Help to setup gmail to my BB Bold

I have done the email setup form tmobile website (mytmobile dot com) I added the gmail in there. what do I have to do next ? how do I setup from the Bold ? which Icon on the Bold do I use to setup the gmail so I can access to gmail w/o using web browser.

When I have new mail, does the Bold notify there is mail or not ? or I have to click on mail icon (which I dont know where the mail icon at) to check mail.

anyone please help

See if you get mail yet and report back here?

 

how do I setup from the Bold ? which Icon on the Bold do I use to setup the gmail so I can access to gmail w/o using web browser.  You should not have to do so if you set it up as you described above

Yes, it will, on screen and audibly if you set your Profiles to alert you.

 

or I have to click on mail icon (which I dont know where the mail icon at) to check mail.

Your email icon will appear once the BB has been provisioned to the BIS account you have from Tmobile.

You did actually subscribe a BlackBerry Data Plan, right?


Goodl luck!

You need more than TZones, call Tmobile and ask about the BlackBerry Data Plan.

Re: Help to setup gmail to my BB Bold

Yes because any BB communicates with the blackberry servers which run more efficiently instead of depending on your carrier for all data usage. Those servers cost $$ to run.
