    Hi All,

    My girlfriends brother has given me a blackberry for nothing as he upgraded all the blackberry users in his office to the latest handset. Its a 7230 on vodaphone.

    Now i have a vodaphone mobile which i get each month a certain amount of GPRS time. Can i setup this blackberry using my voda sim to send and recieve emails from my yahoo email account??

    I have been on the vodaphone website and im stuck already. I assume i need to set this up to my sim.

    Is there anyone who can help me set this up??

    Thanks for looking :thumbsup:

    No you need the blackberry tariff/service books enabled to do this, but you can slap a blackberry email only tariff onto an existing plan for a tenner or thereabouts IIRC

    Once you do that it's relatively simple to setup the webmail account they will give you which will grab any pop3 account (yahoo gmail etc)

    Well, It's not really a tariff change, moreso like 'bolting on' an addon GPRS pack onto an existing 'time package'. Gotta admit it IS quite useful ;)
