Bought a new phone which came with Nokia Messaging integrated with the default messaging client for emails? You would have noticed that there is no direct access to Mail for Exchange client on these phones like on the other S60v3 phones. That is because Nokia has integrated the Mail for Exchange client with Nokia Messaging on the new S60v3 FP2 phones like the Nokia E75, Nokia E72, Nokia E55, Nokia E52, Nokia N86 8MP and Nokia 6710 Navigator. Due to this, users could not directly configure a Mail for Exchange profile for Google Contacts & Calendar syncing.
But if you still wish to use Google Sync for contacts & calendar syncing, here is a guide which will let you do so. I have faced a lot of problems with Google Sync whenever I try to use it, Hence I would recommend you back up your contacts & calendar before syncing with google.
Enter your username followed by “@gmail.edu”. It has to be “.edu” and not “.com” Click OK.
In the next screen, Choose “Corporate” & press Next.
In the next screen, Choose “Mail for Exchange” & press Next.
You will now be required to enter your Google credentials & the server name. In the username, enter your google email id followed by the password. For the Server Name, enter “m.google.com”. Let the Secure login remain at On.
In the next screen, select “Email and data” & press Next.
This stage lets you decide whether you wish to Merge your phone data with google data. Choosing Replace will replace the data on your phone with the data on google.
The wizard will say email is now configured, but the set up isn’t over yet. Open Email settings.
In the settings, Open Mail for Exchange settings.
From the next screen, Open the Mailbox settings.
From the Mailbox settings, edit the “@Gmail.edu” back to “@gmail.com”. Leave the mailbox field blank. The User name will be your google email id & the password is your google password. After changing these settings, press Back.
Now go to the “What to sync” settings, change the “Sync email” setting to NO.
Next, Go to the “Personal Inform. Manag.” settings & from the next screen, Go to the “Applications” settings.
Go to “Calendar” settings, Leave it at “Yes”. The other settings can be according to your choice.
Next up, “Contacts” settings from the “Applications” settings. Leave it at “Yes”. You can choose whether to keep the current items on the phone or replace them with the ones on google.
This is important, Turn OFF the To-do sync. Otherwise, syncing will fail.
That should be it. You should be good to go. You phone contacts & calendar should now be syncing with your google contacts & calendar. There are a lot of settings for you to customize still, Open the settings and except for the settings mentioned above, tinker with the remaining settings according to your wishes.
Although I should warn you again, Google Sync is not perfect. I have only ended up messing my contacts & calendars everytime I used google sync. You can visit the Google Mobile Help forums and check out the problems other users are facing.
