Unhappy How to add a personal email address?I only have 1 option in the email setup Wizard

Please Login to Remove!

HELP! I've had my blackberry BOLD for few months now. but i still couldn't set up my email.

I went to the 'setup Wizard' -> Email Setup
and the only email setup option i got is
- I want to use a work email account with a Blackberry Enterprise Server.

But this won't allow me to add my personal email addres (hotmail).
Is there anything to do with internet connection? do u need to get a blackberry mobile internet/ email plan? as i'm using my WIFI at home to do that.

Do you have THE BlackBerry Data Plan? You must.

Once you get a bona fide BlackBerry Data Plan attached to your account you'll get the option to add a personal email account.

If you have access to a BES server, don't you need to have the BES administrator set you up with the access/permissions??

The lack of the PERSONAL email setup option is indicative of not having a BlackBerry Data Plan properly set up.
