I think that this must be a common issue, but I haven't found a clear solution.
I have a new Torch. I want to use it with my company's BES email/calendar/etc., and with my personal gmail account, also with calendar, contacts, etc. I would love to have the two integrated, so that I can go to a single spot/app to read and reply to all my mail, but that is not critical. I'd like to have my new email and upcoming calendar appointments show up in the notification summary at the top of my screen.
I've tried the things that I thought would work, and seemed obvious. I configured my corporate BES and gmail as email accounts, and turned on all the synchronizations. When I read email on the gmail web interface, the fact that my notes are read doesn't make it to the Blackberry. I tried the gmail app. It's fast, but doesn't provide notification, nor calendar access. I've tried running Google Sync. I've added my Google calendar to the Blackberry calendar app. Sometimes email and appointments propagate across my accounts and devices.
Is there a standard solution? How does everyone else configure their Blackberries to handle gmail and corporate email simultaneously?
