Gmail Issues - delivery receipt

I setup a gmail account and then setup my work email in the settings -> accounts and import. The reply is setup to use works email, but for some reason if someone attached a delivery receipt in outlook both the works ISP and gmail send delivery receipt emails. The issue is that the gmail account sends the delivery email using the gmail account.

I don't want our customers knowing my gmail account.

This issue does not happen with the Droid Gmail App.

I have a few Storm 1 questions on the TMo Network

I don't have the phone in hand as of yet but, have already called TMo to make the changes needed to my plan. I'm not a BB user and most of my phones have been older Windows based phones. I will probably get the Touch Pro2 later in the year when price comes down. I just wanted to know if anyone could pass along any tips and or tricks to help me along the learning process. Biggest concern is the OS. I have read the forum and seen that there are many "glitches" in firmware updates and wanted to know if anyone knew how a TMo customer could get ahold of firmware updates? Also, any software recommendations would be appreciated as well. What works well with this phone?
Thanks in advance.

Unlock Code

I got a great deal on a Verizon BB Storm, that was unlocked to accept a T-Mobile Sim Card. I am with AT&T, and work for AT&T but I am thoroughly confused. It's obvious this phone can be used for both CDMA and GSM networks. What numbers do I need from the phone to get the unlock code? I know for GSM phones it's the imei number and you can get that by pressing #*06*, but it doesn't work on this handset. Any answers or links to where I can figure out how to unlock this?

Software Update - LOST ICONS!!

Ok so my problem isn't so dramatic, but I think it is lol

I FINALLY did the software upgrade this morning and for the most part, I love it! However, I don't see the icon for my EMAIL! Just to let you know, I have my "msn.com" account linked to my Storm 1 ... I went to my Email settings and started all over again, but still no EMAIL icon Crying or Very sad I am still getting emails, but they are going to my MESSAGES folder.

Again, I am making this more dramatic than it really is, but I find it pretty annoying LOL!! Has this happened to anyone? Any suggestions on what I can do to get the EMAIL icon/folder back???

software update question

my friend is using the storm 1 and hes not very savvy so he asked my help but i am stuck. he did the software upgrade that verizon offered to do that makes the storm 1 like the storm 2, (fixing the lagging and keyboard issues). he did the upgrade but now some interesting things are happening. when a contact sms's him, if they are a bbm contact it comes under bbm and not sms/mms. its the weirdest thing. if the same person sends an mms msg it comes under sms/mms. i tried everything, and i even called my friend that did the upgrade and she says that she doesn't have that problem. just for giggles i went under the bbm options and removed the link between the bbm and blackberry contact and that didn't work either. anyone know what to do? Confused

Love my new Storm2!

Ok. So I have been used and abused by the 9530 since Nov 21st of 2008. I have had 6 of them and all of them were replaced by VZW no questions asked.

I am a very heavy user with 4 emails being pushed, facebook, aim, google talk, and poynt as my primary apps that I use and use OFTEN.

Honestly, I really didnt think there would be a big difference btw the 2 but it is a night and day experience for me. I was a very fast typer on the 9530 and didnt think there was anything wrong with the last screen, but I thoroughly enjoy the new screen (and I didnt think I would after playing with the device for 5 min in the store).

I even tried the Imagio for 2 weeks but I couldnt handle it for typing and I did miss the BB world/bbm despite old interfa...

Crippled Wi-Fi!

The Storm2 is a really nice phone! Sharp screen, easy to type on, both in landscape and protrait mode, fast, and feels really well built. Until you want to access your emails via wi-fi!

I spent two days with VZW data support, dlink, and even Blackberry support & guess what? The only way you can access any Blackberry services is through the VZW mobile network!

Apparently the only thing VZW allows on wi-fi is browsing the internet (oh joy!) and LAN hookups for printers, etc. I have had other wi-fi Blackberries; in Eurpoe and Asia and just like it says in the BB manual- once they are hooked up to wi-fi, all BB services are available (emails, etc). Not on VZW! WTF??

I was willing to shell out full retail for this beauty, as I have cu...

First Impressions on the New One

I've had a chance to play around with my Storm 2 for a day, and compare it to the original. Not a great deal of difference. The 2, of course is built with a tighter fit and more stable tolerance design. For example, there's less play in the function buttons to invoke a field. The display surface is improved around the edges. It is actually easier to dial a number on the Storm1 (easier to press the screen), however.

The major upgrade appears to be WiFi and expanded memory. My themes, other than stock Zen, do not fill the screen in landscape on either build (5.0) problem, but that's a developer issue. With all the hoopla about a better typing experience.....big hands are big hands! The Qwerty still suffers from a small footprint and...
