Default Bis 3.1

Please Login to Remove!

From BoyGenius Report

Hot on the heels of the release of BlackBerry Internet Service 3.0, RIM has just posted the details for BIS 3.1 in the BlackBerry Technical Solutions Center. The main enhancement to be brought forth in BIS 3.1 is wireless contact synchronization support — something which Gmail users have been enjoying for a while now — but for Alt-N, Windows Live Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail accounts (the latter two require OS 6.0). Synchronizations will be scheduled to occur every fours.

Less noteworthy but something that people who constantly swap ‘Berries should take note of is that you’ll no longer be able to log into your BIS account through a computer, swap your PIN and then rock a different device. From BIS 3.1 onwards, you’ll first need to insert the SIM card currently tied to your BIS account into the new phone, log into BIS, swap the PIN and then proceed as normal. CDMA users will will to contact their carrier.

Happy? Sad? Wondering when you’ll be able to wirelessly sync your calendars?

Dub,

"Synchronizations will be scheduled to occur every fours"

Did you mean:

"Synchronizations will be scheduled to occur every four hours"

This sounds like a needless pain. Is there reason for it?

Wirelessly posted (8520 (5.0.0.411))

The new way to swap devices sounds like a pain. I don't see what was wrong with the previous (current) method.

I just quoted the article. That would be a resonable assumption to make.

The carriers run BIS.

Right now every carrier is on 3.0

Thanks, I guess you are saying that the carrier (in my case Verizon, controls it and that I can not look on my BB to see the version.
