This is part of the problem. When I changed my carrier to Vodafone Es (in Spain) and bought the new BB, I had to set up so many new accounts, passwords and usernames that I didn't know whether I was coming or going. Now I am confused as to what is what.

If you do not recall your BIS account information, simply call your service provider and have it reset. They can issue a temporary user name and password that you can change after logging in with the temporary information.
Thank you. Yes, I do see that any e-mail received or sent constitutes data, but I thought that e-mail sent and received through the e-mail account associated with the PIN was somehow treated differently, and or travelled through different servers that are BB's, rather than one's carrier's servers.
As far as intergrated email accounts, BBM can work using either an email address associated with the device, or with the device PIN. Any email regardless of its association with BBM uses data, as does BBM itself.
Perhaps I didn't express myself clearly enough before. The e-mail account (and address) I meant to refer to is the one associated with the device PIN. My understanding is that one can associate up to 10 e-mail accounts and addresses with the device, but only 1 with the PIN.
Under Setup/Personal information/Edit Contact/ 3 e-mail addresses are shown against my name. The PIN is also shown. Which of the 3 e-mail addresses is associated with the PIN?
I have had no problem in deleting the email account I believed to be wrongly associated with the PIN. Unfortunately I still do not understand how one knows which, if any, e-mail account/address is associated with the PIN, and which not.
You can certainly delete the email accounts and later add them in whatever fashion you prefer. As far as which email account is associated with BBM, I'm not 100% certain that it matters because whichever it is still requires and uses data to send and receive BBM msgs.
