Default email question

Please Login to Remove!

i just got my new storm with bell (canada). i have an internet connextion but no data plan.
the way i did my setup for hotmail is that each time i got an email on hotmail, i receive a notification via text message, then i go to hotmail via my storm to read it.

is there a way to receive the emails directely without having the data plan??

thank s

Nope. You must have a BB data plan for push email.

From our FAQ:
