Default Reviving the email options T-mob 8320

Please Login to Remove!

Need help from you old pros. I purchased a T-mobile 8320. I am about to get it unlocked so I can use it with my Orange provider in Israel. I have a data plan.
The problem is that T-mobile locks out the option of adding email accounts if you dont buy their data plan (you still have the option of using a server - but you dont even see an option to add seperate POP accounts (this option appears in the manuals)
Can someone please tell me how to revive the add email option so I can use my new Curve in Israel.
Many thanks for your help !!

Maybe someone reads your question differently than I, but if you are talking about BIS, tmobile isn't locking out anything. You must purchase the blackberry data plan to gain the BIS email service. It must be a blackberry data plan, not the generic carrier's phone data service. Assuming orange provides blackberry service, you will need to purchase the service from them when you activate the blackberry on their network.
