Customer Support

Good morning and happy Sunday kaydubb,

     Thank you for sharing your wireless concern with the community. With emails being one of the most critical means of wireless communication, I can certainly understand your sense of urgency to get this resolved. I don’t want you to worry about having to miss another message on your device. Please accept my apology for any frustration that this issue may have caused and rest assured as I am committed to finding a solution for you.

     I appreciate you sharing that your data connection is working as well as your ability to send emails. May I ask do you know or have the incoming server information to your email accounts? If so then I would suggest manually verifying the incoming server on all of your email accounts. I have taken the liberty to note the incoming server information for Gmail and Hotmail for you. For your third email account, I would suggest reaching out to the provider to verify that the server settings are correct.
