I tested the recently released GMail for mobile application, a java program for your phone to connect to what is probably the world’s best e-mail service, and I couldn’t get it to work. Up to now, hours after I installed it, the phone still can’t open my inbox and I only get a screen that says “loading.”
The installation went fine. I went to gmail.com/app and I was prompted to download the program. I clicked on download Gmail and the program was downloaded in just a few minutes, at such a cheap GPRS rate at 10 pesos.
I promptly entered my username and password. It was torture doing so using the phone keypad as I use a 30-character password. When I clicked on sign in, the phone screen just displayed loading. I waited for several minutes before exiting the application and opening it again, still no luck.
