Is it possible ?

I am trying to get access to my email account (provided by my internet access supplier) on my blackberry 8320  via my home WiFi (so not through the mobile operator). Is it possible to configure the BB 8320 in a way that when I am connected on my WiFi at home, I may get my Emails (pull method) ?  If yes, I would be very glad to understand howto proceed.


Same question in order to use the browser via my Wifi (I already configured the "WiFi browser in the options but not working so far)


Thanks fo your replies !!

Re: Is it possible ?

Do you have a BB Data Plan from your carrier?


No, you can't access your mail via WiFi; there is no "pull" method with RIM, all email is "pushed" to the device.


re: the browser:  Go to Options --> Advanced Options --> Browser --> and change the default browser from Internet Browser to HotSpot Browser
