About accessing the BlackBerry Internet Service for the first time
The first time that you open the BlackBerry Internet Service email setup application or visit the BlackBerry Internet Service website, you can add a supported email address. On BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device you can also set up a BlackBerry email address.
You might want to add an email address if you have an existing supported email account that you want to access from your BlackBerry device.
On BlackBerry 7.1 or earlier device you might want to set up a BlackBerry email address if you do not have another existing, supported email account or if you need an additional email address that you can use to send and receive email messages.
