This has to be done whenever you want to receive a file via bluetooth.

> In reply to wonder why? @ 2009-12-04 17:21 from v3Bt - click to readYo! Wonder boy.. u forgot to wear you glasses on before reading reviews again eh?? I said 'people think BB Curve 8530 'LOOKS CHEAP' than E71 or any other costly phone out there' - GET MY POINT?

Also... I agree with those 'people' BB Curve 8520 is no comparison to looks n feel of E71. I have owned and used a nokia E71 so I def. agree... As for the price E71 is now priced at BB Curve 8520. When it was launced in your 'lovely country' I am sure it was as expensive as 1800-1900 RM

> In reply to JRF @ 2009-12-07 07:45 from 4fLF - click to readI would like believe that it should work. Since BIS is network operated and dependent. Also if the BB Bold that you are buying is an unlocked version (not bound to any specific operator) then there is absolutely no reason why it should not work.

Also you can have a quick dry run of your friends BB Bold by inserting your SIM into it and checking for your BIS services and activation. I am sure that's a time consuming procedure and a full proof one.

If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it, see, my question is if I already have BIS on my sim card with my messenger, pin, personal and blackberry email accounts activated, can these be used on a different BB device?
See, a friend is selling his Bold and I want to buy it but I need to know if I'll be able to use the BIS service from my Gemini on it. Thanks people!
