Hi Everybody,

Before I activate my iPhone, I'd be very appreciative if someone would walk me through setting up my Gmail on the phone. I already have a Gmail account, and just need someone to explain setting it up on the iPhone like I'm a six year old. (I'm not the most computer literate !) Please explain step by step if it's not too much trouble. Thanks in advance ! Cheers !

Actually, the iPhone walks you through the Gmail set-up. Provided you know your username and PW, you'll be fine.

First if you don't want to receive all your OLD OLD emails to the iPhone you have to goto gmail then click settings on the top right...
Next goto Forwarding and POP ..
Choose Enable POP and only emails from now on - Click Apply...
Goto your iPhone .. settings... mail ... add new account .. gmail
enter your info and you should be good.

Gmail

First thing you need to do is enable your GMail account for POP access.

Log in to your GMail account

Click on Setting (upper right corner of screen)

Click on Fowarding and POP link

Enable POP email. (Choose one of the two choices)

Click Save


After the iPhone has been activated, turned on, and you are looking at the home screen with all the colorful icons.

Touch the Settings icon (lower right)

Touch the Mail tab at bottom of screen (no scrolling)

Touch Add Account

Touch GMail

Type in your name (this is how it will appear to those you email)

Type in your address

Type in your password

Touch Save

Push the Home button at bottom of iPhone

Touch the Mail icon at bottom left of screen

Touch your GMail account

Touch your Inbox

You should receive e-mail now
