9900 without BIS

Hi,

 

Is there anyway to have the bbm working on BB 9900 without the blackberry service?

I am really happy with my 9900 and OS 7 and I don't want to upgrade to the new bb10.

 

If not, is there any way to have the OS 7 installed on the Q10?

 

Thanks

Yes, BBM will work on the 9900 with a WiFi-only connection. As long as you have the BIS data plan on your account. So, sorta a hybrid yes-no answer.

No. That's not possible and I'm not sure why you'd want to... like putting a two-stroke lawn mower engine in a Porsche. But, no.
