Default No option to set hotmail/gmail; only enterprise accounts

Please Login to Remove!

Have a blackberry 9220, which has been configured now to be on wifi. Tried using setting option to setup my hotmail account but find option to get enterprise account only. Had bought the phone directly fron Nokia store and service provider will not assist as haven't taken any data package.
Could someone kindly assist on procedure to get hotmail configured as would use wifi at home only.

A BlackBerry needs a BlackBerry data plan to use the BlackBerry services provided by RIM, including the native email app. You don't have that. It won't work on wifi, either, without the data plan.

In order to configure an e-mail account you MUST purchase a BlackBerry Data Plan from your carrier. There is no workaround for this - you have to have a BlackBerry specific data plan in order to get e-mail.

The minute you have a legit BlackBerry data plan active on your account you will get the option to set up personal email.
