Default Cingular + BIS + gmail = problems

Please Login to Remove!

I'm having problems receiving gmail messages via BIS service.

Some messages are forwarded to my BB device some aren't. Very unreliable and inconsistent.

A lot of time when I login to my gmail account I see messages that I didn't receive on the BB device.

Any idea how to make receiving gmail messages more reliable?

Any help is appreciated.

There are more than one "BIS Service" and more than one way your GMail receiving can be configured in blackberry.

Do you use BIS 1.8 or BIS 2?
Do you receive GMail messages immediately or with 5-15 minutes interval?
Do you have forwarding configured from Gmail to your blackberry email address, or not?
