Unable to receive emails to my iphone 3g when my computer is on

When I have my home computer on with outlook receving emails, my iphone will not get any emails unless I retrieve them before my computer gets them. So I'll turn my computer off when I go out for the day. Can I fix this problem so the emails can go to both my iphone and my pc?

    I have the same problem with the 1st gen iphone and have been closing my Outlook when I am not at the computer. Annoying. Apple and Cox (ISP) have offered no solutions.

What are you talking about? Configure your copy of outlook to leave a copy on the server for a week. The problem has nothing to do with your ISP, it is your duty to configure your mail client to fit your needs.

I want to copy my sim contacts on my apple i phone 3 g, but am unable to do so... i went to setting from their i imported the sim contacts but that is also not functioning.. it imports but in contacts...

Hi there,
This type of errors occur when you jailbreak your set, if you want to copy your contacts from the sim try with another Sim in your phone, if it gives error with all Sims, then you can copy your contacts in the Outlook and then synchronize your contacts with iPhone,
To copy your contacts to outlook, take any nokia phone capable of connecting with usb to computer and nokia pc suite, make your contacts syncronize with outlook firstly from nokia,
when you got your contacts in outlook , connect your iphone 3g with computer, and itunes will show you your set, then go to info and sync contacts with outlook, click on apply and then sync, all of your contacts will be sync and you will see the contacts in iphone,
If you require more assistance regarding this, feel free to reply to this post
Regards, BA

Can you get your iphone to sync your emails to outlook?

Yes. It takes a few steps but its worth it once you get it setup.

There are detailed instructions at, follow the link below:,2817,2329295,00.asp
NOTE: These instructions are for syncing an iPhone 3G to Outlook and Vista. If you have different systems then you will most likely still be able to find a solution with a simple search on the PCMag website.

EMAIL SYNC TIP: If you regularly read email on several devices (desktop computer, iphone, laptop, etc), you may benefit from being able to read emails on one device without pulling them from the server. This allows you to access & download the same emails on several devices without the need to physically sync your devices. Even better, it's incredibly simple to do! Here's how to do it:
- Open Outlook on your computer.
- Click "Tools"
- Click "Accounts"
- Click to highlight the account you'd like to modify.
- Click "Properties"
- Click "Advanced"
- Under "Delivery" make sure there is a check in the box next to "Leave a copy of messages on server"
You now have to options to choose from. I recommend using the first one "Remove from server after ____ days"
Just check the box to enable this option. I have mine set to remove the emails after 10 days. I will generally open outlook on each of my devices at least once during a 10 day period. (As you know, once you open Outlook, it downloads the emails to your computer.) I never miss an email!
Good Luck!

Iphone & microsoft outlook ... or keep my blackberry?

True BlackBerry fans will want the Bold. It honestly is the best BlackBerry ever. There is no other choice — it’s the Bold. Plus the Bold spoils you. We cringe at the sight of our friends using Curves now. From the screen, to the keyboard, to the OS, which hate it or love it is pretty darn solid, the Bold is fantastic. But when you throw the iPhone 3G in the mix, it’s gets pretty difficult. A lot of early criticisms surrounding the original iPhone have been addressed. Corporate email, 3G, GPS, price, 3rd party applications, and so on. The honest truth is that if we had to use only one of the two devices, we’d be happy enough with whichever one you gave us. We could deal with the email shortcomings on the iPhone, and we could deal with the improved but not incredible browser on the Bold. It really comes down to what you need more in a phone. While the Bold certainly has improved media and other consumer features, it really is a business device at the end of the day. The iPhone 3G is a consumer device that happens to play nice with a lot of corporations, and we honestly think you won’t find many people dropping their BlackBerrys for an iPhone.

Using Outlook on my pc - disappearing email on my iPhone

Hi, Possibly this could be the reason. Your iPhone might have been setup with IMAP connection, and Outlook with POP3. In this case, once email is downloaded by Outlook, it will be deleted from the server. So, go to Advanced in your Outlook account configuration and Select the option leave a copy on the server.

Then you will have to delete all the emails individually from your phone too.

Palm to iPhone

Assuming you are using Palm desktop, have an email account, and can receive emails on your iPhone:
1) Open Palm Desktop on your computer and click on Contacts.
2) Click on Categories and select "ALL".
3) Go to Edit and click "Select All" (all contacts should be highlighted)
4) Go to File and click "Export Vcard"
5) A dialog box will prompt you for a file name. Use what every name you prefer, but remember the file name and location. Your contacts will all be saved as a vCard file (vcf)
6) Now go to your email account and send yourself an email and "attach" the file you created from step 5.
7) On your iphone, receive the email from step 6 above. Scroll down to the bottom of the email and you will see the attached file from step 6 above.
8) Click on the attachment and you will be prompted by iPhone to add the contacts to your contact list. Follow the intructions.

Should work like a charm! [There are other ways of exporting from Palm to the iphone by exporting from Palm to a CSV file and then importing, after mapping fields, to either a Windows Address Book file or an Outlook (not Outlook Express) file. The advantage is the ability to sync on a batch basis with your iphone.. helpful to quickly add changes/new records to your iphone. But the vCard method outlined above is easiest]
