I get this text from Tmo today sending me a link to a video by Tmo exec Legere. Among the info mentioned about the new "uncarrier" scheme, I noticed they are saying people can use Blackberry (BIS, I assume) on their new no-contract plans without extra charge.

At least, I'm pretty sure that's what it said.

Just in case anyone here is interested in their new devices.

I got by pretty well with a BB in the past here in the boonies when EDGE was the fastest thing Tmo had. I think the pre-digested data coming from BB's server is probably still a good alternative to folks in the hinterlands with scant access to fast data service.
