I am now 6 days in to my new BB 8830 Curve...(my first). I thoroughly enjoy it....from sending text message with my thick fingers to down-loading music from my iTunes library to Sprint TV. However, for the past 5 days, I have done all that I can to get my BB to sync with my MSN Hotmail account. I had no problems with Yahoo and Google email accounts. MSN tech support said, Hotmail will NOT sync, but MSN Live will (fee service of course). This weekend, I signed up for MSN Live, got a new "@live.com" email address (along with my original hotmail). After I signed up, I was "finally" able to get my BB to recognized my hotmail address. I sent and received test messages. Now I think I'm set.......WRONG. This morning, I had 8 new emails in my hotmail account and NOT A SINGLE EMAIL WAS PICKED UP ON MY BB.
What could I be doing wrong? What do I need to activate?

Search this forum for the answer.. you will find it.. Rather than posting the same question multiple times...
In theory, unless its a paid hotmail account, it won't sync.
Mine, however does as I have a very very old Hotmail account that was on the old Legacy Platform.

Thanks for the recommendation. Here is another suggestion....click the browser (the globe) on the application page. Then hit the menu button and select "Go To..." Type in "msn.com:" and go to the MSN web page. From here, click the Hotmail link and it will take you to your hotmail account.
