Now i have mutiple gmail accounts right now, would i set up each one of those to fwd to the BB using that method or should i just fwd all the others to one account and if so can i still have it so that the original email address is the one that is seen when i send...sorry if that doesnt make sense. I read Stinson's website and i think i get how thats set up, obviously its much harder because i dont actually have the thing in front of me. One last question if anyone is familiar with tmobile, can i just sign up for email and internet and not get a voice plan? i already have a cell with verizon and i love the service and i dont care about carrying two.
Sorry one last question what are the advantages of having the 8700g over the 7290? I really just want basic email and internet along with the organizing functions so the 7290 seems cheap. Does the 7290 not allow for downloading an office type program or aim to it?
I have an 8700 with T Mobile in NYC, and to answer some of your questions:
1. You can set up the free yahoo account to be pushed through BIS on tmobile. All you have to do is set up the account over the web on the mytmobile website, or you can do it over the air on your device. It will get pushed instantly. I am currently running this on my device
2. You can have all those gmail address forwarded however you like. If you are forwarding them all to your
address, you can only really choose for the recipient to see one "reply to" address. You won't be able to have all four as a "reply to" unless you set them all up individually on the device through pop (in which case you will only be polling at every 15 minutes. I think I am right about this, but if anyone reading knows a better way, please chime in.
3. You can have just a data and email plan on tmobile. That is what I had when I started, and then I moved my phone plan onto the device after I got tired of carrying around two devices. It took about two weeks for me to make that decision.
Hope that helps.
