Also, there's no way to get an alert when you have a new message, if you're using the mobile app. The app icon doesn't change, there's no way to set the LED to blink, nothing. You have to check it manually to see if you have any messages.
In fact, the only thing you can do in the GMail mobile app that you can't do in "Messages" is that, if you click on a message to read it in the mobile app, it also shows up as read in your regular GMail inbox.
Thanks for the info. Sucks that the icon doesn't change to let you know you have a new message, but I do like that it would show as read in my inbox online. It doesn't matter anyway since it's not WORKING!!!!!!!!
