    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Unless you pay for the hotmail "plus", you can NOT use hotmail with BIS (the service which makes email on your BlackBerry possible). This is solely a limitation of hotmail.

    However, in lieu of paying for hotmail, you could use your BlackBerry browser to surf to hotmail and use it as webmail. Definitely not ideal.

    I recommend abandoning hotmail in favour of BlackBerry friendly freemail services such as Yahoo and Gmail.

    I know there has been discussion about this before. I use FREE hotmail on my BB, with no problems. I have it pushed via the BIS too. Maybe because I am a CINGULAR user?

    No Hotmail (free or premium) on Pearl on T-Mo US, end of story.

    I think it may partially depend on when you signed up for hotmail as well. There was a time when hotmail offered POP3. But I haven't used hotmail in nearly 5 years, so I'm no expert on that.

    Well. Maybe so, considering I've had that email since before MS owned it...bout 10 years. That's why I'm so stubborn about giving it up.

    Yes, has to be at least a pop3 account before using it with a BIS account. IF, anyone has a pop3 account(such as Gmail and Yahoo) let me know. I'll gladly get you set up! If I can't, I'll pass you on to N8!
