Default Yahoo on Cingular 8700c

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, so once RIM's integration of Yahoo's services on the BB is complete, will my Free e-mail account push seamlessly to my BB, or will I have to purchase Yahoo's POP version of email in order for that to work?

Thanks for any comments.

I have consistently been told that it will. The BIS 2 instructions in the RIM tech resource docs suggest that it covers POP and Yahoo proprietary integration protocol. I know on TM it works on the free accounts.

The new RIM BIS service works with the free Yahoo! Email accounts. So no need to upgrade unless you want some of the other added features of Yahoo!Mail+

Now if they let us use the YAHOO messenger also, it will be a complete package.

The following is the information I found on Yahoo's web site under Mobile. It is only for T-Mobile at this time.

Yahoo! Mail

It's an easy, one-time set up to get your Yahoo! Mail on your device. Get started now if you're on T-Mobile (US). If you're with another carrier, stay tuned, it will be rolling out shortly.

Based on the Verizon thread, I am concerned about BIS 2.0 and the filing of messages. There may not be message reconciliation when it's moved to folders. That would be a step backwards since you would still need to log into the Yahoo account. I guess we will see.
