I have an unlocked 9790 with BIS service on Fido.
I am going to the Uk for 2 weeks. if I get the T-Mobile prepaid BB SIM and put it in my BB, will it work with my existing blackberry account? Many contradictory posts on the web. Some say no (usually oder posts), some say that will work right out of the gate but no consistency.

When roaming, your BlackBerry should work just fine with a prepaid SIM from another carrier. Fido has partners worldwide and if T-Mobile is one of them in the UK, you'll be fine.
Since you'll be roaming, you're going to pay a LOT for data; that's one drawback of roaming. I would recommend turning on your Data Services only when within range of a good Wi-Fi signal otherwise you're going to get a hefty bill when you return and Fido will NOT cancel any charges.
I hope that helps you.

Thanks for the response, but that was not what i was hoping to do.
While I am in the UK, i was going to remove my FIDO SIM and put in the prepaid TMobile SIM. From what I can figure out, from BIS 4.1 on, I should be able to continue to get my emails etc from hte FIDO BIS account even over the TMobile SIM as long as there is blackberry service on the SIm (whcih there is). The BIs used to be loinked to a PIn and a SIM, now it is just to the PIN. as long as I log on using my blackberry ID. Don't understand the jargon...
Sounds simple, but I cant get positive confirmation that this works in the real world
