BIS 2.3 launches today? Yahoo, Gmail now push

17 Comments

Thumbs UpWord on the street is that RIM is launching an upgrade for their BIS (BlackBerry Internet Service) customers today carrier-wide. BIS 2.3 will apparently offer improved syncing with Yahoo! Mail and Gmail. How improved? We’re talking full on real-time push email for both, ladies and gents.

This is great news for any non-BES BlackBerry user, as well as BES users who like to rock Gmail whilst they work. Our little tipster also told us that BIS 2.3 will allow users to accept/decline wireless meeting requests, as well as offer improved email forwarding from your “carrier.blackbery.net” account. The future is now, people!

    How do we know if we’re at 2.3 now? I don’t see anything different on the BIS at https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=vzw

    Some carriers are slower than others, and I would bet some users would have to call in and get them to delete your account and recreate it for 2.3.

    Instant delivery of GMail and Yahoo account emails is nothing new. There is knowledge base article from RIM which was published end of last year: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB10272&sliceId=SAL_Public&dialogID=19500883&stateId=1%200%2019504565
