This is a known issue with Google on certain phones.

When authenticating to GMail, a string that is being sent back includes the variable reference "&ltmplcache" .

Certain browsers are interpreting the beginning "&lt" as "<"

With the semi-colon, "&lt;" is the character entity for "less than" So the browser is then trying to use "<mplcache", which fails with a 400 error.

Hopefully Google will be able to either encode the response so that the client software won't incorrectly interpret it, or else change then name of the ltmplcache variable.

But until then, we're stuck.

Instead of using GMail through your phone's browser, you could try installing the full GMail for mobile application.

    It really sounds to me like this is the <mplchase problem. It screws up authentication to anything in Google that requires you to log in.

    Trying a different mobile browser on your phone, like Opera, might alleviate the problem:

    In order to load Opera Mini onto your particular Motorola phone (i855), I believe you need to use Motorola's Open WebJAL program.

    This is installed on your computer. Then you can download a wide variety of Java applications and transfer them to your phone (like Opera, GoogleMaps, GMail, Solitaire, etc.)

    As long as you have a data cable to connect your phone to your computer via USB, you can use Open WebJAL to install Opera on your phone.

I have an active nextel i710 and want to move sim card to a i855 boost mobile,but i need a special unlock code.Can u help me.

Remove the battery from the phone. Let it remain out of the phone for 10 minutes with the phone off. Replace the battery and turn the phone on.

This is a problem with the phone trying to read the SIM card after being in another phone. Be patient. It may take several minutes for the phone to read the SIM.

I want to use a t mobile sim card in a motorola i855 boost phone

T-mobile uses GSM technology, whereas Boost Mobile's technology is IDEN. There is no way a T-mobile sim card will work inside a Boost Motorola i855 phone or any Boost phones for that matter and, of course, vice versa.

I855 text messaging

If this your motorola i855e is a Nextel phone, then not all the features will work very well if you put in a Boost Mobile sim card. Features like Texting, Web browsing are not likely to function very well or at all. Get a Boost phone for a Boost sim card. Cheers.

Boost mobile i855 restarts

it depends what service you have Nextel or Boost but either way have you tried a mater reset on it? If not go to settings, advance options, connectivity, master reset it's going to ask do you want to do the master reset hit yes, when it asks for a code by default the code is 000000 (six 0), than it says caution use manual just hit ok and it will turn itself off. you just turn it on and it should work from there if not call your cell phone provider and they can help you from there. I hope this helps

Mortorola i855 Text messaging probs

I've had this phone for about 5 months and it STILL screws up, not only on this, but also on VIP, Boost Prepaid Premium, etc. I had to send my first phone back.

I'd strongly suggest returning it to the store and buying something else if you can! I haven't been happy with either Boost Mobile OR Motorola!

You probably ratted the flex cable in it, the only thing you can do is tell the waranty peeps it doesnt make calls and get a replacement. if its under a year. otherwise you can send it to get repaired, my estimated bid cost would be 55 bucks plus shipping or so. But if its a boost moble one you might just want to re think buying one, you can get them cheap on ebay.
