Default How advanced is the internet browsing

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking into the blackberry cingular 7290 but I have a couple of questions.

First, I have a gmail account. Now if I forward the gmail automatically to my cingular, I would have to constantly keep deleting my mails to keep space free for incoming mail, right? How many megs will the cingular email account hold? Or if I do POP, does it have the same restriction?

Also, I want to get a feel for how advanced the browser on the blackberry is. Will I be able to log into etrade/charles schwab and look up stock quotes and trade through the blackberry?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a gmail account also (THANKS DAWG!) and what I do is forward all my PoP email to gmail which then forwards directly to my BB. That way I get the spam protection from gmail which is great. I download all my mail on my laptop from gmail. It's pretty much invisible to people who email me although when I send email from Outlook it shows my gmail address, but the reply comes back to my regular email.

For your first question, I'm not sure exactly what you are asking. You will need to delete emails from you BB and webclient as space is limited. I am on Nextel and get 18 meg of space on my BWC, I'm not sure what Cingular gives you. But, if you are using gmail to forward your emails, you will still have a copy there if you ever need it. It won't matter whether you forward or pop, you'll have to delete stuff from your webclient or it will fill up.

As for forwarding or pop, I think the jury is still out, haha. Some people notice a delay of as much as 15 minutes when they pop. The BWC goes out periodically and checks your pop mail account and gets the messages and pushes them to you. I never noticed more than a 3 or 4 minute delay myself but maybe I was just lucky. I can say however that using forwarding I do get the messages almost instantly, within a few seconds.

As for the browser ... It's not too bad. It's not a full browser, and it doesn't show frames, you will have to select which frame you want to view. I've been able to log in to just about any website I have tried, however remember the speed isn't the fastest, I would guess it's around 19.2k. Usable if you need it. WAP sites will load much quicker as they are optimized for the BB.

Hope that helps a little!

Cingulars blackberry webclient size limit is being expanded to 25MB as we speak and as long as have fowarding options for gmail you can have them fowarded to your mycingular.blackberry.net address.
