    Yahoo mail actually work much better than the gmail.

    Yahoo has better push mail ( almost instantaneously compare to 15-30 mins for Gmail), and also 2 way sync.
    When you read your mail in your BB or pc, it will automatically change the status of the email on the other side.

    Gmail does not have this yet.

    I used Yahoo Go for my Yahoo account, but then I don't use it that much. Good luck and come back if you have any questions!

    I have 2 Yahoo and 1 Gmail account. They both are about the same. I've heard from people in this forum that Gmail is the fastest, but I get Yahoo e-mails much faster than Gmail. Just think of a very original e-mail name and do both! That way you don't lose!

    As far as contacts being transferred to Yahoo or to your phone from Yahoo, their is a thing called Yahoo snyc, but I don't really like it. It doubled up all my contacts on my BB. Guess it's nice to have a second place for them to be stored in case my laptop gets wiped out or stolen or something.

    I will add that Yahoo is pushed much quicker than Gmail. Yahoo also has its little symbol on the envelope unlike the others

    I also have Yahoo! Go 3 which gives you much more than just your email!

    The GMail App does this quite well.

    I actually have a Yahoo account and Gmail account. I use the Gmail app and Yahoo is pushed to my BB (although I don't use it that much).

    I didn't like the Yahoo Go app. Too much memory.

    I agree with you on Yahoo Go3, used up a lot of memory.

    the 2 way sync does not work for Gmail ( or I don't know how to activate it )
    It only pushed the email.

    Could anyone tell me if Gmail has this ability yet?

    I use both and Gmail work better for me...

    Gmail is pushed instantly and my Yahoo checks mail every 5-10 min. Also I couldn't setup regular Y! account I need to get one with POP3 support...

    I have one Gmail and 3 yahoo accounts and would have to agree with the rest that yahoo is much better than gmail. But that is not a suprise since since their parent company is ATT, the largest BB carrier, from what I hear.

    I think this is reason. My provider is T-mobile Croatia and they don't support Y! unless you have Y! account with POP3...
