Hi Jason! It's an iphone 4

Hello Elizabeth,
Setting up Gmail on the iPhone is very simple. You shouldn't have any problems with it.
Please, follow the instructions that I have typed below on the iPhone:
- From the Home Screen, tap Settings > Mail, Contacts & Calendars
- Tap Add a new account.
- Choose Gmail, if given the choice.
- Enter your Gmail username and password.
- Save the account and you are all set.
Now you can access your Gmail via the Mail icon on your iPhone.
You can always access your Gmail account on the other computer by opening your Internet Browser and going to and print from there.
I look forward to your next message or your rating below.

Thank you! But, when I send an email now, will it be sent from my new gmail account automatically, or should I delete my old AOL account from my phone? I tried to set it up so that my AOL will automatically go to my gmail
You can set your Gmail account as default by doing the following:
- From the Home Screen, tap Settings > Mail, Contacts & Calendars
- Scroll down until you see the "Default Account" option and tap it.
- Choose your Gmail account and save it.
You can leave the AOL account on the phone if you wish. You can also remove it, if it is not needed.
If that is all for now, please do not forget to rate my help on this page.
If you have any issues in the future like this, you can always request me personally, if you so choose to.
Thank you kindly,

Hi Jason! You helped me yesterday with synching my old AOL email account to my new gmail account, but unfortunately, our solution has failed to work. My gmail is not showing up in the mail section of my iphone at all. And , occasionally aol messages are not being streamed to my gmail account through Thunderbird on my Mac, so I'm missing out both ways.

Hello Elizabeth,

I just started my 16 hour shift, so I will be here and ready to help.
