Every student needs access to their eRaider emailing system. Unfortunately, not all students have 24-7 access to a computer. Therefore, installation of the system onto a cellular device is very beneficial as well as almost necessary. We chose the iPhone 4 as our model since iPhones are by far the most popular choice of today's society. Also, the models do not vary too much between upgrades, so users can easily use this instruction set for all of the iPhones.
