The person you spoke with at your local cable office basically lied to you. There are multiple ways for you to get your roadrunner email to a blackberry device. Setting the device up to receive such email is rather simple, and even easier to do through the blackberry web site rather than the handset itself.
You have to provide the settings for the BIS to actually connect:
Email address: your_email @ your_area.rr.com(can't post email addresses yet take out the spaces)
User Name: your_email (first part of your email address before the @ symbol)
Incoming mail server : pop-server.your_area.rr.com
Outgoing mail server : smtp-server.your_area.rr.com
They haven't as of yet blocked RIM's IP address from accessing their servers so if you use BIS you shouldn't have any problems accessing your email.
