RIM Lists New Features In BIS 2.5

All of you BIS users rejoice. BIS 2.5 is almost upon us and RIM has released the full feature list for the latest update. Many of these features requires OS 4.5 along with BIS 2.5 so don’t get your hopes up so fast… Thanks Josep for the tip!

In a nutshell:

  • Attachment downloading in the native file format
  • HTML email message viewing
  • Support for Windows Live Hotmail integration

Sadly there are quite a few caveats. For example external images will have to be loaded using the menu button. Not all carriers will support Windows Live push email. You will have to reactivate windows live push every 90 days. read the full details at this link on RIM’s Knowledge base.

  1. Is BIS worth having on a BB, I have unlimited internet and stuff, but is the email system really that fast and efficient?

  2. Hi Randy,
    BIS email works great. Apart from the couple of outages recently, everything is v quick and efficient.
    Big Fan…

  3. @Randy:
    ALL Blackberry smartphones are either BIS or BES. Unless you are paying the premium for BES access (or using a company supplied berry), you already HAVE BIS. It’s not something you pay extra to have like BES is, having a data plan for a Blackberry (at least here in the USA with all providers I know of) means you have BIS.

  4. Well I have T-mobile and I have a choice of activating BIS on the blackberry because I dont have a tmobile blackberry email address. It was saying on my online account if I want to activate it I have to sign up to terms and agreement. Honestly I know I don’t have it on my phone because Im paying for the regular tmobile internet which is like 20 bucks a month. I mean does anybody who has tmobile concur with that?

  5. Yo, I have tmobile and I pay $20 a month for BIS, I get unlimited everything except calling.

  6. Well then I got suckered into the unlimited regular tmobile internet i have to wait like 3 more months before I can disable that and add on the tmo BIS plan to my regular package. Thanks joey.
