View Full Version : Need Help, New To Blackberry

09-16-2006, 09:12 AM
Hi All,

I have some pretty silly questions, but I am new to having a BlackBerry.

I have just got an 8700g in the UK on O2 from work and it is connected to the work BES V4.1.

Is there anyway that I can also configure the handheld so I can get my gmail emails coming through to me?

Thanks All

You can configure gmail to forward to an email address.

I have mine forwarded to [myname] @<hidden>

But you can forward it to the email address you have from your BES.

You should also be able to go to the O2 website and add the gmail account there, no? But, forwarding the gmail to your O2 blackberry device email address might be the best option. You'd get the email instantly...

What do I actually have to do on the Blackberry to set this up?

I want it to appear as a seperate icon on the Blackberry?

How do I get an email address from the o2 website?

Also does anyone have a link to the o2 UK BIS site?

Okay, so I have now signed up with o2 Blackberry Internet Email.

I have configured a new account which is myname@<hidden> and it has created a new icon on my berry.

But when I send an email to this account it goes to both my normal work (bes) mail icon and the new myname@<hidden> icon.

How can I make it so it only goes to the myname@<hidden> icon?

Also my company pay for my blackberry which is a business account so they pay 28 per month which is unlimited blackberry data, so if i have got my personal myname@<hidden> setup on here as well does that get included in the 28 per month?

Sorry for all the stupid questions.
