Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
I am new to the forum & very new to blackberry.

Thanks to this site, I have already removed the previous IT policy on the phone i got from work when they upgraded....

Now...a little further help please!?

1)i want to use the BB for personal & want to set up hotmail...in the set up wizard it says about connecting to BES....do i want to do this?
2)i am on O2....get 600+ mins a month, unlimited text...& unlimited internet....do i need to do anything else to get the bb working fully?

thanls in advance all!!

Oh, and apologies if this has (no doubt) been answered loads before.....

It will not show you the option to setup personal email, until you get the blackberry bolt-on from O2
