Hi everyone,
I am pretty new to the whole blackberry thing and i have aproblem.I just bought a t-mobile branded 8900 which is unlocked from the usa.I am based in the netherlands and the unlock works fine.I only have a problem.I can't seem to setup my e-mail.in the setup wizard i choose setup email,but only see the "i want to use a work email account with a blackberry enterprise server".There are no other options.I want to add 3 accounts and get the e-mail via gprs.Is there anyway to do this.If not ,does flashing the firmware help ?Will this lock the phone again /(flashing).Also i would like to get a screen in the beginning showing all my appointments.Where can i get those.
Sorry for all the questions but i am new to this.Hope you understand.
I appreciate your help.

Stefan

You seem to be lacking a BlackBerry data plan, which is required to setup email on the device. Call your carrier and ask them to add it.

I had a data plan and the email settings only showed BES setup.
I went to the carrier's BIS site and added the email addresses there.

Did you purchase new or used?

Are you receiving email via BIS now?
