Re: Can't synch with Hotmail account

See everyone says that, including RIM.


Yet I have a free hotmail account and never have any issues (touch wood)


all my free accounts work, hotmail, gmail, bigpond.


guess im one of the lucky ones..

Re: Can't synch with Hotmail account

Some of the older hotmail accounts were grandfathered by Microsoft.  The newer accounts require the upgrade to Premiere.

Re: Can't synch with Hotmail account

Some other users are enjoying hotmail integration because of BIS 2.5 upgradation from BIS 2.4 by RIM. For your case just wait few more days...you'll also be able to integrate your hotmail ID once RIM upgrades BIS in your region.
