Relatively new 8700g owner here. I am on BIS and the only email I check is Gmail. I am going to be a poor student soon, so I want to find a workaround for checking my gmail without subscribing to a blackberry plan, and hopefully will save myself some money. I really like the Blackberry's calendar, address book, and browser features, so I can do without push for the time being.
Here are the methods I've thought of:
-using m.gmail.com on my browser. anyone know how to assign a convenience key to go directly to this page?
-using the Gmail mobile application, which can be slow and unreliable
-having gmail push messages via SMS (ie
) - unfortunately SMS messages are limited in size. anyone know how to set up a rule so that gmail only forwards the first x characters of an email?
I will probably subscribe to Tmobile web which is $6 instead of $20 for the blackberry plan. Thoughts?
