Default trouble with hotmail email account

Please Login to Remove!

hi guys!

im sure this has been brought up loads of times but im having trouble getting my emails to my blackberry pearl 8210. im aware that hotmail wont send emails to blackberrys without upgrading to hotmail plus account. i cant find the hotmail plus site to upgrade anywhere, so if anyone knows the site then that will be appreciated. or if anyone knows of an email server that hotmail will send emails to so that i can pick the emails up from there then that will be my best option!

any imput will be appreciated

Welcome to the BBForums.

1. BIS 2.5 will allow Hotmail now. While Hotmail is not the most dependable email on the Blackberry, you can follow the link here to perform the upgrade.
How to enable HTML email on your BlackBerry
While that article focuses on enabling HTML on your BB, it will also get Hotmail to work.

For a Hotmail Plus link... I googled it, and this was my first choice:
Windows Live Hotmail Plus

Did you just do that? Is it working?

I am pretty sure Orange has upgraded to the BIS 2.5. You can delete your service books on the BB (options > Advanced > Service Books -- delete those items with the @ email address; then go to your carrier BIS website and resend the service books).

Using HotMail Plus, you won't have a problem. Keep it like it is and don't worry about service books.
