How to setup Exchange or Google mail, calendar, contacts using ActiveSync on your iPhone or iPad

Exchange is Microsoft's corporate email, calendar, and contact system, and ActiveSync is their fairly awesome protocol to keep it all updated on all of your devices, including iPhone and iPad. Google licenses ActiveSync for Google Sync, which used to be available for all Gmail accounts but is now restricted to paid Google accounts. No matter whether you use Exchange directly from Microsoft, from Google, or from your company or a third-party service, it's all setup the same way. All you need to know are your credentials.

How to setup Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Contacts on your iPhone or iPad

Earlier this year, Google decided to ditch their Exchange ActiveSync-licensed GoogleSync service for free Gmail accounts. Paid Google Accounts still enjoy full support, and existing setups were grandfathered in, but any new, free account setups, like those necessitated by a new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c means - poof - no more Gmail over Exchange. So, what's left for you to do? If you don't want to pony up for a paid account, or forward to a push service like iCloud or Outlook.com, you can use Google's eccentric IMAP service, which works with Apple's Mail app and allows for a unifed inbox with other, non-Gmail accounts, and the Gmail app, which is excellent but is a silo unto itself, and a few other options. Here they are, such as they are...

Poll: Which email services are you using on your iPhone?

Poll: Which email services are you using on your iPhone?

So which email services are you using on your iPhone? Apple gives away iCloud's me.com addresses for free now, geeks love their Gmail (though not the app!), Yahoo! mail is still going strong, even if Yahoo! isn't, and Microsoft recently said 2 million iOS 5 users were using Hotmail, and growing at the rate of 100k a day now that it's easier to setup (go figure!). Then there's corporate Exchange, your ISP's email, home-spun servers, and all sorts of other stuff.

iOS 4.2 bugs: Exchange 2003 causing problems?

iOS 4 on iPhone and iPad and Exchange 2003 just don't seem to be playing nicely together, especially when it comes to Calendar events -- they mysteriously disappear from ActiveSync, invitation replies refuse to send, and, well, don't get me started.

Both problems are serious for enterprise users. In the first you create or accept and Exchange event invitation, it gets added to your Calendar, and then -- poof! -- it's gone. But only from ActiveSync. If you look in Outlook or OWA (web interface) it's still there. If you're relying on ActiveSync on your iPhone or iPad, you could miss your meeting, call, conference sessions, etc.

Hotmail to gain ActiveSync support for iPhone and iPad. Finally.

CNET is reporting that Microsoft's Hotmail will finally gain support for... Microsoft's Exchange ActiveSync protocol. Sure, even Google's had that for a while now, but better embarrassingly late than embarrassingly never, right?

iOS 4 feature: Linked contacts

When you sync contacts from more than one source (i.e. Exchange and MobileMe, on-device and Google Sync, etc.), and there are duplicates, rather than showing the same contact twice iOS 4 will instead create a single, linked contact. This works on any iOS 4 device, including iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, recent iPod touch, etc.

When you look at a linked contact, the header will show Unified Info at the top so you know it's linked. At the very bottom of the contact it will show you the source of the links (i.e MobileMe, Google). Tapping on the source lets you see the original, non-unfied info from just that source.

If you don't like the idea of your contacts being linked, you can tap edit and hit Unlink. If iOS 4 missed linking a contact that ought be linked, tap edit, scroll down to the bottom, tap Link Contact and choose the contact you want linked.
