Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

Iphone email Since I downloaded the new update on itunes my email no longer works. I have spent hours on the phone with the iphone help people. They can fix it for a short time but then it quits again. It worked perfectly on cox and yahoo for over a year prior to downloading software updates on itunes. Is there any way to actually fix this?

    When you click on the Mail icon, the email application starts to load and then bombs out and you are placed back on the desktop. The client never actually gets past the initialization phase. Although I have an older iPhone (not the 3G) this web site's solution worked for me:

    I have the same problem as described above, the problem occurred right after downloading the 2.1 update. I just got my phone two weeks ago. Apple is of no help so far. I have deleted and reentered email addresses numerous times. Something happened with the 2.1 download. I guess I will delete the update and do it again?

    Thank you to hanno31 for posting a link to a solution for this problem. You have saved me a lot of heartache trying to get my iPhone to work since I downloaded the update. I'm glad there are people out there like you who have a better understanding of the iPhone then me! and are willing to pass on the knowledge you have.

How do you transfer farm story 2 from old iphone to new iphone

If you want to sync apps to new iPhone, you can take advantage of the "Automatic Downloads" function of iTunes. You only need to tap Settings > iTunes & App Store, and locate AUTOMATIC DOWNLOADS, then turn on Apps and Updates. Finish the steps on your iPhone so that you can get apps on the other device when you finish a download on one device.
