not really. hotmail has to be checked throught the web browser, and blackberrys aren't known for web browsing. what service carrier do you have?
I have had hotmail since 1990 and they do not give me pop for free. I actually just switched to gmail.cjever19 said:I love the blackberry. I have a pearl and use it for web daily, albeit mostly WAP sites. If mobile web is really what you want, iPhone. Though problems do plague iPhone users.
If you can't get push email on bb, it's not going to happen on iPhone either. You can with "Premier" hotmail for a fee, though this site claims some veteran hotmail (5+ years) users get POP access free.
Time to upgrade to better email with free POP/IMAP? (i.e. gmail)
You can get hotmail to you phone but you will need to setup your hotmail to be forward to another email, i use my att blackberry email. but in order to do this you have to purchase hotmail plus for 1995 a year.bsboggs said:Hi All,
My wife wants a new cell phone. The things she wants to do with it (besides the main function of talking on it) is to check her email (hotmail) and browse the web.
Is the Blackberry good for this? Any other suggestions?
We've got Qwest service but they recently have switched their cellular service bundle to Verizon. Verizon doesn't offer the iphone but it does the Blackberry.Kenkong586 said:not really. hotmail has to be checked throught the web browser, and blackberrys aren't known for web browsing. what service carrier do you have?
