    Hi, everyone!
    I have a couple of what might seem dumb questions, but I was always told the only stupid question is the one you don't ask. So here goes:

    1. What is gmail?
    2. I have AT&T for my BB account, and Verizon for my home phone. My desktop (Win2000) is connected to the Verizon DSL. So I am receiving my desktop email on the BB, complete with all the spam in the world. What do I do to get this to stop?
    3. Why does the LED alternately blink red then blue when I have the bluetooth on?

    Any help here would be appreciated!

    1. Google provided email. Has really good spam filter is free and works very nice. My favorite email by far. www.gmail.com It is by invite only, so pm me if you want to open an account. Also, gmail is real time push so your email is delivered instantly as opposed to being polled ever 10-15 minutes.
    2. Spam is hard to get rid of. You need an email account which has a good spam filter. Gmail's is excellent and I highly recommend it. You can forward you other email accounts to gmail and they will all get filtered before they go to the device.
    3. I have an older device which only blinks red, so I am not sure about this. But I would guess blue=bluetooth is on and red means you have a message waiting. Message notification can be changed under profiles.

    Post back if you have any further questions.

    Welcome, Shabbybrat.

    Yap, Gmail is just great. And it does have a great SPAM filter.

    Also, yes on the red and blue light. Red means you have an unread message and blue means bluetooth is currently active.

    Gmail is really awesome, I never get spam messages and have only ever had a few not spam messages go there and those were from forum reply notifications
