BB 10 - BIS

[ Edited ]

I think many will agree with me:


- BB without BIS is not BB

- BB should implement BIS option in 10 OS

- I hear 100% complains about this,

- BB is known about BIS and reliability in delivering email/calendar/contacst and it was/should be again business phone

- BB is not that in 10 OS - probably huge loss of market share is ahead if this is not addressed....


Please reconsider business strategy. 


Kind regards,

Re: BB 10 - BIS


Other than you stating "100%", I would have moved along and not replied. But, I will provide you a reason that 100% is not correct.

Here in the USA, BIS plans can cost substantially more than non-BIS plans, and have limits on their data usage. I realize this is different in other markets, but that is how it is in this region. Non-BIS plans can be obtained for significantly less.

Example...the least cost BIS plan I could recently find was US$50 per month, with a limit of 250MB, with substantial penalties for exceeding. For BB10, a non-BIS plan can be obtained for US$30 per month, and with truly unlimited data (5GB at 4G, 3G thereafter, but still unlimited).

So, 100% complaints is what you may have heard to this point...but now you must reduce that, since you have now heard from me.

Good luck!
