NEW bold tomorrow and need pre purchase advice


Hi Everyone,

just new here and need some help please.


I am purchasing a Blackberry Bold 9000 tomorrow and need a couple of things cleared up.




1 - Can I disable the data component of the phone as I will for now only be voice calling and smsing my wife?


2 - I use a pop email account my isp gave me. I seem to be confused that to check my pop email account i have had for many years i have to synch with some Blackberry service? What i need to know is that can i just setup my existing pop email account on the BB by putting in the account username/password and incoming and outgoing mail settings eg: pop/smtp or is the ONLY way I can check my emails by going through this BB service.

The reason i ask is that i have access to many wifi access points in our city and if i drove past one i could pull over and check my pop email account without having to go home and check on pc or psy big $$$ and use the phone data system. Same as checking email on your laptop.......by having account settings in it.


Thanks


forgive the confusing questions
