    Hi all - brand new BB user here, please be gentle. I just got my Curve on Friday at the Verizon store. The guy set it all up for me and sent me on my way. Now I'm reading (in the BB 101 lecture series, thanks BTW) that my device itself has an email address. Is there somewhere on the device that I can find out what the address is or do I have to track the guy down at the Verizon store?

    I may have to locate him anyway because apparently an account's already been set up on the Verizon BIS site and I have no idea what the username and password are.

    OK, I figured out the email part. I didn't realize that Email Settings was a different item than Options. Once I discovered that I figured out how to set up the account. I still don't know how to get into the BIS server though.

    Hi & welcome to the family! Hmm, if I'm not mistaken, your email address should have been set up just like your PC email, w/user name & p/word, but go into 'options' > 'advanced options' > 'service book' > scroll down to the [CMIME], that should tell you what your email address is.

    Hi again. BIS is for personal emails, BES is for company emails.

    You are responding to a VERY old thread, and somewhat obsolete. What BlackBerry device do you have? I'm thinking probably one with OS 6.0? If so then the Advanced Options are in a slightly different place.....

    Go to the Options wrench, then Device, Then Advanced System Settings

    Now what do you want to do in there? What is the problem with your device?
