Thinking of switching back to BB ...some qns

Hi guys,
Am thinking of switching back to blackberry as my google apps doesn't work in china 90% of the time and they've even blocked out VPN.

1) Will BB BIS roaming work in China?
2) Can it handle xls, doc, pdf attachments well now? My last BB was a BB curve...
3) When I subscribe to BB BIS as a VAS, BIS will use the "1gb" for only BB emails and all other things like youtube, whatsapp, etc will use from my main data plan?
4) I know that you can now install android apps, but can anyone help me check if the CIMB Itrade Singapore trading platform work ??

thanks a mil!
Cheers

i don't think BB 10 devices need BIS plans anymore. Am using a BB Classic, handling word, excel, PDF are ok. Android apps can be found in Amazon App store.

I use iPhone & BB, like the combination of both as BB is quite user friendly too.

Hey many thanks for the reply. Does that mean that the BB10 device will use IMAP/POP3/Activesync like any other android phone? My aim is to be able have my blackberry device "pull" email from my corporate Google apps account then push it to my blackberry. Is this doable via BB10??

I was a loyal user of BB till my company decided to use Afaria to connect to mail server. That's where I change to Android. You'll first have to confirm first that your work mail server will allow BB devices to connect.

1) BlackBerry 10 devices don't need BIS now. Normal data plan will do.
2) Docs to Go app pre installed in the BlackBerry can view and edit doc xls Pdf.
3) see point 1
4) i tried downloading the CIMB trade app from Google play store (sideloaded ; see Crackberry forums on how to do it) . It loads fine on the login screen (don't have an account with them, so I can't try further)

Thanks all again. You guys probably know this already but I found an apk called "1mobile market" and I've found everything I needed so far using this app.
