there is an option to push the books.

but lets take care of something else first.

when u owned the device, was it on a BES for your work?

because the only reason why it would avoid a personal email setup from what i know is if it is still linked to the BES and the IT guy blocked access to personal accounts.


so, was the device ever used for a work BES?

Sounds like the BlackBerry Data Plan isn't properly set up on the device. A call to the carrier is in order.
