IS BIS Enabled Required in Old BlackBerry SmartPhones in India

Hi,

 

I have doubt , I am using bsnl service provider in india for 9700 device,Does it require BIS Enabled SIM or should it work like BB 10 devices with normal internet pack.

 

Can anyone clear it.

 

 

Thanks

Hello,

Legacy devices, including the 9700, require a proper BIS plan in order to have any BB proprietary services (BBM, email, native browser, BB Protect, etc.).

Good luck!
