Re: i cant send/received gmail using my P990i


Are you trying to send/receive using the Google application for Gmail? If so, I've used it for some time and the only problem I have is if the data connection falls briefly, in which case I just hit the button again and it normally comes back up.

I haven't tried setting up Gmail in the built-in Messaging application but I imagine it should work ok *if* Google has enabled your account for IMAP -- they haven't done this for everyone yet.

I cant send data via bluetoorh to other phone... or receive data from other phone throught via bluetooth... cant detect other device after searching for other phone throught via bluetooth. Im using P990i...

When you are receiving the file, check whether you have checked the Visible to other option. And it will ask for the confirmation when you will be receiving the file from other phone whether to accept or not. While sending the phone to which you are sending data should accept the file you are sending.

Let me know if you have any comments.

No internet setting

You need your Service Provider to send you Internet Settings.
Ring them up and ask.

Once they have sent them to you, save it and set as default internet connection.

Probably a simple solution, most email will update automatically when connected, but will not send unless told to. Just click options and send/recieve if it's saying it's sending them but not actually sending them.

Setup gmail on my samsung i600

I can access gmail on my phone; it's fairly straightforward: - unlock the keypad - hit the 'envelope' button at the bottom right to go into 'Messaging' - select the bottom item: "New Acccount" - choose "Other (POP3/IMAP)" from the e-mail provider list and hit Next - Enter your name and email address, then hit Next (leave the "Automatic setup" checkbox ticked; it makes no difference) - hit Next again to skip the automatic configuration - enter your gmail username (with the bit; I like to use the to download only the most recent emails) and password. Leave Domain (if necessary) blank and hit Next - choose server type "POP3", account name "Gmail" and select whatever network (WAP Gateway or Internet) you want to use, depending on how you want to connect - Enter the following - - Incoming Server: - - Require SSL connection should be checked (ticked) - - Outgoing Server: - - Outgoing server requires authentication should be checked - - Outgoing server configuration: - - - Use different user name for outgoing server (if you've used the recent: username for downloading email) - - - Enter your gmail - - - Enter your password - - - Leave domain blank and check "save password"  - - - check "Require SSL connection" - - - then click Done - - Select however many day's worth of emails you want to download and click Next - - Select "Never" to connect automatically if you aren't on an unlimited data tariff! - Click Next then Finish.
Hope this works!
