    Wireless Sync - Gmail for Q9c

    This may have come up before, but I couldn't find instructions to set it up. I have a gmail account set up on Outlook on my computer. What are the steps that I need to take in order to receive my email without connecting my Q9c to my computer with the USB or push my emails to my Q without having to connect my computer and sync it?

    I have Windows Mobile and Active Sync installed. I'm usually not this computer stupid, but I can't get this.

    Please help!

    Thanks for your quick response! :smile: I see the thread on how to set up the gmail account separate from the Outlook, which I didn't have problems with but that's not what I wanted to do. Is there a way that I can have my gmail come through my Outlook on my Q9c? So that when I reveive a new email, it will show up on my home screen without having my phone connected to the computer?

    Well I have Gmail setup on my PC and I would like to retreive my Gmail on my Q (through the Outlook E-mail in the messages) without having to connect with the USB. How do I do this? Do I need both the Active Sync and Mobile Windows software on my PC to do this?

    if you want to store the mail in the outlook folder on the Q without the USB cable you need to SYNC via bluetooth

    if you want to send/recieve it in the outlook folder on the Q you need exchange server

    if you want to just send recieve then setup a POP email account

    I pulled this off of the forum that you sent me in the begining...

    1.) Download IBM Java from: http://files.filefront.com//;6090608;;/

    2.) Copy the entire J9 folder to the root of your Q keeping directory structure

    3.) In the J9\MIDP20 folder create a subfolder called apps

    4.)
    Download the Gmail jar file from: http://gmail.com/app/v1.0.0/en/gmail-g.jar

    5.)
    Download Gmail jad from: http://gmail.com/app/v1.0.0/en/gm-Generic-Advanced_MIDP2.jad

    6.) Rename the jad file gmail.jad for simplicity

    7.) Copy both gmail.jad & gmail-g.jar to \J9\MIDP20\apps

    8.) Run emulator.exe found in \J9\MIDP20\bin

    9.) Select install and in the drop down box select "/"

    10.) In the URL box type \J9\MIDP20\apps\gmail.jad

    11.) Follow prompts until you see the application has been installed successfully

    12.) Create a text file for a direct shortcut to the Gmail
    java app

    13.) Use the following line for the shortcut (keep it a single line):
    197#"\J9\MIDP20\bin\j9midp20.exe" -classpath "\J9\MIDP20\apps\gmail-g.jar" "-Xbootclasspath:\J9\MIDP20\lib\jclMidp20\jclMidp20. jxe" javax.microedition.lcdui.AppManager "\J9\MIDP20\apps\gmail.jad"

    14.) Save the text file as Gmail.lnk

    15.) Copy Gmail.lnk to \Windows\Start Menu

    16.) To fix fonts
    download http://mysite.verizon.net/res00tqh/fontPaths.jar

    17.) Copy fontPaths.jar to \J9\MIDP20\lib\jclMidp20\ext

    18.) Optional: Create a speed dial shortcut for one click access from your homescreen


    Also, do I really need active sync if I have Window Mobile?

    So if I set up my Gmail account as a pop account, do I need the Wireless Active Sync?

    I still use my Outlook Calender and Contacts on my PC.

    It's much easier than that...


    I had the same issue, and contacted Verizon.

    All you need to do is click on your Wireless Sync icon and go through the set-up process (adding gmail address and password.)

    In your activesync settings, make sure you "uncheck" the box for syncing emails with your home pc, and you should be go to go. You can still sync your calendar and contact database with your phone.

    I hope this helps.

    wireless active sync?

    you would need active sync to get your contacts and calendar to the Q
    if you wanted to keep your email on the Q then you would still use active sync to sync the messages you want to keep on the device

    after the pop account receives them they are on the phone. once you open outlook it retrieves the emails and removes them from the phone...inorder to store them on the device you would need to sync the email with outlook

    so i would say yes you still need active sync
