    There was one thing that I could always rely on with my Blackberry: emails to arrive on the device within seconds.

    This is no longer the case. It sometimes takes forever until I can see the beloved red light. Some emails do not arrive at all. Some arrive fast, as usual. I don't know why, can't find a pattern on which ones come through smoothly and which ones don't. There is no change in behaviour when being on WiFi or on 3G in different locations, reception quality strong and sufficient. Sometimes, "old" emails which were not delivered, are getting delivered when a new one arrives. Has anyone made similar experiences?

    I have: a 9900 with a not too old SW version installed ( Synching mail, calendar, contacts with my Gmail account, which worked very well in this configuration, up until a few weeks ago. I did not consciously change anything on my BB.
    I tried: several reboots, battery pulls, deleted all accounts, re-configured the Gmail account, etc.

    The synching of contacts and calendar items seems to work as usual. Outgoing emails seem to get shipped instantly.

    Help! I can't survive with not knowing if emails will be delivered to me at all, and if yes, when.

    The problem seems to be hitting all carriers but confined to gmail only. Other BIS emails are working fine, but my test to gmail had almost exactly 3 hour delay between sending/delivered onto the google server, and landing on my phone.

    With all the other recent google actions against competitors a doubting mind could easily suspect this delay is a deliberate action by Google.

    Is this only to people that have upgraded to the latest software release/bundle?

    Running the latest BL Hybrid with .794 base and .714 .sfi

    Just sent myself a test message on my laptop and it arrived on the 9900 before it hit the laptop, so no problem for me in the UK on Vodafone.

    I'm also running the latest (Xmas edition) BL hybrid .794 base/.714 sfi. On Telus, Ontario, Canada. No issues here, either.

    Missed this thread. I am in Brunei and I am seeing up to 5 hours delay in gmail delivery. All other services are running well (BBM, whatsapp, facebook, etc). Since it seems to be a gmail relates issue, is there some way we can raise this issue to Google and / or RIM?

    Possibly a regional issue? I just check both of mine, and received every email my browser shows to my inbox, and all marked the same time. Then tested both multiple times, with instant returns.

    In my case, the problem started a while back when GMAIL had an outage (Somewhere in the beginning of Dec 2012). The delivery delay has been on and off (for me) since then. There were talks of Google shifting servers / server maintenance etc to resolve the issue. So it may just be SOME email ids. Again - just an assumption.

    I've had no issues with any email accounts on my phone; both Gmail and Hotmail. I honestly think it's Google messing with competitors. I've noticed that Google Maps doesn't find my location lots of the time lately but when I open BB Maps it finds me within meters of my actual location within seconds.

    Had problems here - not software related or carrier related.

    Gmail has been having BIS issues. Push was not working over the last few days. As of this morning I got all of my automated emails at the correct time so it looks to be ok again at the moment.

    I'm not sure this is even Blackberry related. My friend with her iPhone was having exactly the same issues.

    Ok so I have this problem as well. Started in December.
    Ultimately I would delete the gmail account but I want it to sync my google calendar to my BB calendar.

    Is there a way to delete the gmail account on my BB but still have the calendars sync?

    Just go to email setup on your phone, move over your gmail account and press menu and select filters. Then choose do not forward messages to the device and save. Now you'll have calendar sync but no email arrival or try this:
