Angry Stop Forwarding Emails

Please Login to Remove!

Hey Guys I'm Having Some Problems Here With My Bb Pearl. I Recently Went Abroad And Obviously I Knew I Was Roaming So I Did Not Check My Emails On My Pearl But I Just Got My Bill And They Charged Me For Every Single Email And Text That It Was Sent To Me While I Was Abroad Even Tho I Never Opened Them, Anyway I Have Been Trying To Turn That Feature Off And I Do Not Have The Option To Do It. I Go To Message, Options And Then All I Have Is General Option And Email Reconciliation....even On General Options It Doesn't Allow Me To Change Email Fowarding... Can You Guys Help Me To Solve This Issue.
Many Thanks
Izzy

Isn't there an icon that says "Turn Wireless Off" where you can disconnect your internet?

Yes, but that also turns off the phone.

The reason you were charged is because the emails were delivered to your BB regardless of whether or not you read them. You were probably not charged as much as if you had read them as some would have required [More] or [More All] to get the entire message.

The only way to "turn off" reception of email is to delete the associated service book(s) - [Desktop]xxx for BES and emailaddress[CMIME] for BIS - so that the BB can't receive them. Of course you then need to re-acquire the service books once you want to get your email.

Data Services: set to off
Your BB will work as a phone and you can send and receive text messages.

But you will have no e-mail or Internet until you turn it back on.

Please clarify with exact steps to do this.

In six years of using a BlackBerry, I haven't come across this setting.

maybe you can also create a message filter (in your BES or BIS) which prevents all emails from being sent to your bb. after you return you can delete this filter.

On *newer* versions of the OS (absoultely on 4.2), go to Options / Network
The very top line reads "Data Services"
It has two options - On and Off
It gives you the ability to shut off e-mail from the BB.

Since this posting is in the 8100 Forum, it will work.

Duhhh!

Nice call naabster!

Yes, it would be MUCH easier to simply turn off forwarding. This can be done on both the BIS web page as well as under Messages --> Options --> Email Filters for BES (I assume). Forwarding can certainly be turned off with Desktop Manager.

This would be much easier as you wouldn't need to reacquire the needed service books which is easy enough for BIS, but may require IT intervention for BES.

I've never seen this under Network, but I've also never been abroad and have been with AT&T/Cingular for all my BB's.

With Cingular/US you currently can not change the Network setting at all, although I do know this changes if you get an International account.

Yes, Cingular is different. We've swapped a lot of SIM cards in order to make Network functionality work better.

It is front and center on the 8100 so it is a viable solution for the OP.
