Default BIS question

Please Login to Remove!

I just recently got a Curve 8330 and was wondering if I should create a user name? When you go to email settings it says create user name, but after I click it says I will have to sign in with that name and password every time I want to access the BIS service.

I am able to browse the web and receive my emails, so I was just wondering what the benefits would be to do this?

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

The password prevents someone from accessing your e-mail accounts on your blackberry.

Also, you can change you email settings from your PC, filter messages by e-mail account, and most importantly, get rid of that annoying "Sent from my xxx Blackberry" tagline that your carrier will insert to let everyone know that you responded from your 8330. These things can only be done from a created account.
