Default Slow GMail....

Please Login to Remove!

I've noticed that GMail has slowed down in the last week or two. It's now anywhere between 3 and 10 minutes for GMail to be pushed to my device whereas it used to be nearly instant.

Anyone else noticing this? I don't usually worry about it that much as it does slow down once in a while but it's been a week or two now and was wondering if everyone is seeing it or just me.

I have noticed some slow down as well. It is getting close to the same speed as my companies POP3.

I just sent a test email to my gmail account from one of my other accounts and I got the email within 30 seconds on my BB. I noticed it was slower a couple days ago, but yesterday and today it seems to be back to normal.

Gmail has not been consistent for the past month. One day it's instant then the next day it can take hours.

A BB user without a Gmail account??? That's like, well....you should get one. Although, right now it's not much better than any of the others. Spam filters are good, though.

Yes, that's an option for instant email. However, you can't delete on the handheld and mailbox when you do it that way. You'll have to go in and clean out your GMail mailbox much more frequently. Also, the @Blackberry addresses can be prone to spam. I had one when I first got my BB but it started getting spammed even though I only used it for forwarding and never gave the address to anyone. I deleted it.

I had one of my hosted domains w/google and moved it to godaddy because of the inconsistant gmail/google push. No problems since.
