Default Any chance to setup Gmail as a default email client

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all, completely read down all the topics and didn't find anything about emails on non BES devices, here in Russia, we don't have BB services cause of stupid gov. security rules, so my only chance to use my BOLD not only a phone is a 3rd party email clients like Gmail, LogicMail and others, so I have two issues:

1. Didn't find any useful POP3 email client, all I tried freeware or not, is totally SUX, can't save letters to MicroSD, can't read Russian Fonts (only Gmail can) can't customize folders, and many others things I like to be, is it really so bad situation with 3rd party clients? I even ready to pay for it

2. Is it somehow possible to make Gmail or any other clients like a default, in order to sent Card, Files, and not to look at this stupid window, you don't configured your email account, you can only save draft bla bla bla....

Thanks for help in advance, Max

You can use Gmail as your mail client through BIS. Here is the FAQ on BIS:
BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ

Also look at the Gmail instructions here:
BlackBerry Internet Service - Help Center

Hello John, thanks

First link interesting, but useless cause I don't have Vodafone email account (it's not recognizing my device by PIN and IMEI, that was bought in Italy)

Second link useful when your bold already activated, mine isn't think because we don't have any support from carriers here for BB devices.
