    Hello all ...quick question. Does one work better than the other or is one more preferable than the other. I set my gmail account up in BIS and I have the gmail app seems like a duplication to me. Any thoughts?

    Thanks in Advance

    Hello and welcome to CB.

    You'll find that if you look around (and use the search feature), you'll likely find the answers you're looking for without having to post a redundant question.

    Here are two existing threads that should give you more insight.

    Just to answer your question anyhow, I use BIS Gmail and find it to work great.

    I also use BIS Gmail and not the app.

    I just wish that IMAP worked correctly.

    I recommend you use both. Gmail IMAP via BIS gives you push (so you'll get your emails near instantaneously) and better copy&paste support, whereas the app allows you to browse through older emails and and search through all your emails.

    Yes I have noticed that..The BIS is just short of instanious. The app lags behind.

    Thanks for input..!

    I prefer the app. I can't stand the emails on my BB and my inbox not being consistent. The lag from the app doesn't bother me, its usually pretty quick to deliver email.

    On a quick note I have to say that I love my Storm... after having the 8830 for two years. I looked at the Tour today and dd not care for it at all..OBTW all three that I held and looked at, the battery door on back had a very poor fit. The display seemed so small also..

    Does true IMAP work with the app?

    I am getting tired of deleting emails on BIS and my laptop.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I use both. I usually use BIS unless I need to look for an email that it is not saved in my phone, then I use the Gmail app.
