Register an email address with BlackBerry Messenger

When you register an email address with BlackBerry® Messenger, BlackBerry Messenger backs up changes to your contacts, profile, and group membership over the wireless network to a BlackBerry Messenger server that is operated by or on behalf of Research In Motion or its affiliates.

Depending on your wireless service plan or organization, this feature might not be supported.

Before you begin: To perform this task, you must have an email address that is associated with your BlackBerry® device.

  2. On the contact list screen, press the Menu key.
  3. Click Options.
  4. Click Back Up.
  5. Click Back up files remotely.
  6. Perform one of the following options:
    • If you only have one email address that is associated with your device, click Register.
    • If you have more than one email address that is associated with your device, highlight an unregistered email address. Press the Menu key. Click Edit Email Status. Click Register.
  7. Click OK.
To view the status of the registration for the email address, repeat steps 1 to 5.
