    yes users still have gmail accounts at least I know I do, and I just set mine up back in oct. But as for how to do it for someone in the uk...that I don't know. Does it really matter?

    BB Pin me, or send me an email, and tell me the username and password you want for your @gmail.com address. My pin is 205064C7 and my email is aang@rogers.blackberry.net.

    I dimly remember some lawsuit over the name "Gmail" in the UK. It had already been trademarked by someone else. Why they didn't just sell it to The Big G for a large stack of cash mystifies me.

    Anyway, I have plenty of Gmail invites to spare. PM me if you (or anyone else) wants one.

    Thanks for offer of invites guys but unfortunately even if you have a Gmail invite then google checks your I.p address and defaults to googlemail!
    So frustrating!
    Thanks anyway,I've even tried using a proxy I.p to do it but google recognises it and thinks its a spam email being set up!the only way I can think of doing it is if someone sets it up for me!
    Thanks guys

    Hey guys
    Didnt you know that even with an @googlemail.com address, sending it to @gmail.com also works
    for example
    sending something to dusk@googlemail.com is the same as sending it to dusk@gmail.com.
    i use gmail like that, and it works fine for me
