Another thing I noticed is that at the top of my Messages folder, there's a stand-alone message under the label (where a date usually is) "BlackBerry: Important." The message is from BlackBerry and says "Action Required: Activate Email." It asks me to "click Activate Email" so I can "associate [my] BlackBerry ID with [my] email service."
If I click on Activate Email, I have a list of my email accounts awaiting the input of my passwords for each one. I haven't done this (yet) -- not sure why I want to associate all of my email accounts with my BlackBerry ID. I already have one associated with it, and why do they want the password to that email account anyway, when I have a separate password for BlackBerry ID?
