Good day
I will be traveling to Zim for a month and I naturaly can't do without my BB.
My carrier in South Africa, MTN, does not cover Zim.
Will it be poosible for me to buy a sim card in Zim and use it in my BB and still have access to BIS?
If so, what carrier should I use in Zim

Hi Muntahaa,

Zimbabwe carriers doesn't support BlackBerry services. Check the BlackBerry website http://worldwide.blackberry.com/.

You have now two options,

1) Ask you SA operator and know whether they support EDGE/3G roaming in ZIM or not and the associated cost for per MB use, and

 

2) take your BB with you in ZIM and hock it with any open Wi-Fi network. This will give you access to all of your BB device application except App World. By the way you won't be able to make any voice calls.

Unfortunately Zim doesn't have BIS or BES as yet.
