    Default Re: Exchange and Gmail

    I prefer to not use a unified mailbox because I have more than one email account and each used for a different purpose. The ability to pick and choose which account to view works well for my needs.

But Google has quoted those reasons as to why, and it makes sense.

    I always find that explaining to people why they can't have what they want is a poor substitute for giving them what they want.

    I'm off all Google services apart from YouTube for 2 months now. I use Bing as my search engine as well.

    Is there a way I can permanently delete my Google account?

    You can set up a CalDAV account for your google calendar, and a CardDAV account for your contacts. To be frank, using a Microsoft protocol to get Google services on an Apple device sounds a bit cumbersome to me. I kind of miss push mail on my new iPad, but I can get over it.

    Two days Google free. Since I've fully embraced iCloud anyway, I just switched all my mail to my @me.com address. Oh look at that, push on all my devices, and Mac mail even likes it. Tried Outlook.com and hated it in five minutes. Not sure what my mail storage limitations are, but hey, I guess I'll google it. Not entirely google free then I suppose.

    Default Exchange and Gmail

    Hello, I am a bit lost in this so please bear with me. 😊

    I understand that I can use the gmail app to get Push or I can set it up as imap which will refresh when I open email or at the defined polling time.

    My concern is contacts and calendar, will the gmail calendar and contacts synch with either of these two methods.

    Thanks much!

    My wife and I just switched to the iphone 5 from BlackBerry this month. I set up my wife's free personal Gmail account of 2/7/13 via exchange using m.google.com as well as my free personal Gmail account and my free Google Apps for Business account on 2/12/13 with no problems.

    Google has instructions for setting up to sync contacts and calendars using CalDAV and CardDAV - see Google's support site(s) for more:

    Any reason it would still work as a few days ago?

    Maybe unrelated but, I also was able to setup gmail via exchange on my BlackBerry Playbook a couple of days ago.

    Before Google ended it, setting up Google services via the Microsoft Exchange setup was a cinch and could be done within a minute.

    Okay

    I understand that I can use the gmail app to get Push or I can set it up as imap which will refresh when I open email or at the defined polling time.
    Yes, that is true.

    My concern is contacts and calendar, will the gmail calendar and contacts synch with either of these two methods.
    Yes, but it is recommended that if you use the CalDav and CardDav setup for syching purposes. Detailed instructions can be found HERE.

    Thanks much!

    Thank you both very much for the helpful answers. 😄

    I am actually enquiring on behalf of a friend, I was able to set up mine as Exchange two weeks back but it appears that many are not being able to.

    If you've set it previously (prior to January 31st) and you're still using the same device then you won't have a problem setting up Gmail via the Microsoft Exchange setup. However, those who have never set it up that will not be able to and current users will not be allowed to set it up that way with devices other than those it is currently setup on even if they restore from a backup.

    Thanks, my iPhone 5 is brand new and I got it on Feb 4 but for whatever reason I was able to set gmail up as Exchange.

    I am not complaining. Lol

    To clarify people; if you attempt to setup Gmail as Exchange on an iOS device that is not the one you are currently holding then it will NOT work.
    Man, do I feel lucky. I totally had forgotten about Gmail ending Exchange support and did a device
    swap at the Apple Store on the 31st. I restored my backup the same day.

    for what its worth, i had to replace my phone as well last week. i knew i was doomed, so i did some testing ahead of time. i have gmail set up as IMAP and set to fetch every 15 minutes. when i send a test email from my computer, it never takes more than 2 minutes to be delivered to my iphone 5, way ahead of the fetch schedule. 2 minutes instead of instant, plus i can still use my labels....i think i can live with IMAP. sure i would much rather have push, but for anyone facing this dilemma, dont fret.
