Greetings

Last week purchased new ipad pro 12.9 5th gen, geek squad transferred everything from old iPad pro 1st gen where Gmail was setup as default email instead of icloud.

Gmail appears, however, new emails cannot be sent. However, replying to emails works.
Checked Settings, Mail, Accounts, Gmail, Mail & contacts buttons are On

Live 2 hours from geek squad. Any suggestions?
Thank you,
Gem

Go to the Settings app, Mail, neer the bottom of the list you should find the Default account option.

I'm confused as to what you are asking at this point.

As for contacts, if she want's to use her Google contacts then go to Settings > Mail > Accounts > GMail, and turn on the Contacts option. This should have been turned on by default when adding the account, but it's possible it got turned off somehow or other.
