Setup Google Sync for iPhone Contacts, Calendars and Push Gmail

If you are an iPhone user, you probably know how to jailbreak the device or just do some other hacks. Our site offers you to get some funny and useful iPhone hacks that will help you to solve some problems and get the answer to such questions as how to setup Google Sync for iPhone Calendars, Contacts and Push Gmail.

The standard Mail application of iOS devices like iPad, iPhone and  iPod touch comes with an account template for Gmail which utilizes SMTP and IMAP protocol in order to access Gmail content, and so doesn’t support full sync and push of emails, contacts as well as calendars with Gmail on internet.

Google includes such feature as Google Sync that uses the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocol (which is very much the same as Windows Live Hotmail push e-mail and contacts or calendar sync) so that you can keep Gmail mailboxes, calendar and contacts in sync with mobile devices, such as iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with full push support. By using Google Sync, you can view and even edit your mailboxes (for example Inbox), calendars and contacts from the mobile phone, and also get alerts for incoming e-mails or coming calendar events.
