My wife can send to the gmail address from her I830, and I can reply directly back to her using her nextel sms email address (what nextel didn't tell us) the sms address for nextel phones is:
(replace 5555551212 with the number you are text messaging) this works great for us.
If anyone else wants to try it out, PIN me and I'll set up a gmail invite for you. Make sure you send me your name and email address to set it up.
why do all of that when you can just use your blackberry email address if you are using BIS?
