| | Newbie question about email usage
Please Login to Remove!
I am planning to get a blackberry 8800 soon, which will be my first blackberry. My problem is that, I will be traveling to Europe quite a lot (will be using pre-paid SIM cards from local providers there), and I am a bit hesitant about the e-mail service...
From what I can understand, Cingular has a Blackberry Enterprise Server which pushes "new" email onto these devices, and this gets activated when you sign-up for the data service from Cingular. But, what happens when you go to Europe? As you won't be on the Cingular network anymore, your email won't get pushed? And, what happens if you discontinue your service with Cingular?
Also, is it possible to install an email client that supports regular protocols like POP3 / IMAP / SMTP?
In summary, can someone please explain technical aspects as to how the email service works on it?
