| | BIS v BES gmail and internet speeds
Please Login to Remove!
First of all, thank you for the forums - they have been an extraordinary help.
I recently switched from my employer's BES to a personal BIS account. I am very unsatisfied with the speed in which my blackberry pushes gmail messages (occasionally within a few minutes, but more often 40+minutes, sometimes 1hr+), and the lag with internet browsing.
Unfortunately I have made many changes, so I am not entirely sure the cause of these issues. For example:
I switched units (8800 to 8300).
I switched carriers (ATT to Tmo).
Like I said, I went from BES to BIS.
I went from an ATT phone on ATT service, to an ATT phone unlocked on Tmo service.
I went from the latest OS to the o2 OS required for the unlocked curve.
I have done all the tricks cited on these boards to no avail (wiping, hard resets, reregistering, deleting service books, sending service books, deleting bis email account, recreating bis email account, etc.).
In theory, now that it is just my personal email, I can live with the non-instantaneous push (and yes, I at times use the Gmail app) --- but it seems to defeat the whole purpose of the blackberry - and, quite frankly, I got spoiled with it before.
I was hoping to not have to get a BES account -- its not worth it to get my notes/calendar/contacts pushed -- but do I need a BES account to fix the email push and browser speed issues?
Sorry for the long email, and thanks for the help.
