i just started using the gmail app on my 8130 and i cant get any type of ringtone/vibrate notification.
in the gmail app, i've gone to menu > more > settings, then checked the last box to notify me when there is new mail
then in my profile > adv. options > normail (acitve) > Gmail - new mail, out of holster is set to tone, i have the ring tone that i want selected, and the volume is on medium
its the same if i'm actually in the applicaiton, or not. i still have my gmail active through the BIS (and those alerts work fine), but would that matter? the mail arrives in the gmail app fine (within 5-10 minutes of being sent), but nothing happens. the icon does update letting me know, and as lazy as this sounds, i dont want to have to pull my phone out of my pocket and look at the screen everytime i want to see if i have new email.
