Getting my username for my Email set

I setup a few emails accounts when i first got my Blackberry 8330. I don't remember my username. The system is setup to give you your password based on a username. I cannot create an account and start over because it see's that my pin # already has an account. Does anyone know where I can go to get my username attached to my pin. My provider is Verizon Wirless. I have checked there site and have found nothing.

Re: Getting my username for my Email set

I would suggest calling Verizon. If they can't give it to the account holder, there is not a way within the BB to get it.


Otherwise, if it were that easy, think of what a lack of security that would be.


Good luck.

Re: Re: Getting my username for my Email set

Hello, I just had the same problem with my girlfriend's phone. You may be able to have the same luck I had. We used a laptop and went to at&t site, and found the link to the blackberry internet service site. From there you should be able to request your password, but to get your username, try the first letter of your first name and either your full last name or possible 4 letters. Hope this helps!
