No Personal Email option on 8350i?

Greetings.

I picked up an 8350i today and after 7 1/2 hours and two phones later, I am live on the iden network.

Ok hereis myissue;When I choose "Email Setup" from the wizard,I get only the "Enterprise Server" setup option. The Basic Guide Book, says that thereare twooptionsthe aforementioned and "BlackBerry Internet Service Option" and that, I can set up to "10" email accounts when I choose this option.

This option isn't there: "BlackBerry Internet Service Option"

Any way to correct this issue?

Things I've tried are:

Soft and Hard Resets

Updating to the latest Software Build

Thanks

On my 8350i I can go into the Setup folder and then choose Email Settings. It asks me to login with my username/password that I created the first time just like on the CDMA side. After that I get easy straight forward screens.

I never use the first time setup wizard since it has different screens that never seem to show you what you need when you need it.

H, thanks for the suggestion/info. However on my device and firmware, the setup folder takes me to the same screen as the wizard, with the same results; Asingle choice of: "BlackBerry Enterprise".

I'm beginning to consider that, I may have, defected equipment and or programming.

Hmm I'm not sure then. I'll upload some screen caps in a little bit walking through my steps. Have you gone to http://nextel.blackberry.com/ and setup a BIS account there? It is an alternate way to do it if the device won't let you.

EDIT: Here are the screen caps I got.

After logging in, since I already had a username/password I setup. Note that before setting up my email on http://nextel.blackberry.com/ it automatically took me past this screen.

Kevin, if you don't mind, can you PM me how you did those screen captures from the 8350i? I'd love to be able to provide something like that elsewhere.

Had a customer come into the store today with the same issue. Apparently they've had a lot of people call in recently with this same issue, and they aren't sure what it stems from at the moment.

Mine is like this too. I was told by tech support that they cant figure out why it isnt on all phones. They advise to go into your browser and go to bookmarks and personal email setup is in there.

You can also manually type in "nextel.blackberry.com" in the browser and it will redirect you to the correct site as well.
