Default Stupid email question

Please Login to Remove!

Can I set POP3 account on the phone? I am going to Israel in 2 weeks, the local phone carrier just told me they do not support emails/blackberry. I can only use it as POP3 account. What can I do?
that will kill me, since I have to be on line with my emails all the time.

OK, I am finally getting some answers...now they tell me that if I have ENT services, I will be able to use the blackberry within their system. Which of course I don't..LOL.
Who offers Ent. services on a monthly basis? and will that solve my problems?
Please help.

Did they say BlackBerry Enterprise Service? I personally don't know what ENT service is--never heard of it for a BB.

Have you taken this up with Sprint? It will depend on the services they offer while roaming in Israel.

That will be way too expensive..I will be there for three months. I rather get a local SIM card in ISrael with local number..much cheaper

Ok...Understood - I assume you have another device? I dont believe that any sprint phones use a sim card? I had the same problem in China. If you cannot find a service provider that supports BB data you may want to check and see if any european carriers have a decent roaming agreement and cover BB data.

By the way - T Mobile offers unlimited international BB roaming for $20 / month add on (if you already have a phone and plan) That was a factor when I changed carriers. If you really need your emails for 3 months you may want to look at "free-mobile" as the competition refers to them.
