Blackberry.net email account

I set up an account with sprint.blackberry.com and got an email account with the email address myusername@sprint.blackberry.net.

Everything is working, but is there a way to log into the email account using the web? Login to sprint.blackberry.com does not give any option of looking into the email account. I want to be able to check emails without using the phone. Anyone knows how I could do that? Thanks!

Re: Blackberry.net email account

No there is not, sorry.

 

A few years ago, there was, but that was phased out.

 

My recommedation would be not to use a yourname@yourcarrier.blackberry.net address, for a few reasons... the one you mentioned is one of them. The second reason, there is absolutely no spam filtering on those emails (other than what you can set up using the "filters" on your sprint BIS account. Instead, get a free Gmail account, and use that pushed to your BlackBerry. You get web based interface with your mail from any PC in the world, and great spam filtering.

Re: Blackberry.net email account

The *.blackberry.net accounts aren't transportable either -- at least not from carrier to carrier.  Should you ever switch carriers in the future, you'd lose the address.  With any other BIS-integrated account you'd just integrate the email account with BIS on your new carrier (and remove it from the old carrier's BIS).

 

Spam is really the worst part though.  Your only recourse is to ditch the email address and create a new one.  Don't use it.

Re: Blackberry.net email account

I know this is an old thread but i was wondering if you know how we can retrieve password? I had a phone replacement and when I was setting it up, my personal email add and that was asked for password for activation. i can not remember setting up one. If I do, normally it's all the same but all possible combination isnt working..

Re: Blackberry.net email account

Is this a password for your email account, your BlackBerry BIS account, or your BlackBerryID?

Re: Blackberry.net email account

Then yes, you can all your mobile provider Globe and ask them to reset your account. What will happen is more or less, they delete the account and re-add it, in effect starting fresh and new. Create a new password.
