How to Get Gmail on iPhone
One of the coolest features of the iPhone and one of the ways in which it differs from other smartphones are the ability to use Google’s Gmail service. Gmail is a powerful e-mail client which offer all the functionality of a full-fledged email client but has been tailored for iPhones. Now Gmail not only looks and works exactly as you would expect, it also comes bundled with Apple’s Air Gesture technology which allows you to tap your phone against a screen or even against your hand for added functionality. If you’re not familiar with how to get Gmail on iPhone, then the following article will give you some tips and pointers.
The first thing that you’ll need to do is sign up for an account with Google. If you already have a Gmail account, then this is relatively easy – all you have to do is go to the Google application and tap the Gmail button. If you don’t have a Gmail account, then you’ll be prompted to sign up for one. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be taken to a page where you’ll see that you have a choice of three different accounts to choose from – ‘entails’, ‘premium’ and ‘business.’ You can then click on the links to gain access to your desired account.
If you already have an existing Gmail account, then you’ll need to head to the ‘adders’ section of your account and activate the account by clicking on the appropriate link. You’ll then be taken to your ‘gems’ section where you’ll be asked to add a new account. Be sure to choose the name you want to use as it’ll be shown when you next check your account information.
Once you have an account set up, then all that you have to do is sign into your account. You’ll need to enter in your username and password – just make sure that they are correct and that your username and password are different from the ones you normally use for other services/accounts. When you’re signed in, you’ll see a message asking you to confirm your subscription. Click on the link, which takes you to an activation SMS message. This is because Google is now working on mobile SMS texting and is hoping to enable you to send and receive Google alerts and emails on your iPhone.
Next, you’ll want to head into the Settings section of your iPhone and find the General section where you will find settings for Gmail. This is probably the section you were looking at when you were setting up your Gmail account, so save yourself a minute and flip through this section to see what you have to change. Some of the preferences you’ll change within this section include the email option – you’ll be able to choose a specific email address from which all your new messages will come. If you’d like to filter out certain messages and only keep the very important ones, then you’ll be able to do so here as well.
Finally, the last part of how to get email on iPhone is to sign in to your Google email account. Signing in should be pretty easy – you’ll probably be prompted to enter your usernames and passwords just as you would when signing up for any other service online. The process will actually be a lot faster this way, since you’ll be able to see all of your messages right away! Once you’ve signed in, you’ll see a Gmail window appears. Click the main button, which takes you to your current page. Now, all you have to do is follow the instructions to set up your new Google account and your own personal mail address.
It’s really just as easy to sign in to your Gmail account as it is to sign up for any other site. Your account will be created once you’ve confirmed your Google account (which just means you’ve confirmed that you own a Google account), and you’ll be ready to receive all of your new emails straight from Google. You’ll need a cell phone, or a secondary phone that will always be with you, to get these messages onto your phone. The good news is that you can sign in no matter where you are – even if you’re on vacation somewhere!
That’s it! It’s really easy to learn how to get email on iPhone. You may have to do a bit more work on your part to make sure that everything goes smoothly, but the effort should be worth it in the end. You can look forward to a whole new way to communicate with your friends and family! It won’t be long before you become addicted to this feature!
