Email Retreival

So I have setup my Email account with my BlackBerry, and I was wondering if there is a way to retreive the emails manually, rather than get them as they come into my inbox (as it should be, I know =P) but sometimes when I'm on 3G signal (at work) I don't want to get my emails so I just wanna get them whilst I'm at home and using my WiFi.

 

Any ideas on this one guys?

Regards, Ben

Re: Email Retreival

Nope, RIM's technology allows for the instant "push", there's no manual "pull".

 

Whilst you're out and about, should you choose, you can turn off your Options > Mobile Network > Data Services and turn Data Services back on while your on WiFi.

 

Doing so will disable all data (internet, BBmessenger, email, etc.) while it is off.

Voice and SMS text will still work.

Re: Email Retreival

Heres one,

 

I live in the sticks and barley get enough service for a stable text. When i first got my phone I was able to get emails at home through my wifi with out moble service. Now all of the sudden its not allowing me to do it. seems kind of odd i wounder if  i messed up a setting or something. so i tried moving my wifi settings to the top of my priority list and  when I try to repair or re activate my email account to my phone it wont allow me to do it with out having moble service.

Re: Email Retreival

Medic, do you still have mobile service on the device, or just a bad service low signal?
