Email on newly acquired 8520

I've just acquired an 8520, and would like to get my emails on it.  The problem is that at the moment it wants to get email from a work email account using an enetrprise server, and of course I don't have access to that.  How can I get rid of the connection to an enterprise server?  I would really like to just get it from BT wifi using my normal email addresses.

Re: Email on newly acquired 8520

Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan enabled on your account with your carrier or mobile provider?

You must, in order to get the RIM push email functions you are looking for, as well as additional BlackBerry data services such as the internet browser, Facebook for BlackBerry, BlackBerry Messenger, and much more.

So, call your carrier and inquire about having the BlackBerry Data Plan added to your account.

Good luck.

Re: Email on newly acquired 8520

Many thanks for your help.  A quick call to Orange and he put the phone on the Blackberry wifi set up.  A little fiddling with the phone thereafter and I now have my email running smoothly.  Again, my thanks.
