Default Fido & what happens when i remove BES

Please Login to Remove!

Hey there,
I just got a a BB7100t and after tons of research I found out it is not possible to set up WAP on the BB without a Blackberry plan. So for the sake of fun I called fido(canada) and signed up for the "Blackberry Connect" Plan. For $40 month it is really too expensive, so I think i will get rid of it...

Now the question is...

1. Since I have the service books, is there any way of runnings WAP applications (data applications like a opera mini which do not use BES) after I have called up Fido and told them to remove the Blackberry service?

2. Will the service books dissapear after Fido removes me from their system as a BB suscriber?

3. Where will i place the APN and what softwares will I be able to use?


Thanks in advance

My first post here!
Did you get your BB7100 working on Fido with the BB connect while you were signed up for the plan?? I've got a P990 that I would like to use the BBC with Fido. Thanks!

Yup, BB Connect worked fine. The broweser, the email (which you can setup from a website whose link is provided on the fido BB connect website). THe moment i called them and asked to set it up it worked. Its just that its $40/month for the cheapest option. So after testing it out (and im sad that i wont be able to get email on my BB) i took the service off. It was awesome while it lasted LOL
