Dear sir/madam,

 

That's mean for the first time for new phone, its not necessarily to charge for 8 hours?


Correct, it is not neccessary to charge for eight hours. You can only charge to 100%, if that takes one hour or four.

No, BIS is no longer used on BlackBerry10 model devices.

A generic data plan via your mobile provider is all that is needed.

Actually no, it's not that icon. 

On a Z3 or BlackBerry10 model, the charging symbol is slightly different, with the yellow electical lightning bolt just the right of the battery icon.
