Fido customer you cannot get a blackberry plan, as they do not appear to offer one on your website. You would have to move over to Rogers when/if your Fido contract is up.
