BlackBerry Storm 9520 Email Service

Dear all,


I have a BlackBerry Storm 9520 and I'm trying to configure my email account (POP3) without BIS (in this case, to use with standart interner service). But when I try to configure, the only option I have is to use a BES password, which I don't have.


Is it possible to obtain it and use the standart internet service in this BB model?

Re: BlackBerry Storm 9520 Email Service


Welcome to the Community

BB 7 and earlier devices requires specific BIS BlackBerry Data Plan to gain BlackBerry data services (BBM, BB World, Facebook for BB, BB Protect, push email).

You can call your carrier and ask them to add BIS BlackBerry Data Plan to your sim card account. Once you have it, you will able to set up your email account.

Good luck.
