I'm not really sure I understand you...
a) Your 8700 needs to be unlocked
b) FIDO does not support BB only BB Connect. Some people have had success using BBs on FIDO, but tech support won't help you do it because they do not officially support it

Doesn't the OP need to ensure that the PIN and IMEI have been released from Rogers? I'm using an unlocked 8700 from 02 (a UK operator) and it works great...
