Configuring Your Smartphone

Gmail - - What once was the world's longest beta test is undoubtedly the best way to manage email. It's available anywhere, at any time. It makes it virtually impossible to accidentally lose mail. Plus it's as fast on mobile as it is on a powerful desktop computer. 

Gmail does things a little differently, keeping your conversations as, well, threaded conversations — not just back-and-forth messages like back in the Dark Ages. It's a different way of doing things, but it works. And it works well.

While there are a number of mail apps available we highly recommend that you install the Gmail app available in both...

It's as easy as downloading the app and entering your GCSD email address and password!!

** A note for iPhone users... we've seen an issue with Google and the iOS not connecting the contacts to their numbers so where you used to see the person's name when receiving a text or call you would only see their number. This is easily resolved however...

Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account > Other > Add CardDAV Account (under Contacts)

Enter this information in the fields:
                                                            - Server: google.com
                                                            - User Name: your full GCSD email address
                                                            - Password: your GCSD password

- Click Next and within a few seconds the Contact info will sync
