My phone had been having issues, so I backed up my data and reloaded the OS and removed all my applications. So now I'm going to install the apps I need and I come to find out that google no longer has the gmail app available although it was installed on my phone and working fine. I guess the app didn't get backed up when I redid my phone so is there anyway to download this from somewhere like an .alx or .ali file and get it back on my phone?

Thanks, but I don't think that file will do anything for me as it's too small to be an app.. as it only contains the following:
MIDlet-Description: Google Mail
RIM-COD-Size-1 : 41584
RIM-COD-Size-2 : 72712
RIM-COD-Size-3 : 84280
RIM-COD-Size-4 : 94268
RIM-COD-Size-5 : 92324
RIM-COD-Size-6 : 65604
Thank you so much.. I had tried the link from my laptop thinking it was a file I could install to the phone via application loader. Once I tried the URL in my phone it worked like a charm! Cool now I have Gmail app back once again!

You're welcome. That's the fileset I'm hosting in my dropbox.
Google really screwed the pooch here. My link has been hit over 20,000 times since I first posted it in November...and that's just the hits tracked by goo.gl

thanks for the app link, I have not finally got the app back but when i try to log in I get the following pop up error. Any ideas?
An unexpected error occurred during program execution. Please try your operation again.
Is there anyway I can get gmail back on my bb so that I recieve notifications on new mail to my gmail account?

None of that is really that important, though. What matters is you were able to get the Gmail app installed.

Thanks, am glad to have the gmail app back on changing phones.
Keep that site active please.
Basically the only thing that was missing from the generic 'envelope' was that I can't search for old emails on my blackberry without it. Is there a way of doing this without the gmail app, for example for other accounts? I will shortly be adding an 'ac.uk' and an nhs.net and another nhs account to the system.

Um, the search function does not work on my phone - any thoughts? I have put a link to the webpage on my front page (which works identically to the gmail app on my ipad - ie no push and a bit slow.) A working blackberry version was better than anything iphonish.
So I have now three different ways of accessing gmail, all better at different things. Sigh.

I downloaded the app and installed it on my bb 9220. I'm connected to internet via WI-FI.
When I started the app for the first time, i'm getting the error: "APN not specified"
