    I'm not 100% sure, but i think you have to be paying for your hotmail to get it set up with BIS, the free hotmail gives you limited access, the one you pay for allows you to do more and set it up with BIS, but again I'm not 100% sure
    It's not an iPhone addiction, it's insomnia!

    [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman]Agreement will enhance the communications experience on BlackBerry smartphones through popular Windows Live Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger services
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman]Seattle, WA and Waterloo, ON – May 12, 2008
    [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman] Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced an agreement to provide Microsoft Windows Live services on BlackBerry® smartphones. As a result of this collaboration, BlackBerry smartphone customers will enjoy easy mobile access to Windows Live Messenger and an enhanced level of integration between Windows Live Hotmail and the BlackBerry platform.

    The integration of Windows Live services into the BlackBerry platform will allow customers who use Windows Live Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger on their BlackBerry smartphone to benefit from the BlackBerry platform architecture with the ability to communicate in real-time using push technology, and offering an exceptional mobile communications experience. Customers will also be able to seamlessly access their Windows Live Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger account from their BlackBerry smartphone by simply entering their Windows Live e-mail address and password once.

    "The BlackBerry platform is respected around the world for providing optimized messaging capabilities and RIM continues to look for ways to provide customers with a wide range of communications options and the best possible mobile experience," said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing at Research In Motion. "Our relationship with Microsoft and the addition of Windows Live services to BlackBerry smartphones helps us build on that strategy for our customers."

    Among other features:
    Windows Live Hotmail for BlackBerry will allow customers to:
    Use BlackBerry 'push' technology for automatic message delivery and message synchronization so the customers’ online account is up-to-date with actions taken on their BlackBerry smartphone
    Use a dedicated inbox for Windows Live Hotmail messages, which are automatically delivered to the smartphone. Customers can also choose to receive their Windows Live Hotmail messages, along with messages from other e-mail accounts, within a single inbox on their BlackBerry smartphone
    Display HTML e-mail with the ability to view graphics, Web links, and contact photos in emails

    Windows Live Messenger for BlackBerry will allow customers to:
    Send instant messages and join group chats
    Set status and see the presence of friends and colleagues within Windows Live Messenger or their contact cards
    Customize status messages
    Save conversations
    Showcase their Display Picture (Avatar)
    Send and receive pictures and files
    Use more than 60 emoticons

    "Over 430 million people around the world rely on Windows Live to stay in touch," said Brian Arbogast, Vice President of the Mobile Services organization at Microsoft. "Our collaboration with RIM will enable BlackBerry smartphone customers to take full advantage of Windows Live, whether at work or on the go."

    Windows Live services for BlackBerry smartphones are expected to be available beginning this summer with support for multiple languages.

    What Justyn said was correct. Only a slim amount of hotmail users are able to set it up without a yearly fee. The Lucky few
