No. Bis is a value add on service. Its billed monthly. Just like u need pay monthly for ur telephone bill and caller ids.

I'm afraid I'm not in position advice this. However, the general trend (esp for those who have the data already for more than 1 month) seems to be a strict no-no as contract agreement has been signed.

However, if you were to add-on the service, yes, its possible. In fact, for singtel u can have both + multisim so u can use the same line on both iphone and blackberry. This will allow you to use both devices without the need to change sim cards.

Oh that's just great lol. Just sold off my iPhone 4, and gonna get a Bold2. Need a non-camera phone. After reading this though, gonna get a headache. I have a 10gb data plan already. Even on iPhone cannot finish. How to finish on BB???

anyway let me get this straight. I need to get the BIS plan as an add-on to use appworld (1gb cannot?) bbm and other purely BB services right? and also, about Bold2. any huge differences from normal smartphones i need to take note of?

HAha. Thats why the same headache all iphone converts have
For Singtel, 1gb can only email and instant message. For the rest of telco and 3gb plans, can use email and other apps.

The big difference - High security, slower speed (from iphone), less apps, better battery life and need bis to use its niche services.

WHAT? Twitter also cannot? Honestly, is there any way to get around this? 3gb bis is $25 is it? that's way too ex. my existing plan is already $70.

Instant messaging dont include twitter... Facebook also not instant message.. its called social networking.

Of course there is. Ubertwitter is what i use. Better than twitter app and its free. [Use ur local data rather than bis]

If not, there is ways which are not legal of course. Local and international laws applies..
