    As if this horse hasn't been beaten enough, high off the BIS 3.0 announcement, I rushed to register my Gmail account through BIS (was using the Gmail app before), hoping that the sync issue would finally be resolved (which it is as of last weekend, according to multiple blogs).

    Well, it's not resolved. Neither read status nor message deletions are synced from the web client to the device, even after as long an hour.

    Is it possible that Sprint hasn't rolled out 3.0 yet?

    The RIM release regarding the GMail features associated with BIS 3.0 indicated that those features would be rolled out region by region. It's the first thing mentioned in the release.

    - As in; please stop expecting us to actually implement anything in a timely fashion, or have the common sense to do something imap has provided years ago.

    Hi, thought I'd check in since it's now September of 2011, and I have bought yet another "top-of-the-line" Blackberry device (9930) since the last post.

    Ahem, still no HTML in Gmail app and no read status syncing for Gmail in BIS, i.e. Gmail users are still unwelcome on Blackberry. It just boggles my mind, RIM.

    I'll write again next year, bye.
