I have my GMail forwarded right to my BB address (me@tmo.blackberry.net) - I don't need to view it via a browser...

I do the same NJ as do I think most BB users. It's easier just forwarding the gmail and your emails come through alot faster than polling through BIS. Thanks for the information though.

Cool

On the subject of mobile google:

Google SMS is brilliant. Send an SMS query to GOOGLE (46645) and you get a nearly instantaneous SMS reply for just about anything. Great for addresses, phone numbers, conversions, price lists...

http://www.google.com/sms/

I too am having a problem getting gmail on my Nextel 7100i and for the life of me I can't quite figure it out. It just says something to the fact that the invitation was invald.
Does anyone know what's going on, or know how to correct this issue?

all invites seem to be invalid lately.

also as far as nextel sms for google, use Berry 411 OR EDIT...


i just sent an MMS to GOOGLE (phone mms) with my 7100i and left the subject line blank. then i entered a search query in the body and about 20 seconds later i recieved a response from google with the results..

So there is no way to get gmail on my phone, or do I just do the work around (411, ect)?

411 is not a workaround for Gmail.... it is the alternative for Google-SMS queries

Gmail is Regular email. i only mentioned that a lot of people were having issues lately with invites not being valid. worse, the account gets created but with no gmail...

I've sent out invites from my Gmail account recently and they have been valid and the accounts were created. Are you just speaking of gmail accounts that are created via the mobile phone? If someone wants an invite, I have lots of them. Feel free to email and I'll send it to you.

It must have just been too many people trying to access the system.
