Account Setup

To begin creating your BlackBerry Service account, type your device details below.

Device PIN: xxxxxxxx
Device IMEI:355986xxxxxxxx1


To find your PIN perform one of the following actions:

* In the BlackBerry device options or settings, click Status.
* Look for the PIN and IMEI information on the outside of the box that your BlackBerry device or BlackBerry-enabled device came in.
* Turn the BlackBerry device off and remove the battery. Look for the sticker on the BlackBerry device with the PIN information where the battery
is usually located.

HIT THE CONTINUE BUTTON AND YOU GET.........

CANNOT CREATE ACCOUNT

This BlackBerry(R) device is not registered with your wireless service provider.
Please register this device and verify that the URL of the current web site matches
the one provided by your wireless service provider.

To register:

1. In the Application list on your device, click Options, or click Settings Options.

2. Click Advanced Options > Host Routing Table. (THIS IS NOT IN THE MENUS)

3. Click the Menu key and click Register Now. (THIS IS NOT IN THE MENUS)

If the error persists, contact your wireless service provider.


ALSO TRIED TO UPGRADE THE SOFTWARE VIA OFFICIAL SITE AS ANY SUGGESTIONS HERE WERE NOT COMPATABLE WITH DEVICE.

IT DEMANDS I SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLACKBERRY SERVICE (AT COST) JUST TO GAIN THE LATEST VERSION !!!! xxxxING RIPP OFF


SO IF ANYONE WANTS A NEW FONE MAIL ME OR I WILL PUT IT ON EBAY AS I AM GOING TO USE MY HTC HERO.....MUCH MUCH EASIER AND SIMPLER FONE

Yes. You must have a blackberry data plan to get push email.
And yes, you need a blakcberry data plan to upgrade to OS 5.

But you should have had a blackberry data plan from the beginning if you wanted to use email on a blackberry.

thats rather strange with an 8520. it was a pretty simple device for me to configure.usually if you just open your browser on your bb and go to google(this must be done from your phone)and you will see www.m.google.com its a mobile google search engine and you can download mobile google,google maps,and gmail pretty seamlessly

Curveman, the OP does not have a data plan, that is why they are encountering these problems and therefore not being able to set up the way it worked for you.
