    no not possible as of yet. microsoft and RIM are competitors so I doubt they will have hotmail (push) on bb's anytime soon...yahoo, gmail and the like will work. Hotmail is the only one out of the major e-mail providers that you cant gain access to through a bb

    no prob, the only way you can get hotmail on your bb (push0 is if you upgrade to windows live (or whatever its called) but there is a monthly fee for that (19.95 i think). there are some 3rd party apps who provide push service for hotmail. Im not sure whether they are free or not, off the top of my head I know of flurry, www.flurry.com

    Re: Hotmail email account cannot be added to Pearl?

    I have msn mail, which is pretty much hotmail, I check it at hotmail.com
    It works fine on my pearl, I am on cingular.
    When I bought the phone they offered to set up my e-mail for me so I just let them do it. Could have done it myself, but figured it was easier to just let them do it.
    I would check with t-mobile and see if they can do it for you if you cant figure it out on your own.

    I have tmo and it won't let me do it either. however, you can go to mobile.msn.com and check your mail that way. Not the same as getting your messages instantly but at least you can check it on the go. I hope that's useful to you.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Cingular user here. Set it up months ago with no issues. This has been an ongoing debate. I'm sure it is carrier specific. I know that I've had my hotmail account since before MS owned it. And I'm using hotmail live for free. So not sure.

    Here's a link I think you might find useful when attempting to use your BB to access your Hotmail account.

    From the looks of it, it seems that T-Mobile USA does not allow it.

    GetMail For Hotmail v3.25 found in the Application section of these forums works.

    Pushs all my hotmail email to my gmail address.. which in turn is pushed directly to my phone.

    Hope this helps!
    (im on T-MOBILE USA btw)
