Setting up Gmail on any Apple iPhone
The iPhone is a great phone, but if you are a big user of Google services, can be a little confusing to set up your account Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Contacts to synchronize with IOS. The default method is not good. This is the best way to do it.
This is the best way to get everything up and running quickly. If you want a more effective for your calendars (not to mention options Google voice, Google Maps, etc.) more detailed method, consult our guide for iOS Google and live in perfect harmony.
You can get all the synchronization of Google services (with sync button, ie grow messages to your phone as soon as you receive them) with IOS by creating a single account. The trick is to select Microsoft Exchange to drive instead of Gmail. This will give you access to Gmail, but not only in their calendars and contacts, and all will be synchronized directly to your phone when a contact in Gmail add or edit an event in Google Calendar, they will appear on your phone without having to synchronize nothing. To do this:
- Open the Settings app on your iOS device and go to “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”. Click “Add Account”.
- From there, select Microsoft Exchange as the account type (again, do not choose Gmail).
- Please enter your email in Gmail. Leave the Domain field blank and enter your full Gmail address in the username (including @ gmail.com, @ googlemail.com or another suffix). Enter your password and give you everything you want descriptions. Mine is simply called “Gmail”.
- Click the Next button at the top of the screen. It should display a message that says can not verify the certificate, if it does, simply click Cancel. Then type in the new box m.google.com “Server” which appears at the top of the screen. Then tap Next.
From there, you should be all set. You can activate Mail, contacts and calendar synchronization from the Settings page that appears. Note that pressing the trash icon in Mail file a message, not eliminate it altogether. If you want to remove, you can hit the folder icon and select Trash from the menu to move it to the trash.
