Verizon has no way to "activate" the BIS.
I take it your not in the USA, and with a Verizon device on another carriers network is never guaranteed to have full functionality. you may be able to talk and text. Blackberry may be the better place to look to find an answer to you issue.

You can set up BIS yourself.
