    Hi,

    Simple question: How to add Yahoo account to blackberry email? I'm on BIS and everytime I try to add a (free) yahoo account, my Bold informs me that free yahoo accounts are not allowed; only Yahoo Plus accounts can be added as those can be checked through POP3 servers. On the other hand, the yahoo blackberry link

    h**p://mobile.yahoo.com/blackberry/mail

    makes no mention of free or paid account. Has anyone successfully added free yahoo account to their BB emails?

    if you already have your free yahoo email, you need to go to your carriers BIS login site and add the email address there. i dont know what your carriers site is, so you will need to figure that one out. i use a free yahoo email as my main BB push email.

    This sounds like a carrier-specific issue so you probably want to contact them. I've never heard of a Bold refusing to add a free Yahoo account. I have two of them on my Bold and added them through BIS/Personal Email Setup w/o problem.

    Yeah, this does not sound correct.

    You tried to set it up here?

    You must have a Blackberry service on your account for this to work.

    Hmm interesting. All you guys are correct.. it is indeed a carrier specific issue.. rather region-specific issue. Seems like Yahoo has restricted users of South East Asia from using free accounts on their Blackberry (since March.).. oh well!!

    Am from south east asia and was told that email add @yahoo.com.xx will not work. Is yours @yahoo.com and have you tried? Otherwise I suggest you to setup a gmail acct if you haven't and forward your yahoo mail to gmail. Should be able to use pushmail for gmail.

    In the news, I heard China blocked certain sites. Maybe this is the case for you.
