Blackberry email/ BIS on bb10

Hey, I'm just wondering, do the bb10 devices need BIS? At all?

If not, does it still help reduce the amount of data used? Or it really pointless for bb10 phones?

Thankyou!

Re: Blackberry email/ BIS on bb10

Hello,

BB10 does not use BIS at all...only a generic data plan, like all other brands of SmartPhone. In some cases, it has been reported that if BIS is left on the account by the carrier, that it will actually impede the functionality of BB10 services.

Good luck!
