Gmail.com as Exchange on iOS

I have a customer that does not want to have to wait for their iPhone to retrieve their Gmails (Fetch).  As a result, I am attempting to setup their gmail account as an Exchange account.  When I do, it accepts all the settings (all check marks) but when I check email it says (cannot access server).  Any help?

Exchange accounts in IOs are Active Sync accounts. Check this article against the settings you have on the device -

I tried both solutions with no avail.  It's confusing since I have set it this up before.
>The Gmail app doesn't alert upon email that has arrived
>Setting up Gmail as Exchange says its successful, but when I check the server it says its unavailable.

Perhaps having the Gmail app and Gmail setup as Exchange on the same phone is causing the conflict?

ActiveSync (Exchange) on Gmail has been discontinued by Google unless you have a paid "Apps for Business" account.  Reference:  https://support.google.com/a/answer/135937

For instant notifications, the Google Gmail app for iOS is excellent, and in many ways a better email application.

In addition, you can setup the native iOS mail to use IMAP for those times you may want to use the mail integration with other apps (ex: email link from safari).

I attempted all solutions systematically but none worked.  I believe Gmail has turned off its m.google.com server for mobile devices
