Setting up e mail options

Hi I have a Black berry bold that was given to me by a friend he had it as a free upgrade and didint get on with it so he kindly gave it to me, however when I try and go to my e mail options it only gives me the option of I want to set up an e mail account with a blackberry enterprise server. This is the only option that I have is there any other way apart from setting up the e mail this way. I just want to set up a normal e mail account.


Thanks Dominic

Re: Setting up e mail options



you MUST have a BlackBerry Data Plan from your carrier for email and internet on a BlackBerry. Call you carrier and have it put on your account.

Re: Setting up e mail options

Adding with JSanders...Once you have BlackBerry dataplan you'll be having Email Settings icon on your device through which you'll be able to integrate your personal email IDs.
