How to set up iCloud email, contacts & calendar on a BlackBerry Z10 smartphone


If you use iCloud for email, contacts and calendar access, follow the steps below to add these services to your BlackBerry Z10. Once you have iCloud set up on your Z10 you can send and receive email as well as synchronize your contacts and calendar wirelessly.

Adding an iCloud account to a BlackBerry Z10

From the Home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen
Select Settings > Accounts
If this is the first email or social networking account you are setting up, select Email, Contacts or Calendar
If you have other email or social networking accounts set up already, select Add Account, then select the type of account you want to add.
Enter your iCloud.com account login credentials and tap Next
Optionally change additional settings such as synchronization preferences for your iCloud.com contacts and calendar
Tap Done.

If you are unable to add your account using the steps above, follow the steps below to integrate your email address, contacts and/or calendar stored in iCloud.com onto your smartphone.
