Re: help!!!

Do a soft reset, then hold the R button when it turns on, then let it reset everything on its own and let the R button go after it turns on.

I have a samsung b3310 on o2 and it wont let me send photos to my email address. I contacted o2 and they said they cant give me the settings because its pay as you go. I have never had this with any other...

It would help if you mentioned your provider, ie "" "" etc. Enter everything as normal (email & password) & change these options. I know only these 3 so far, Hotmail, "***" Account type -POP3-, Incoming, Outgoing Yahoo, "***" Account type -IMAP4-, Incoming, Outgoing GMail, "***" Account type -IMAP4-, Incoming, Outgoing These should be the only changes you need to make, always check the secure connection. If you still have problems setting up change your username to your full email address, you'll find it between your email and password. Hope this helps as it took me months to figure out the simple switch of "" to "com" or deleting the "4" from "imap4" in the incoming sever. Hope these tips help!
