First make sure your bill or pre pay (see below) account has been provisioned for BIS (Blackberry internet services). Following this you can setup in one of 2 ways.

  •  Via your PC/MAC

Depending on your network go to:

http://3ireland.blackberry.com

http://meteor.blackberry.com

http://emobile.blackberry.com

http://www.mobileemail.vodafone.ie

Then create a new account and register your devices IMEI and pin. Service books should then be sent to your phone.

From here you can set up emails too.

  •  Directly from your device

Depending on your device the menu is either:

  •  Options, Advanced options, Host routing table (8520 and OS5 models)
  •  Options, Device, Advanced options, Host routing table

Then press menu (the 7 dot button on your BlackBerry) and click “register now”

Once you’ve received the service books all you need to do is go to setup, email accounts, to add emails accounts.

On pre pay text the following to register:

Meteor: register for the Service by sending ‘My blackberry’ to short code 50104

eMobile: Freetext ‘start blackberry’ to 50104

O2: Text NET  to 50231 to get 700mb data add-on for 9.99 renewed monthly. Once that’s confirmed  text BLACK to 50231 to get the BIS add-on

Vodafone: Text “BlackBerry” to 50222 to opt-in
