I am going to post this in both an iPad forum and a blackberry forum, but figured i would do it here first since everyone looks so darn friendly.
My brand loyalty to mobile devices is all over the place. I use an iPad for pretty much everything web surfing and media related, but a blackberry (BIS) as my personal cell phone for talking, texting and personal email. When I got my iPad I set up an exchange account for my gmail, and syncing between the iPad and all my computers (home and work, pc and Mac), works great.
Unfortunately my blackberry is being pretty stubborn. Whenever I receive an email to my gmail account, which usually happens more or less at the same time on both the blackberry and the iPad, unless i open it on the blackberry first, it will show up as an unread message on my home screen even though there are no unread messages in my blackberry inbox. If i delete a new message from my iPad, it gets deleted on my blackberry as well, but the new message indicator never goes away. What that translates to is more or less reconciled inboxes between the two devices, but a new message indicator that is completely out of whack (currently at 2 on my iPad vs. 14 on my blackberry). No amount of restarts or battery pulls will get rid of the indicator. Obviously this is more of a minor inconvenience than it is a real problem, but it does have me pretty curious.
Anybody experienced this and have any advice? Should I just hightail it over to a blackberry forum, since this looks to be more of a blackberry issue than anything else?
Thanks for reading.
