Hi i'm going to be a hybrid user of both iPhone and Blackberry 9630 soon.

I have a few queries please bare with me as i'm a new user. Googling it online gives me so much info till i don't know whether it is helping me or not. lol. Or shall i say super confused till there is one day whereby i'm stressed out.

1st. My SH line is on Smartsurf 300. I understand that i need a BIS in order to fully utilies my bb. Now, when i surf the net, like lets say googling and other website am i using my Bbom? or am i using BIS?

2nd. If i'm having a BIS. When i'm using Whatsapp for instance. Will it use BIS or bbom?

3rd. Bb Pin. How do i go about it? Is it a think to download? Or a thing to play with? Or is it one bb device fixed to one bb pin? Or is it Telcos will give us a specified bb pin?
For blackberry, as long as u don't touch any advanced settings, it will be under bis. It will only touch bbom if u edit these settings such as "APN"
Just read the faq and forget about other sites as they are nt meant for singapore.

Pin is a hardcoded pin into each device individually.

I see. But no matter what, if i change my APN settings to bbom will i still be able to use such things as Bb messenger?

So since i'm going to buy the tour, the pin that seller should know? Or in other words how do i check the pin?

I see. According to some users, no, it won't be usable. I can't confirm it myself since I don't use bbom.

Qns2: refer to FAQ or Those who are buying USED blackberry devices from dealers / internet sellers...

Has info of what u need to know and how to check.

Oh. And I think that tour can't be used with sh. I know 9650 can but only after making calls to sh and etc to persuade them, 9630, I dun remember it being able to.. Works on st and m1 though

Hello.
Export, import, local, overseas, AT&T, T-mobile sets etc etc have no difference. It can be used with any telco's service. The only thing that might hinder will be the telco lock which can be unlocked easily (if come the time, if it is required, it should less than us$9). However, usually will be unlocked already lah. If come the time then ask about that.

If they tell u haven register, and u nvr check urself, then risk might still be there that it is a blacklisted set. I can also say my phone is not registered, but it may actually been or even blacklisted. So, do take note.

Frankly, I can't remember if 1gb is allowed to surf the appworld.
Can please confirm ur APN (options -> advanced -> TCP/IP) is blank. If it is, then I'm not sure already.

Its not possible (from what I know) to split inbox and sent box. You can hide the sent emails though, but not split them..

No. That will be considered as bbom.

What u need here is the service books aka access points. For 1gb, they limit u to only email and instant message is by only giving u the above's service books.

That's why bbom users who REfuse to get bis cnt use bbm and etc services.

Why everyone got the misconception that doc/xls/ppt/pdf files are application?

Treat it as a file. Not APPLICATION.
An application is one where gives u functionality on ur device.

Just copy the files into ur phone's media card. U can use docs to go to open it.

okays.

Hmm. Did you make sure that the key entered is correct and correct network?
Because Its saying u enter wrongly..
Changing 3g to GPRS won't make any diff anyway since its just the bandwidth being used (faster or slower)

Yes. As with any telco, bis is not some free service unlike that of iphones or andriods. Unless you can convince them to change for you
