Smile Blackberry Virgin - Help!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
I'm about to get a blackberry, and would like it so that my yahoo and hotmail emails can be accessed via I think it's the blackberry mail (where you just get a ding noice and a little envelope on your main screen when you get a new email) rather than having to go onto the internet to do it.
Could you please tell me if this is possible, and if so how do I set it up! Both my accounts are personal accounts.
Also, what is this phone like? Is it nice to use?
Anything I should know about Blackberrys before I join the revolution??
Cheers guys!

Yes, it's possible to get up to 10 different email accounts delivered to your device. You'll need to subscribe to a Blackberry Data Plan from your provider, though.

It depends. Where are you going to use it? If its the US, then "v" is GPRS only. If its Europe, then probably the "v" because it is 3G. But it really depends on your usage, where you plan to use it and what you need the device to do. You are the only one who can determine "better".
