    Yeah, I just bought my phone used, and even went to the blackberry website, put in the PIN I have, and it said an account already exists, and I would like to add my own account

How do I set my e-mail address to download emails


Just so everyone knows, I have BB Curve 8310 with AT & T.

You get 1 blackberry email account (in my case, it's username@att.blackberry.net). If you're like me, you have business, personal, etc accounts that you want to add without getting 20-30 minute delays before the email hits your BB.

Let's say you have 2 emails you want to set up (1 for your business and 1 personal). Let's say your business POP3 email is myname@mybusiness.com.

1) Create a username with your ATT BB address (let's say, mybusinessname@att.blackberry.net).
2) In your POP3 email settings, choose to "redirect" or "forward and save a copy in Inbox" and forward your emails to your ATT BB address (mybusinessname@att.blackberry.net) you've just created. This will help get your emails to your BB pretty much instantaneously. And emails will be kept in your inbox for you to reference as well.
3) Log into your providers BIS (short for Blackberry Internet Service). ** Can't post a link but you can just Google your providers name followed by Blackberry Internet Service and you should find it
4) Once you're logged in, from there you can set up your account.
• Email Account Name: put your ATT BB address in there
• Reply To: This is where you can put any email address you want. So, even though you're sending the email from username@att.blackberry.net, the user will see whatever email address you put in this field. So, in this case, you want to put myname@mybusiness.com. So, the user will see it came from myname@mybusiness.com and when replying, they will reply to myname@mybusiness.com (which is then forwarded to your ATT BB email, which is then forwarded to your BB).
• Auto BCC: The only problem with doing this (and I run into this a lot) is that since I'm sending out so many emails - some from BB and some from my office computer, I don't know what I sent to people, and without an Enterprise server, it is not automatically synched with my desktop in my office. What you can do here is set up a Gmail account and name it mybusiness_dump@gmail.com and any email you send from your BB will be sent to this email address as well so you know what you sent people.
• Signature: You can change your signature for each of your email accounts (business, personal, whatever), which is great.

Can i reset forgotten password on BB curve if not enabled


Yes, but you would have to enter the wrong password 10x - Caution - this will wipe your BB of all saved data.

Or can contact your cell provider and see if they can reset your password if not and your BB is issued to you via your Company than you can have your BB Administrator reset your BB password.

Hope this helps.

I'm having the same problem


This is what you need to do to correct this issue


You need to reflash the OS on the phone you should take the battery out first then connect it via the usb cable to the laptop/pc you are using then open the blackberry desktop manager,click on the apploader, then install the OS.

pls not that when u click on the apploader the pin should be PIN:UNKNOWN you make need to do this like 4x before the pc sees the pin:unknown but it will work once it see the pin:unknown you can re-insert the battery and continue with reflashing the phone

I have a Blackberry Curve 8330 and cannot see my outlook email.


There is an option in Outlook with a Checkbox that says "Leave a Copy of Messenges on Server." Under Tools, then Options. That box must be checked, otherwise when mail co Almes into Outlook on your computer, it will never come in on your phone. There is also an option on your phone to have messages deleted from the computer when you delete email messages from the computer and vice-versa. Best recommendation is to pull-up the very-large user-guide on Blackberry.com, look at the table of contents and you'll see what I'm talking about under Email settings, with exact instructions of how to resolve your issue on the Curve.

How to change the email address on my phone blackberry 8310, I bought it from a friend and his email address is still in the phone and I want to add my own.


Sir if you connected to the same carrier call the service provider and change it to your name and delete the accounts that has been created on that BB 8310 device and add your email address to recieve the mail. If you are into another carrier ask your friend to release the PIN and IMEI no(get the unlock key for the device) from thier side and once the PIN and IMEI is released call your service provider and they will register the BB HH using the PIN and IMEI no and integrate your email accounts and start recieveing mails.

Call block options or software (free) for BB Curve 8330


Nope, the call blocks are handled by the switching hardware the cell provider uses. You can set your bb to block text messages, multimedia messages, pin messages, blackberry internet services, and enterprise email, but that's it.

Reset email account


If you have noting important in the Blackberry you can get the email account and everything else removed by peforming a security wipe.

Go to Options / Security Options / General Settings. Once here - press the menu button (the one with the BB logo to the left of the trackball) and select Wipe Handheld.
