    The "Setup Email" link appears to be broken. A page of html is all that appears.

    Nevermind.  Got it.  We were trying to go to mobile.oc.edu on the computer in order to set up and not on the phone itself.  Duh.

    Is there anyway to disable the "mail" app that comes with the iPhone? I just got a 6. I never use the included app but use the gmail app instead. Wondering if there is a way to keep the calendar information on the "calendar" app included with the phone without also using the supplied mail app. It takes up a lot of storage/space I don't use.

    Thanks!
