Default Need help setting up Bold please

Please Login to Remove!

OK, I've got a Curve and am relatively new to Blackberrys (I've been using it about a month).

To make a long story short my sis-in-law needs me to set up her Bold while her husband is in the hospital (been there for a month). She's getting a Bold as she needs to stay in touch with a lot of people right now and keep a calendar, e-mail, etc... She's coming from a very basic cell phone. She's on ATT service.

Here's what she has now for info:
- Yahoo contacts
- Yahoo calendar
- Yahoo mail

Can she synch the Bold to Yahoo services only, or does she need a mail client like Outlook?

She does not need an interface like Outlook. Click the "Manage Internet E-mail" iocn on the device, it will step through everything you need to get set up to sync wth the Yahoo functions.
1st Step in Troubleshooting: Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan?
2nd Step in Troubleshooting: Pull the Battery.

Wirelessly posted (VZW Storm, ATT Bold)

I don't believe that will sync her contacts or her calendar though. I've been wrong in the past but I think she will need something like outlook to sync those. There is an app for yahoo and I know of a google sync bu tNot yahoo
