Default Receive hotmail

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all..

Is it possible for me to receive my emails (hotmail) on my blackberry? I can only set-up a BES mail in my menu?.. I believe I need hotmail premium, that's no problem. The point is how to receive it directly on my mobile..


Thanks in advance.



ps; I own an curve 8520

Do you have a BB dataplan?

Please use the SEARCH function and see what you find. It has been covered before. In the past Hotmail Premium was required. Not sure if that is still the case or not since I don't use it.

I do.. I have sent/received MMS and I can browse freely. So yes, I have data. But I'm not sure if I have the [s]BB[/s] data plan. Is there a simple way to test that?



I will use search agian, thanks.

As Dubdub stated, the Premium Hotmail account is no longer needed. I use Hotmail without issue. However, again, as Dubdub stated, you will need a BlackBerry data plan. You will need to contact your carrier to determine if you have the correct plan provisioned on your account.

Hmm.. KPN told me today I have NOT subscribed for BIS (damn) but for BB Surf & Mail.. Guess this means I have no BB dataplan, maybe this explains why some 3rd party softwares aren't working.

Thanks for you quick replies
