Set up email via Wifi



Can somebody answer me if I am able to set up my email account via Wifi WITHOUT a BIS data plan?

I use 8900 and via Wifi I can use the internet browing but I cannot set up my email account. Do I need a data plan??

Re: Set up email via Wifi

Gazebo, no. On the 8900 you must have a BIS data plan on your account ot use the BlackBerry email setup on the device.
