    I personally have my Hotmail account on my BB and (knock on wood) haven't had any problems so far.

    However I am running OS 1.96 and am on BIS 2.3

    Hotmail works on my Pearl, however I did create my Hotmail account in 1997 or so!

    Newer versions of hotmail i think don't have the pop access for the Push server. you need to upgrade your hotmail inbox to get pop or check it thru the browser icon. I know with at&t on Media Net we have a hotmail link for their wap login portal.

    good point Sokudo, I actually am using windows live version of Hotmail not the original version and I've had that account for many years also.

    i don't know if it matters, but mine is set to windows live. can't hurt to try. delete the email on your phone after you change views, re-add it with setup internet email app on the phone and resend service books, reboot the phone and see if that helps.

    /fingers crossed, haha. sometimes it works for people sometimes it doesn't

    see, for some folks it works, some it doesn't. i'm on TMO too.

    Jays, when you click setup internet email on your BB there's an option for service books, click ti and then send service books. it registers your email accts with the BB network.
