That's great! I just changed mine so that it gets forwarded to my personal account. The only question that remains now is whether Gmail will still deactivate your account if you don't login for a certain time period? Now that e-mail is being forwarded it seems unnecessary to login anymore.

Not sure; just set my gmail accounts I was playing with to forward though. Huzzah!

What this means is that if you want to forward all your email through gmail, you could have gmail's spam filtering scrub your messages and pass THOSE messages on to your bberry.

Not a bad idea for those without better options!

Has Gmail been released to the public or is it still being beta tested?

WOW ! Works great and almost instananeous forwarding. Does anybody know how to distinguish that it was forwarded through your GMAIL account when you look at your Blackberry to view the actual email you received ? Any help would be appreciated.
