Default gmail app not showing up on tour

Please Login to Remove!

hey all,

i got a tour for christmas for an early college graduation present, running on sprint.

my college uses gmail for its mail system, and i actively use the gmail labeling features. HOWEVER, despite the fact that every single time i've set up my account i get the gmail app "confirmation" email, no gmail type settings or apps appear on my phone; the messages are in that yucky standard blackberry setting.

when i go into my applications folder under advances options, the gmail is installed.

how do i activate it so that all my messages are "gmail" rather than "blackberry" style?

thanks!

You loaded with http://google.com/mail?

If so, look in your downloads folder which is on your home screen

nothing in the downloads folder. just can see it when i access the "applications" to delete something.

edit: should also mention that, when i try to reinstall, i am reminded that i already have gmail installed on my bb.

Click menu-show all and look at home screen. If not there, look in all folders. If not there, reinstall again which will overwrite the item.

You cant delete it off card? Battery pull did not suffice?
