    gmail & my pearl

    Advertisement



    i just got this pearl a few days ago..it's my first blackberry, and so far i'm loving it. one thing i'm wanting to change though is the way my email is setup. i just found google's free program on gmail.com/app, but now it doesn't alert me if i have a new email. i tried messing with the gmail program's settings, but they are extremely limited and i didn't see anything about notifications. basically i just want to have a different sound for emails, and some kind of visual notification on my desktop (or whatever you call it on a blackberry, idk)

    TIA,
    brian

    my first post

    First Welcome to the stacks Brian,

    And for google, instead of using the Gmail appz, I would suggest you to get a BIS account from your provider. I don't know which provider you are using but to find your BIS just make, from a CPU, a google search about blackberry internet service (your provider) and create an account with your gmail information

    Hope this helps

    You can go into the sound profiles and customize them (or create more).

    Click on the icon that looks like a speaker or megaphone and scroll down to Advanced, select a profile and then press the menu button and select Edit... you can then change the sound for each event (email, sms, pin, call etc)

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well I think its like messages from important sources and unless you specified otherwise, pin messages will be level 1 and appear in red in your inbox.
