  • Verify that your BlackBerry® device is connected to the wireless network. If you are not in a wireless coverage area, you should receive messages when you return to a wireless coverage area.
  • Reset your device. Connect to the network and try again.
  • If you created an email address or added an existing email address to your device using the email setup screen in the Setup application, verify that you have received an activation message on your device from the BlackBerry® Internet Service. If you have not received an activation message (the message might take a short period of time to arrive), in the Setup application, open the email setup screen to send a service book to your device.
