Over here I had to subscribe to the Hotmail premium service,popped my details into the BIS and it worked.

Yahoo and Hotmail require their Plus services to be able to forward mail to a mobile device.

I have plus services on both and when I had a T-Mo bb, i was told by T-Mo's tech support that they didn't support Hotmail.

Does anyone actually have it working on T-Mo?

Not using Hotmail directly. If you can poll using another source and integrate that then yes (Example: AOL can retrieve mail from other sources. AOL retrieves from Hotmail. AOL is integrated. You'll get your Hotmail through AOL.) Premium service or not T-Mobile + Hotmail = No.

The definitive answer is YES!!!

You can do this but you have to subscribed to Hotmails premium service which gives you the ability to use POP3 to retrieve the mail.
I think this is a bit of a rip off and would suggest moving to yahoo mail which has a far better interface and is free

i think that using the BB and yahoo regular free account is a new thing.
you no longer need the yahoo plus to be able to get your yahoo mail on the BB

Calm down, man. Using all caps isn't gonna get you an answer any quicker.

Sounds like your question's been answered, but can I ask why you're still using hotmail? Most of my friends who used to have a Hotmail account switched to Gmail a long time ago. Make the switch! You won't regret it. ;)

Pay for POP with Hotmail (yuck) or use GoogleTalk and Gmail for FREE (yup) :) :)

The answer is no - T-Mobile does not allow you to use Hotmail or MSN even if your paying for POP access

If you have another carrier and pay for POP access then yes - you can add it

if you're using T-Mobile and have got this working your exremly lucky and don't tell T-Mobile ;)

I use T-Mobile in the UK and pick up Hotmail via Hotmail Plus without a problem.

i use both hotmail and gmail but ive had hotmail so long that i dont have to pay to use it in outlook and all of the sites that i got to that need sign in info is my email so i just dont want to go to every single site and change the hotmail email to the gmail one.

Heres a trick to getting your hotmail to work with outlook without paying, first sign up or upgrade your hotmail account to the plan thats 19.95 a month then set it up in outlook then go back to hotmail and switch back to the free account (you get a refund if you cancel within a month) after you get your refund and then have the free account, hotmail still works in outlook.

If we get this excited about this, what happens when something really dire happens?

Must just be T-Mobile in the USA that doesn't allow it then

Please don't use all-caps. I know you're agitated, but it isn't going to make people want to help...

I've edited the topic to tone it down...
