How to Setup Gmail on a Blackberry (OS 7)

1. Make sure you first get your Google Token. This will be the password used when prompted for setting up any of your mobile devices or email clients. 

1. On your Blackberry, locate and click on the Setup Icon.

2. On the Setup screen, locate and click on “Email Accounts”. 

3. If you already have an email address associated with your Blackberry ID, you might be prompted with the option of setting up this associated email address on your Blackberry.  If this associated email is not your Ryerson.ca email, then click on “Set up another email account”.  If you have no such email associated with your blackberry ID, continue to step 4.
