Setup BlackBerry E-mail Using a Web Browser


If you're more comfortable navigating the Net than poking around on the Blackberry, then head online to setup your e-mail accounts for your phone.

Before you start you'll need some info about your phone. If you still have the box it came in, look for the PIN and ESN/MEID numbers, which should be located near the UPC code. If you can't find them no worries, you can find them inside the phone's interface. Go to the main menu and choose the wrench-shaped icon for 'Options.' Scroll to 'Status' and select it by pressing on the track ball. Then jot down the PIN and ESN number.

Then:
  1. On your PC head to http://www.blackberry.com/emailsetup, and create an account for yourself. You'll be asked to click on your service provider.
  2. Depending on your phone carrier you'll log in by entering either the PIN or ESN numbers (for Sprint and AT&T). For T-Mobile you'll need to input your mobile account number. If you're unsure, contact your service provide.
  3. After creating your account and signing in, click 'Create Address.' Follow the prompts to validate your account. Once it says it is a valid email, emails should be routed to your phone automatically.
  4. Don't forget to log out!
