Hi there so I was thinking about switching to Koodo however I need to know if Koodo supports Blackberry devices that require specific plans. I am wanting to buy a Blackberry Bold 9900 (Unlocked) online but I heard that the plan needs to be set up according to the device. Does Koodo support this phone and a plan that will allow me to use BBM, app world, etc...???

P.S. I think the plan option I am thinking of is called BIS (Blackberry Internet Service).

Okay so if I right now decided I am going to buy a BB Bold 9900 unlocked (I am probably going to wait a bit to see if I can fix my current phone or not) and then switch over to Koodo once I got it I can get a plan that works then... Sounds good.

Oh just a heads up, BIS isn't available for prepaid. Also the bold you buy needs to be compatible with the frequencies koodo uses. Not every bold is the same.

Koodo uses 3G/Umts/hspa 850/1900 mhz bands. They do not have a 2G GSM network.
