Email set up on a Blackberry 9780

I'm having trouble when it comes to setting up email all it asks me for is a username not an email address, I was told by my phone network it was the same username as I use for my app world but that's wrong, I tried to use some of my email address and that didn't work I'd really appreciate aomeones help asap, thanks x

Hello karisuk1,


If you a using device software 6.0 or lower you'll need to contact your service provider again and they can check your BlackBerry® Internet service user name on your account.


If you are using a BlackBerry® 7 device it would be requesting the BlackBerry® ID that was first used when you set up your BlackBerry® smartphone. You can locate your BlackBerry® ID under Options, Device, BlackBerry ID.


Thank you.
