    I don't know about BIS 2.1, but some of the features listed work with Cingular. I can now open at least some PDF and Doc files from the Browser, which never worked before. I am still using BIS 1.8 on Cingular. Try a Register Now and see if the features you want work. I don't think the Icons are there yet though.

    Hope this helps.

    Have you tried, doing the Register Now on the Host Routing Table? Or deleting and reinstalling your Gmail account on BIS 2.x to see if it works. I'm on Cingular 1.8 but I got the Internet Browser PDF/Docs capability recently after doing a Register Now..

    Hope this helps
