Default How do I acquire the @blackberry.net email account?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all. This is my first post and my first blackberry. I am the proud owner of a 7100t (unlocked) using my at&t sim. My question is how do I get my blackberry email setup? Do I need to have the Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) in order to get my email (user@blackberry.net) setup? Thank you guys in advance.

You actually have to get setup with a data package from you service provider, in your case ATT. I believe that is the only way.

I was in the same boat as you. I called Cingular, and asked them to assign my PIN/IMEI number to thier network and then I got the @blackberry.net account.

When you trade a sim card from a phone only device to a blackberry you have call and get the data pkg added. They won't let you slide and get away with anything for free, I don't know about ATT but make sure you get a unlimited plan because one site can put you well over your limit if not or one attachment within a email.

Thanks guys for your quick response. Now get this. I am an employee so I receive free data and unlimited text as well as minutes. I am currently set up with the appropriate RIM PDP and Blackberry features which allow browser capabilites on my device. Now if I did indeed have the data plan working how would I go about setting up the email? Do I have to register into a website via my BB or is this something that is done locally on the device through settings?

Actually you have to set it up from your desktop or through Customer Care. If you're fully set up then you should have a login and username, if not you will have to call and have ATT set you up. I know Nextel allows you to create a new account but ATT's BWC doesn't allow you to do this from there site. Here is the site address:

Hope this helps!

It means the number of (1) waiting what ever the icon is. Square could be email, SMS, MMS (depending on regular square, slanted square or symbol in the middle), or it could be a smiley face which is a message waiting on one of the chat programs (BB Messenger, GoogleTalk, Yahoo...). You could also see a 1 and an icon for voicemail.
