    Need email on 8220 Flip

    Advertisement



    I just bought an unlocked 8220. I took my SIM card out of my Bold and the flip works great, unlocked of course. My question- how do I get my email accounts, eg. Chokem@att.blackberry.net on this flip. There is no set up icon that allows you to set an email acct up to it. Will I have to call ATT and give them the flip's IMEI # so they can send books to it? And, can I have both my email accts on both phones, and just change the SIM card when I want to switch devices? Thanks Stack nation.

    You need to go on your BIS site and change your PIN....and sorry, only one phone at a time.

    That's what I was afraid of, oh well, I've still got internet on it. Thanks Gary!

    I have more than one phone and I have all my email accounts set up on all of them. The email is setup through the servicebooks, so when I change sim cards, I just change device and send the servicebooks to the phone that I want to use. I do it all on line with TMO, or through the setup icon on my phone.

    Actually matts is correct and I may have mis-spoke. I intended to say you cannot have 2 ACTIVE devices on your BIS...but as stated....all you need to do is swap SIM cards and enter your new PIN and push the service books and you can swap devices to your hearts content!

    I could, but there's no set up icon on this flip. Its not like my Bold in that regard.

    Yes, its unbranded. I've looked everywhere for the email set up. On the icons page under manage cnnections, where it should be, there's only mobile network, bluetooth and wi fi set ups. No email set up. Am I missing something? You said "enter your PIN", where do I do this also? Thanx.

    Ok. I'm on my Bold so I'll put my SIM back into the flip. I guess what confusing me is that I'm manually having to enter this info and when I bought my 8310 and 9000 new, I didn't have to set this up, it was already on there. Be back in a few. Hey, I appreciate your help.

    Me too. Its a good size carry phone. I like it. Its slower than my Bold, but then what isn't? Lol. I put my 4GB Sandisk in and the player with audio boost is great. All in all a very good Berry. I think this used to be Cherri's. Its hot the BSE on it and in really good shape. This SureType takes a little getting used to though. Thanks again.
