Please Login to Remove!

I have both hotmail and gmail on my bb. I keep recieving my hotmail emails like 30 mins later. But for my gmail account, I get the emails right away. Does anyone know why?

Gmail is better. No just kidding, gmail has some integration with BB so the delivery is almost instant.

Default Gmail help

I'm a long time Hotmail user. My blackberry sucks with Hotmail. It will download fine however it doesn't sync with changes that I make in outlook and vise versa on the bberry. i've started using gmail and like it better in that it's instant and easy to read, however is there anyway to see the classic email chain-instead of conversations that are all lumped together?

I use both hotmail and gmail on my 8900 and both work fine. I also have both going to Outlook on my PC and they seem to sync perfectly also.

I would say (what you have said) the opposite way around, only if you have a WM5 or WM6 device

I've used gmail for nearly 5 yrs and love it. My understanding has been that you could only forward your gmail emails to your blackberry.net address rather than have your BB (I use BIS) check your gmail acct automatically. Is this correct?
