Before you begin
You will need to access your Google account once on the web before configuring your mobile devices, so that you can click on the license agreement on Google.
To configure your iPhone or iPad, please follow the instructions available at Google Support. Please note that you access Google similarly to how you used to access the Drew Mobility Server, by using the "Microsoft Exchange" server type on your phone. Please also note that although Google has disabled this support for gmail.com accounts it remains available for Google Apps accounts.
Android phones have native support for Google Services built in. To configure your Android device follow the instructions at Google Support. You can have multiple Google accounts on your phone and it will show both sets contacts and calendars (calendars from different accounts have different colors by default). Most Google apps on the device allow you to switch which account is active or switch between accounts interactively.
Google also supports Google Sync for Windows phone
