Thinking about switching to Koodo prepaid service; currently I have a blackberry Bold 9900 unlocked (Rogers), and my current smart phone data plan works well on the Rogers network (Not the BB data), just wondering if anyone know if the prepaid booster data will work on Bold 9900? I know the Q&A section showing NO for blackberry Curve 3G, but I tried Rogers/Telus/T-Mobile smartphone data on my 9900, all worked. Thanks in advance.

No. Prepaid data will not work with ANY pre BB-10 Blackberry.

I've popped many foreign sim cards (no BIS) into BB 6 & 7 devices and data services always worked. No BIS services of course, like push email or BBM, but every thing else like facebook, BB Maps, Browser, had no issues.

"NOT HERE IN CANADA?" That is interesting, as I mentioned earlier, I am currenlty on Rogers smartphone data plan and all NON-BIS services are working on 3G (Internet, 3rd party email client and google map). Same for Telus and T Mobile (tried both with my 9900 and smartphone data).

Anyway, I think I will just go and pick up a Koodo paug sim card next month and give it a try, if it doesn't work on my bold 9900, I will use it in my old iPhone 4.

Maybe it doesn't work with Koodo, the Koodo employees around here seem pretty adamant it won't work, perhaps they're doing something different then all the other carriers.

Hi Peter, Timo is right! Data is not available on a BlackBerry with our prepaid service: http://koo.do/QpRJnK. It would work on Wi-Fi though! Thanks!

Yes, because it isn't a blackberry.

Everything except BlackBerry 7 and older. BB 10 OS is fine.
