Minimum requirements for Gmail on mobile browsers

To access Gmail for mobile web browsers, your mobile browser needs to fit a few minimum requirements.

First, make sure your browser is XHTML compliant. If you're not sure if it is, visit and perform a search. If it doesn't work, your browser may not be XHTML compliant.

You can contact your mobile service provider to check the following requirements:

  • Your browser should have cookies enabled and your network should also allow cookies. The setting for cookies is usually located in your phone's browser settings.
  • Your network should allow secure SSL traffic.
  • Your mobile browser must have a URL length of 2000 bytes.
  • Your mobile browser must allow redirects of 10.
