May be a stupid question . . .

but I can't seem to get a straight answer on exactly what BIS includes.  So can anyone tell me, if I have a blackberry without BIS, what functionality will I lose ???   I know I don't get the push email, but do I lose anything else ??

Re: May be a stupid question . . .

If you don't have BIS or any BlackBerry services then only basic GSM features will work in your handheld like, voice call and SMS send and receive. You not be able to browse internet even after having unlimited data plan.
