accessing internet email on my Sprint 8830

Fo the life of me I cannot figure out how to access internet email on my Sprint 8830.  I inherited this device, and when I use the

Setup Wizard > Email setup option, it gives me only a BES option and a skip email setup option. I am not using a BES, I just want to get my Gmail. I do have a data plan, and my browser (OperaMini) works just fine.


I have upgraded my software to, and I still can't get this internet email option. The manual clearly shows the option, but it's just not there.  What am I doing wrong?  


thanks for any help you can provide on this

I'm not the expert here, but I think you have to have a data plan to access the internet at allSmiley Happy
