I have the Cingular BLACKBERRY CONNECT UNL plan. Does that entitle me to an email address thru the BB network? If so, do I set it up thru the email setup icon or the BB browser? Also, what info do they need to ID me, such as PIN, PW, etc? Thanks.

Set up your BB e-mail address via the "Setup Internet E-Mail" icon...

I thought BlackBerry Connect was a software application for non-BB phones.

Do you mean the "Personal Email Setup" icon?

Cingular's web site says that BlackBerry Connect is only for the Nokia E62, Treo 650, or Nokia 9300 to connect to BIS or BES.

That's interesting. I'm looking at my contract. Perhaps their website is not so up-to-date. They just added the 8100 Dec. 1.

If he has the Setup Internet E-Mail icon on his BB, and it shows EDGE in the upper right hand corner, he has the right plan.

For the 8100 they offer 'BlackBerry Personal', 'BlackBerry Corporate', and 'Blackberry Tethered'. The 'BlackBerry Connect' is for non-BB phones to have access to the BlackBerry email services.

They must have just told him that he was on BB Connect instead of BB Personal.

I believe the Setup Internet E-Mail icon is a service book pushed down when a connection is made. Of course, I may be wrong and he has the wrong plan on his account. Wouldn't be the first time!

Well, I tried to set up my email acct via the icon and was connected to the BB network. When I tried to sign up as a new user, it said this unit is already regestered (probably by the Cingular girl who sold me the unit). When I tried to log in I didn't know the acct name and p/w to use so I used my phone no. and that didn't work. It sounds like it should work when I know how to sign it.

Is this a new BlackBerry or was it used by someone before?

Then you have a BlackBerry Data Plan.
Call Customer Service and see if they can help you with the e-mail account setup.

BB Connect is only for non-BlackBerry phones. You may want to check that out, you don't to get any surprises later on your bill

Just to wrap up this thread, I was successful in getting my email address thru mycingular.blackberry.net. So it would appear that yes, BB connect now is for Blackberry phones, at least the 8100.
