    Thanks for the suggestion here. “Attachments” worked wonderfully for me (actually, I’ve just downloaded the app and it seems to do what Gmail wasn’t). I couldn’t believe how the heck Google could have such a ridiculous flaw which didn’t allow users to attach anything but stuff from Gallery. I also asked techies at the my cell phone provider’s stores and those so-called-geeks also didn’t know about this. Thanks.
