    I've been looking through a lot of helpful posts here. I switched from a Treo 700wx (all kinds of freeze up problems) to the Pearl 8130 Verizon. Boy they were pushing the Pearl in the store. Just got it last week and there's definately a learning curve, but handling it well.

    Just found out from 3 "verizon tech support people" that you can't have hotmail pushed to your phone? One told me to get a BB email address and then forward hotmail, but hotmail (windows live) won't let you do that, it has to be forwarded to a msn.com or live.com account.

    What am I missing?

    I have the 30 day return thing, I want to love my BB but I want to be able to get my email and function normally.

    Your problem has nothing to do with the Pearl, Hotmail disallowed push on hotmail accounts when they began offering their premium services a while back. If you had push enabled before then, it would continue to work. However if you tried to set it up after, it requires a premium account to use. I never found a work around, so I just switched to gmail. I'm not sure if there's a work around now. Might be worth googling.
