For many Blackberry users, a Blackberry's value as an email messaging device is just as high as its use as a phone. You can make access to Gmail on your Blackberry faster and easier by putting a shortcut to Gmail directly on your Blackberry's home screen. The shortcut will connect you directly to Gmail's mobile web interface via the Blackberry browser. The web interface will allow you to use Gmail's advanced features such as starring and archiving messages from your Blackberry.
Open your Blackberry's web browser from the "Home" screen.
Press the "Menu" button and select "Go To..." to access the address bar.
Type Gmail's web address into the address bar and press "Enter."
Log in to your Gmail account with your account name and password.
Press the Blackberry's "Menu" key and select "Add to Home Screen." You can now access the Gmail web interface by selecting its icon from Blackberry's "Home" screen.
