Gmail Problems

I am trying to add my personal gmail account to the phone's settings. I have verified my gmail password multiple times on my desktop but the phone is not accepting the password and synching my mail and contacts. I have deleted the gmail account on the phone multiple times and tried to use the password with no success. What should I do?

Re: Gmail Problems

Actually the issue was simply if you use 2-step notification with Gmail, you have to set up a special app password for iPhone vs. the password you use to log in to Gmail on a regualar basis like from your desktop. Once you do and enter it in the phone's settings, it works. So problem solved.

Re: Gmail Problems

I've heard that if you download the gmail app from the app store, it works better.
