How to transfer my tmo.blackberry.net email account to my new phone?
Noob question: I got an @tmo.blackberry.net account on my bold 9700. Now someone gave me a T mobile Bold 9900. How can I transfer my email account to the new phone?
(Note: the new phone does not have a tmo.blackberry.net email account)
Also. How do I send email using @tmo.blackberry.net on my computer? Is there a webmail site? I tried http://www.tmo.blackberry.net/ but it does not exist.

Hi and welcome to CrackBErry!
The beauty of the tmo blackberry acct is that it only exists ON YOUR PHONE. SO there is no web url to check it anywhere else. Just on your phone. This means that anything you send TO it will only appear on your device. I used that account (when I had BIS) to send things to my phone like wallpapers and ringtones. and skipped the middle man...my desktop.

JayDee is correct. Your tmo.blackberry.net account is for your phone only. Tmo will use it for internal notifications, otherwise it's a useless account. It will transfer to your 9900 when you register the device to the TMo network. Know this, if you ever move to BlackBerry 10 OS you will no longer use the tmo.blackberry.net account, nor will you use it to setup your new BB10 OS installed device. Z10, etc. devices. You will be able to use an existing account associated with any server. I use my @photo-fix.com personal domain.
Do good things.

You can transfer your @tmo.blackberry.net domain account from legacy OS phones. I did the same thing when I went from a Curve 8900 to a Bold 9780. You have to do your transfer through BlackBerry Desktop software. It'll take all of your settings from one phone into the new one including your device email. I recommend doing a security wipe on the 9900 before you do this though to make sure there are no old settings from the person who gave you the phone that may interfere with the process. However, if you ever update to a BB10 device you will lose access to this email account since it is tied to your BIS data account for legacy OS which BB10 does not support.

He's not asking to transfer from BBOS7, but from one legacy BB to another. And it's done quite easily. Just go to the T-Mobile web site, to email tools, and 'transfer devices', if memory serves. Or something like that. I've transferred from a 8100, to a 9700, to a 9900, all keeping the same TMO.blackberry.net address. And it's also possible to change the BIS email address using this same tool.

Just a FYI, if you keep your old BlackBerry on the older operating systems, you can still reach the account if the phone has wifi access. BlackBerry ID is all you need.
The accounts were supposed to go away in 2014 if you have bb10, but that doesn't seem to be happening.
That said, I removed anything critical off my BlackBerry account.
After using the z10, I can barely press the keys on my old bold.
