Question Pop v. Forwarding

Please Login to Remove!

I am currently using POP access for Gmail. I may want to use simple forwarding instead to avoid associated charges for polling. My question is do I have to delete my gmail account with BIS or just disable pop and enable Forwarding instead?

Associated charges for polling? What would those be. If you have a data plan, it covers POP. I have been using POP for my Gmail since I got my BB 2 years ago and never have had an issue with "associated charges".

Why do you think there would be extra charges if you dont mind me asking ( I am not trying to make you look foolish, just curious)

I forwarded my gmail to my cing/bb email address, tested it, it worked. Then went to my BIS acct and deleted my gmail from there.

ps. you will get you mail MUCH faster by forwarding.

I just updated that page for BIS 2.0 info. The gmail info did not really change.
