How to set GMAIL as any other email?

[ Edited ]

Hi guys,

 

When I'm trying to set my GMail account - I'm forced to use a GMail/Blackberry App that wants to manage my contacts and calendars. I don't want to share this information with Google.

 

I just want to access my emails like I do with all other email providers.

 

How can I do that?

 

Thanks

 

EDIT - Nevermind - Select IMAP setup instead of GMAIL and bingo.

Hello,

OR...accept that first Google-looking screen (which is merely the agreement to share data, but is NOT the actual screen that controls what data is shared), and then you will be presented with another screen which is where you actually select which specific services to sync (email, contacts, calendar).
