Can't set up Gmail on BB Curve

I'm going insane!  I'm trying to get gmail set up.  I downloaded the mobile app for gmail, but everytime I try to log in so I can actually create a gmail address, I keep getting the message "This program requires a working data connection.  Please check your signal strength."  My connection works fine for going anywhere else with the internet.  I googled this problem and it said something about service books.  So I logged on to my BB internet service account and "sent servicebooks".  That didn't work.

I recommend that you use a PC to create a Gmail account (and email address).  Then go into email setup on your BB Curve and setup your new address from there. Then you should be able to associate the account using the Gmail app.


FYI, service books are tied to the email address so if you did not have a Gmail address established there would have been no service book to update.
