This tutorial will show you how to setup ActiveSync on the Samsung Galaxy S3.
At the time of this writing, the current Operating System (OS) version is Android 4.1.2 "Jelly Bean". Make sure your phone's operating system is up to date before adding an email account to it, you can get help on how to do this from your wireless carrier (AT&T, Verizon, etc.).
We have not tested the S4 yet, however based on customer feedback, setup on the S4 is identical or very similar to the S3.
We highly recommend setting up your email account when your phone is connected to wifi, if you are on 3G/4G, make sure you have good reception while in one place and not moving around.
*Not all mobile devices and data plans support ActiveSync. Check with your wireless provider before attempting to setup your device with our service. Samsung Galaxy S3 supports PUSH email, contacts, calendar, and tasks synchronization with our Secure Webmail Interface.
