    I have posted up a how-to article on my website because right now I am at work and cannot connect to any hosts to put images up and do it here... so for everyone having issues validating your Gmail accounts on your BlackBerry, here's the solution I came up with after 2 weeks of tinkering.


    How to validate Gmail on your BlackBerry if it won't stop asking you! - Joe-Garcia.com

    P.S. If you have any questions or anything, please add my PIN in my user information and I will be more than happy to help you through BBM. Right now it is 3pm EST, I get off work at 5pm EST, so just keep that in mind if you start blasting me while I'm still here.

    Hi thank you for your article on how to stop gmail validation. Unfortunatly i am having the same issue and tried following your steps but its still asking me to validate. Hopefully you can help me as i have some questions.

    1. After enabling Advanced Imap Controls do i have to change any settings in "Forwarding And POP/Imap tab ?(step 3)

    2. Per your instructions it looks like all your doing is enabling advanced imap, then disabling the advanced imap to make it work.

    Please help me figure out the missing step so i can stop this annoying issue.

    THANKS !
