    I was wondering if i back up all settings on iCloud, buy a new 5S and restore all settings from a back up if the gmail set up as exchange will continue to function? I know you cannot rekey it into the new phone but what about the restore from iCloud?

    Such a PITA to get a new email adress on all 4 of our families phones.

    Thanks,

    The answer to your query is no, unfortunately.

    You could just use the gmail app if all you need is push email...

    I've been using nuevasync for my gmail push through exchange. Expensive but I think it's worth it.

    why use nuevasync when you can use outlook.com as proxy?

    Setup as GMAIL, less buggy, ditch google emulated exchange. Should have done that long ago.

    Get full fields for multiple email/phone numbers, and two way sync.
    Fields for relationships sync.
    Editable drafts.
    More...

    Not a big deal for me. I just use the Gmail app for notifications (have badges turned off though) and then when the gmail app alerts me that I have new mail, I open up the native mail client. I don't ever get notifications on my lock screen so I'm never tempted to swipe anything that leads to my opening the gmail app...which admittedly sucks for use as anything other than an alert system.
