Am I missing something? What is the advantages or disadvantages to the way I do it vs setting up a BIS Gmail account?
if i were you, i would not forward your Gmail to your Blackberry email address. your sent messages are not saved to your Gmail, so if you ever hop onto your computer, you have no record of anything you have ever sent.
Just add Gmail as an email account on blackberry. there is no delay with Gmail...email arrives instantly just like with a blackberry email account.
Give it a try.
