Without knowing how you have your mail app setup on the 5c we can't offer much help. However, if you have gmail as your isp, you can always open Safari on your 5c and go direct to the gmail web site and sign in with your password. You can read your mail and send mail from there if necessary.

Do you have iCloud setup on your 5c? And do you have an iCloud mail account? And I guess I should also ask if your using iOS 8.1.2?

Yes, "how are you accessing gmail" would be the first question to answer. A little info on how up-to-date you are with the 5c (iOS version for example) would also be helpful.

I have had issues like this with our Comapany email ( I have set up all of my family businesses iPhones, over 500). I am not sure what it is but some phones I can put the server information and all the goodies in for Exchange/O365 and it wont take it. But, if I save it and then restart the device and open mail, it magically works with no other configuration. I am not sure what the issue is but I have seen it with all versions of iOS.
