    E-mail issues

    I have an unlocked Storm on the T-Mobile US network. When I got the unlocked device, I contacted T-Mobile directly. They sent out the service books, allowing me to have all the T-Mo access (MMS, SMS, Browser, WAP, etc.). The only thing I am unsuccessful with is setting up my internet email (comcast, gmail, hotmail, and one other pop3 account). Everytime I use the files in the Setup folder, it get "there is an error connecting to server". I have also tried the back door, logging into "My T-Mobile" and setting it up on their webpage. That webpage too is giving me an error, even though I have the Blackberry data plan, and have the Blackberry 8900 selected as my device in the upper right.

    I've got 6 years of WM use under my belt. I've been able to hack some devices in my past, but truly lack the knowledge of the RIM OS, and how it works. I'm right now at 30 days owning this phone, and suprised it took so long to come over to Blackberry. Best phone I've ever had, but I do need to get my pop3 email on this device.

    Any of your RIM Nerds available to share your knowledge?

    Try going into your email setup folder, and when it gives you a list of your emails, hit BB button and hit resend service books

    I know you stated that they set you up with the service books, but it might not hurt to try this http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...crackutil.html.

    try going to option>advanced options> host routing table> hit the menu key re register
    then resend your service books within the phone.
    if that doesnt work, log in to your account, go to set up internet email, delete all the accounts and re add them
    hope that helps

    Thank you everyone for the quick replies. I have done almost all of the above. I have reregistered, resent service books, tried both the email setup on the device, and the setup on the T-Mobile Webpage. All with no success. I do have the Blackberry Data plan, so am truly stumped. The only one left to try is the link from ShanePark2 on how to fix for T-Mobile. I read through the directions, and sure I need to designate at least an hour to fix it through this process. I won't have an hour to attempt for a week or so, however, once completed, I will update everyone if I have any success.

    Thanks again everyone!

    Smile Try This

    Not sure if you got this resolved. I am new to Tmobile

    I had a problem similar to yours I would get an error when I tried to setup the email on the phone through the setup and then even through tmobile my.tmobile.com site.

    What it turned out was that the PIN # on my phone was not released from the system from my old provider because I switched from Dobson/CellularOne over to ATT. So it was still tied to their network.

    When I signed up with TMOBILE I had to give them my PIN# for the phone and the IMEI number and it became embedded in the account. So when I tried to start the email thing it got stuck. So when I called ATT ( they bought out Dobson/CellularOne ) they was able to go into the system and delete it out. Then I went back to the mytmobile.com site and logged in and went to set up the email thing and it popped up with my pin and wanted asked me to add email address and setup a TMO one. So that is what I think the problem is.

    Thanks again for reaching out with this...I had given up. I wanted to update the board on my progress. This is in fact the case. I've spoke to VzW about the issue, and this is the case. The issue is no one knows how to clear the email setup on my PIN. I was directed to BlackBerry Internet Service to "create an account", and that is when I found my PIN had an account already. I have sent an email to Tier 2 support with VzW, so hopefully they can assist me with deleting the account, or resetting it. So far, we have identified the issue. Just no one knows how to fix it as of yet.

    More to come.

    Cool. Too bad I did not see the thread sooner. Thats why when I saw you had the provblem I made sure to contact you since you been stuck. For me the rep had to check into some database thing where the records are kept and she stated that she just had to clear it out. It gotta me some simple thing you click off like a radio button or an check mark/uncheck mark thing.

    I is a keeping meh fingers crossed.

    You are my hero!!! It is working!!! I got fed up dealing with VzW, so called T-Mobile directly. I explained my issues and they put me in conference with RIM directly. I explained the issue, and they told me they couldn't for legal reasons (meaning the owner of the email could sue if he was paying for it and they delete it). I then asked what they would need me to get from VzW since they, as a carrier, should know if the phone was being used on their network. He asked me to hold, verified that the unit was registered on T-Mobile's network, and whiped it out. I was instantly ready to use both the setup folder on the phone, as well as access it on the My T-Mobile website.

    This has taken two long days, but I got it completed. This was after two weeks of trouble shooting it with T-Mobile directly. Easy fix once we found the issue. I will pass on the information, and reply to anyone having a similiar issue. I didn't even think this could have been the cause, but it does make sense with how secure these devices are.

    Thanks again for everything MixoPlex!!!

    After two days of searching, I have found the answer to my problems right here. I too am unable to access the email setup utility without getting a connection error after switching to T-Mobile. I had suspected that the pins were locked, now I just need to take the steps to have them moved to the new provider.

    Thanks th1nm1nt for detailing your experience so that I now know what to expect/anticipate.
