Re: do you need a data plan to use blackberry protect

Yes, you most have the BIS BlackBerry data plan to use BlackBerry Protect.


And, for the record, Fido absolutely does support BlackBerry. If someone at Fido told you otherwise, they are just lazy or not wanting to be bothered by you, and you should take that up with their supervisor.
