First off, I was very impressed b/c I got this thing the next day from when I ordered it.
Secondly, NEXTEL CS sucks. They know absolutely nothing about the BB. I told them that I wanted to use my i860 sim in the BB and they said it would void the warranty, and wouldn't work correctly. So I had them add the BB plan to it anyhow.
I got my contacts from my i860 transferred over but I can't get email up and running. I set up an account on Blackberry Web Client.
I cannot get either my work account or Yahoo mail connected to the BB, and Iv'e read thru a ton of post and still can't figure it out.
When I installed the BB software on my work PC, I used the BES option. Here at work, they have a BES, but they have BBs thru Verizon or Cingular, I forget which one. Anyhow, I get the following in my work email :
This message is used to carry data between the BlackBerry Handheld and an associated server. Please do not delete, move or respond to this message - it will be processed by the server.
It had a file ETP.dat, attached to it. It was from "firstname.lastname@example.org"
What do I have to do so that I can have the BES transfer my work email to my PC? Will this happen automatically? What's up with this message?
Also, how do I get my yahoo email to go to my BB? Do I really have to "enable POP" on my yahoo account? That's like a $20 / year fee. Is there any other way?
