Default Transferring to a Nokia E61 from a bberry and a phone

Please Login to Remove!

I currently have a blackbery and a nokia 9300.

blackberry is great but now the e61 is out i thought i could combine the 2.

my phone is on o2 and therefore my e61 will be
my blackberry is currently on t-mobile

is it easy to take my emails and send/receive them on my e61? everyone seems to be saying that the blackberry is better?

please let me know. i can see that it's easy to set up a pop3 email account but it looks as if you have to connect to download - obviously with the blackberry application i dont want to have to connect?
let me know if this is easy and if so how do i do it?

I considered the E61 so I went to one of those import stores that sold flashy phones that weren't carrier supported. I liked the fact that the E61 offered expandable memory and wifi (2 things I wish my BlackBerry did) but after doing some research I passed on the E61. I found out that BlackBerry connect is for email only and does not offer pinning which is something my office uses quite often. I tried sending an email or two from the store owner (who was a E61 user) from his email to my BlackBerry and I didn't like the keys on the E61 and I wasn't a fan of the joystick. I found it uncomfortable. I am not well experienced with the E61 but my brief time with it made me realize nothing beats a BlackBerry for email and if I want things like expandable memory I'll just have to wait for the next generation of BlackBerries. If you opt for the E61 setting up your email should be a breeze. The store owner I spoke to said it took him less than 15minutes to set up his email accounts and get his E61 up and running. If you're running BlackBerry connect then you should get your email right away.
