    E-Mail - Unlocked T-mobile 7290 in Ireland


    I bought an Cingular off the net. Works fine as a phone and for storing addresses. I haven't a clue though how to set up E-Mail. I'm on O2.

    Is it a case of having to subscribe to their Blackberry service, or can I set up e-mail (like on an XDA) without a subscription?

    That's probably a general question i.e. If I have a Blackberry and need to use e-mail, do I have to subscribe to a carriers Blackberry service?

    Hi pakel, welcome to pinstack. In order to utilize the BB's capabilities you must have a data plan, which will allow you to browse the internet and send and receive email. I hope this helps.

    But not merely a data plan, a BlackBerry Data Plan.

    Best to talk to a live person with your carrier; if you're unsure of what constitutes a BlackBerry Data Plan then you may sign up for the wrong thing and be disappointed.
