Are you doing it from the setup wizard on the blackberry device, or on website from computer?

It shouldn't make a difference, unless right now there is some sort of glitch. Try the other alternative from what you are doing now and see.

Do you have special characters in your password? Some characters don't work.

Do you have Yahoo Plus account? My friend you need to upgrade to Yahoo plus account. If you are using Yahoo free account then you will not be provisioned POP3 services; which are required for fetching emails on Blackberry or Outlook. Gmail and Hotmail are providing POP3 services for free.

You have to pay $20 to upgrade to Yahoo plus account. If you want to save money then I am afraid you have to have gmail or hotmail configured on your BB Device.

You do NOT need to pay to get your yahoo mail on your phone.

MidnightDraven I think you don't know about Yahoo Plus or you already have got your Yahoo Plus account. Yahoo don't allow POP3 for free users.
Please read this, if you don't believe me :

You definitely do NOT need a plus account.

Double check that you're entering your email address and password accurately.

shahzadk007, I believe the info in the link that you provided, is only if you want to use a 3rd party email client. It doesn't apply to BlackBerry.

shahzadk007, you are absolutely incorrect as it applies to Yahoo Mail on BlackBerry.

You do NOT have to have a Yahoo Plus account in order to have your Yahoo Mail pushed to your BlackBerry through the BIS. Unequivocally.

If you are sure address and password are correct, your country must be on the list of countries for which Yahoo does not provide push email service.
You can't do anything about it.

I get my Yahoo just fine on my phone and I don't pay nothing. Don't listen to that nonsense.
