I have just received a storm but need to set up my email. Could someone please explain to me why I need to pay vodafone 4.50 per month to pay for this when my other phones just worked. Vodafone were useless on the phone.

Thanks

James

Blackberrys use a server to process the emails. All data goes through these servers to. This is why you have to pay.
The 4.50 includes unlimited data to (not sure of vodaffones fair usage policy).

Ok thanks for the reply. Vf didn't explain that and it annoyed me because I'm already paying for a data plan but that should mean I can cancel that.

Posted by jcwhite_uk
Yeah, if you already have a data plan then that can be cancelled as the blackberry wont use it. You wont be able to use the blackberry data plan on another phone though.

I have sorted everything out with Vodafone but I am trying to set my work email up onto the Storm but struggling with this (Sorry never used a Blackberry).

I have managed to add my Sky email address to my Storm easily enough but struggling with the work one.

Any tips/ideas how I can do this?

Thanks

Is it an exchange account?

Posted by vivid white
Now you'll have to go slowly with me on this. I havent got a clue what that means but if it helps I have had my work email set up on a

X1i
Omnia
E71i
and people at work use iPhones as well

Thanks

James

chances are the that BlackBerry won't know the email settings unless it is popular like Hotmail or Gmail so you will probably need the pop3/imap settings for the works account and set it up manually!

Posted by vivid white
Okay thats great.

I have

Email
Username
Password
Server Name
Domain

Which is what my windows mobile devices used to ask for is this enough?

Thanks

James

I'm no expert but that sounds like microsoft exchange and I have absolutely no idea how to set that up on a BB, I think JC will have more of an idea....

Posted by vivid white
