Question turning off email receive and send on holiday

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all

I want to be able to use my 7100t just as a phone/voicemail/text when I'm on hols - don't want to receive email then. I asked T-mobile how to do this and they said to turn off the wireless - which means I can't do anything!!

Has anyone any idea how I can set it to receive/not receive email byt stll be able to use it as a phone. What would happen if I just took out the sim card and put it in an ordinary mobile for a week or so? Would I be able to replace it in my blackberry without a problem?

I would go to the BIS and turn off all forwarding of e-mail via filters until you get back.

Not sure why you want to "turn-off" the send/receive, but if you are a BIS type, then KonTiki idea is probably your best bet, if you are a BES user, then I don't know if you can ask your admin to turn it off when you are out of the office.

Are you concerned about roaming charges while on vacation?

I know you can turn-off the "send", but that is a personal choice You could also choice to just not go into the mail folder or hide the mail folder so you can't see it.

Maybe you just need to tell your boss you left it at home

You can probably take your sim card and put it in an old cellphone you have laying around the house.

in email filters-> change "if no filters apply, send email to handheld" to "no"

or

in email reconciliation-> turn wireless reconcile to "off"

I agree with asianmaze.On holiday (and weekends!)I want to receive sms but not email.Ideally I would like messages to only display sms .I know you can use shortcut to do this temporarily but it defaults to all messages when you exit.Is there any way ???And are we the only ones who want this functionality?

Could you not select the "phone only" profile in order to accomplish this?

A big thank you to Francois - how easy is that! I'm very impressed.

For those of you who want to know why I don't want emails on hols - it's because I run a micro business and pay someone to answer emails when I'm away - otherwise I'd be constantly responding to clients.

All the phone only profile does is mute all sounds apart from phone calls. It has no effect on message receiving.

I know this is dumb - but what is the BIS?

Default This is how to stop those pesky emails on holiday

Hi all

Have tried Francois' solution - which seemed v logical - but doesn't work on my system. So I want to try Kontiki's solution (now I understand what the BIS is) but how do I get to the BIS? I really am sorry for sounding so dumb - but this is a whole new world for me. Thanks for all help received so far - I am getting there!

I wrote that in January and since then have received several, useless solutions from T-mobile. So...taking on Kontiki's ideas and developing them a bit... what I do now is go to the Blackberry server and simply remove my email address as one of the ones it polls. Which works a treat. When I come back I just add it again.
