Re: How do I set up an email for my blackberry?

I would recommend adding an existing email address to your BlackBerry via BIS. You can add a blackberry email address, but I don't recommend using those for a few reasons, one being that it is not spam filtered. The other is their isnt a web interface to check those emails, the only way they can be checked is via the BlackBerry. To add an email address to your BlackBerry via BIS you have to make sure you have a data plan on your BlackBerry. Then go to your carriers BIS site. Just do a google search, for example " AT&T BIS". This will allow you to add an existing email address to your BlackBerry, which in turn will allow you to have applications emailed to your phone.
