Do you have a data plan with AT&T. You will need this so you can receive email directly to your BB. Then you need to login to your Carrier's BIS site and set up your email accounts.

You need a BB data plan from ATT. An ordinary MediaNet plan will not work for BB email. mWhen you get that, ATT will provision it, send the proper service books and set up your BIS account. Then you can set up email.
