YOU WANT EMAIL? YOU’VE got email. The Samsung Galaxy S II does a great job of handling whatever email task you throw at it. Want to send and receive attachments like pictures; Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files; and PDFs? The Galaxy S II can do that. How about working with just about any email service out there? It can do that, too. You can also manage your mail, sync your mail, and plenty more right on your phone. It’s a great way to have your email always in your pocket.

This chapter shows you how to get the most out of email on the Galaxy S II. And since more and more people use Facebook or Twitter in addition to email, or even instead of email, as a way to communicate with friends, business associates, and family, it covers those social networking services as well.
