Is there a way to set up an email account so I can send emails from my BB but that the BB doesn't automatically download new messages?

I'd like to be able to do email when I want to, but I don't want to be bothered with email every 10 minutes.

You could probably set up a filter but that would block incoming mail I think.

You could always ignore the incoming mail.

You can turn off forwarding to your phone via your BIS site. Not sure if it's exactly the same with USCellular, but they should have something similar. See the attached screenshot (T-Mobile example).

Just turn off the notification so you don't get bothered so often. The whole reason for getting a Blackberry is to stay connected. It kinda defeats the purpose of the device.

Can you tell me any more about this BIS site? I've never heard of it.

I checked the US Cellular website but I didn't see anything that jumped out at me, though I don't really know what I'm looking for either.

The BIS sites are carrier specific, and I *think* yours is here: BlackBerry Internet Service

As far as creating an account there, I couldn't tell you. You may want to give US Cellular a call.
