How to Set Up Your Gmail E-Mail on the Samsung Galaxy S 5
If you already have a Gmail account, setting it up on your Samsung Galaxy S 5 phone is easy as can be. Follow these steps from the Apps menu:
Find the Gmail icon in the Apps list.
Here is the most confusing part. The icon on the left is the Gmail app. The icon on the right is the icon for all your other e-mail accounts.
Tap the Gmail icon.
Because your phone does not know if you have a Gmail account, it asks you whether this is a new account.
Tap the Existing button on the screen.
This brings up the Gmail user ID and password screen.
Enter your existing Gmail user ID and password.
Go ahead and type your e-mail account address and your password. When you’re ready, tap Done on the keyboard.
If everything is correct, your phone and your account get acquainted and become best friends. After a few minutes, they are ready to serve your needs. If you have a problem, you probably mistyped something. Try retyping your information.
From this point on, any e-mail you get on your Gmail account will also appear on your phone!
