    When I try and add Gmail it says incorrect details but I know the details are correct.

    Does your Gmail account have any periods in it, but you're trying to login without them? For instance, mine is firstname.lastname@gmail.com, but I usually log in to mail.google.com just as firstnamelastname@gmail.com. I found that the mail app doesn't like this, and forced me to use the periods.

    I've had trouble with Gmail too. I did manage to add it eventually, though it took a few tries over a couple of days. Check if there are any updates (open the Store app) and try logging in to Gmail in your browser, then adding the account again.

    My email address firstname.initial.Surname08@gmail.com. This is how I log in to the website aswell.

    I have just got mine to work with the imail settings but it won't connect to Gmail so it can download my contacts and calendar.

    I found out what the problem i was having. It was because i was tacking the box that said about adding the calender and your contacts. Then i found out there was a update for the mail app which then removed that setting. Mine is all working fine now.
