Post from BIS to BES...

Please Login to Remove!

I currently have 8700 (which is already sold) and will pick up the 8800 as soon as it hits Rogers. Now I'm getting to understand what Wi-Fi hype is all about, as well on what BIS and BES meant. Got me thinking that my Rogers acct is billed as BIS. Will I be able to continue using the 8800 as BIS or do I have to contact Rogers to switch to BES to be able to use the 8800? I hope not and stay on current billing plan because BIS is cheaper than BES!

BES is usually for corporate users to get their company email. You can get on a BES but you have to go through another 3rd party hosted BES service. If you just bought the BB for yourself, and not using it for work or through your company, then you are not on a BES.

Make sure you close out your current BIS account with the 8700 and release the IMEI and PIN so its new owner can register the device and have his/her own email account. Otherwise, your email will still go to that account.

Yes, you can continue using BIS with the 8800. The model of your BB does not dictate whether you have to use BES or BIS. That's a decision that you make based on your needs.

If you're switching BB's you can just transfer the BIS account to the PIN and IMEI of the new BB. Wiping the old BB or deleting its service books will take care of things after the transfer.

Thank you - this really helped.

Rogers hasn't gotten the 8800 YET! I'm anxious to get it! Hopefully THIS week!
