Getting Gmail messages on your cell phone

Posted on October 16, 2009


Devices like the iPhone and Android make it easy to connect your gmail account to your cell phone.

But some devices make it a little difficult to get your email messages sent to a built-in cell phone email client.

The Official Gmail Blog has a ton of info for people who wish to get people to have access to your Gmail on your phones.

Many mobile devices come with native mail applications pre-installed. Setting up Gmail to work with them is usually pretty straight-forward and there is often a wizard to help. If you have an iPhone or Windows Mobile device, you can get push Gmail using Google Sync. Otherwise, you can set things up using IMAP with these step-by-step directions for specific devices. Depending on your particular phone, you may notice features such as search, conversations, and stars missing. On the plus side, these applications tend to start up quickly and work even when you’re not connected to the internet.
