You MOST DEFINITELY could have the IMAP set-up for bb and Gmail - I had it for a while before the 2.6 was rolled out. And I'm almost sure that the sync was 2-way (although I would not bet my life on it). JSylvia007 seems to agree on both these point (read few previous posts in this thread).
But why would Google NOT support IMAP for Blackberries is beyond me, especially since they had in the past...
