    I was disappointed to see that the built in "mobile email" providers did not include GMAIL, which in my opinion is by far the best free email service available.

    The built in accounts are for Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, AIM, AT&T Yahoo, Bellsouth, Comcast, Earthlink, Juno, MindSpring, and Netzero. All of these, but no GMAIL!?!?!?

    So my mission has started to get gmail to work on this thing. Here is how to do it.

    The easiest way is to download GMAIL mobile from Google. Here is the address:

    google.com/mobile/default/mail

    Enter your number in the field and you will receive a text with a link to install the client.

    Once the client is installed just set up your login and password to gmail and your ready to roll.

    It is free, like most things from google. It is extremely well written (better than the built in email apps on the Propel)

    I have also found a couple other programs that sort of work, but the google supplied client is by far the best so far.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Getting GMAIL on samsung propel a767

    This helped me a lot. It worked perfectly. Thanks.

    From this point, a couple other things I did were after accessing the Gmail app, I selected Menu -> Go To -> Settings and selected Use large fonts (then hit Save) to be able to read the messages easier.

    I also changed my right side shortcut key to go to Games & Apps so that I could just hit the right cursor key then scroll to Gmail and launch it. There might even be a faster way but I don't know how to do it.
