Default New user - few questions

Please Login to Remove!

First off - hi! Just got my first Blackberry handset on Vodafone in the UK. Really enjoying using it but have a few questions.
Firstly, Enterprise Activation - what on Earth is it? When I first got my handset I played around a bit and it disappeared. Then when I switched my phone back on it reappeared and I cant find out how to remove it. I may be a bit thick but I cant seem to input anything to make it go away from the main page. I am not using it as part of my business and just want it to retreive emails from certain accounts, so does anyone know how I set it up? Also, should I have more options from the Email settings on the hanset than just 2?
Secondly, I set it up for an email account I have and it doesnt seem to get the messages for me. They come through to the computer but not the handset - again I cant understand why. Without this feature the email facility isnt as useful to me as it could be,
Finally, is there a good free RSS reader anywhere?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Enterprise Activation is only used if you're in a corporate environment with a Blackberry Enterprise Server, which is sounds like you're not. You can hide this (or any other of the icons from the home screen) by selecting an icon, holding down the key and then pushing in the scroll wheel. This will pop up a menu that will allow you to move and/or hide icons, so simply select "Hide Icon" and it should be hidden.

If you're not using a BES or a Microsoft Exchange server for your e-mail, you need to either have your mail forwarded to your Blackberry (using your @<carrier>.blackberry.net address), or you need to set up your Blackberry Web Client to retrieve mail from your other mail accounts. To do this you have to log on to a web page provided by your carrier (which you normally get from your carrier, but the link might be around here somewhere if you search the forums).

If you forward your mail to your blackberry.net address (which would have to be set up from your e-mail provider) then the delivery will be instantaneous. Setting up your BWC/BIS to retrieve your mail will result in a delay of up to 15 minutes before your mail shows up on your device, since it only checks every 15 minutes.

I'd recommend checking out Mark Rehjon's excellent FAQ here on the forums for more information on this and whole bunch of other frequently asked questions.
