    Personal Email Setup without AT&T Data Plan

    Advertisement



    Hello, I just got unlocked Blackberry Torch 9860 without AT&T blackberry data plan. The internet works great on Wi-Fi when I am connected to my router. When I go in the “Email Accounts Set up” to setup my Yahoo and gmail email accounts, I do not find the “Internet Email Account” application, just the Enterprise. Also when I go to “Messages” ==> Email Account Management, I get the message “Unable to open email setup application. Contact your wireless service provider”.

    Looks like the personal email setup requires blackberry data plan, not just the wi-fi access.

    My questions are:
    Is there a way I can use email account setup with internet on Wi-Fi, and not wind up with any data plan? Do I need to add then remove a Blackberry data plan? Will the personal email accounts still work on wi-fi if I remove the data plan later?

    Thanks!

    I believe you need a data plan in order to use e-mail services.

    You could try reloading the device OS to see if the email account management then gives you the Internet mail option.

    Sorry, been awhile since I've had a BlackBerry so I'm kinda rusty.

    I think you need a BlackBerry plan to use blackberry email.
