My msn account is set to update every 5 minutes and it updates when it feels like and it doesn't
feel like it very often. Now I start reading of it here and other forumsand it seems common.
I don't want to try every e-mail app out there and I don't want to manually refresh and watch a pretty
icon twirl in the corner of my screen and still not get them after 3 trys and I am not going to switch everything
This smart phone is real pretty but my blackberry works. If ya'll don't start piping up they won't fix it.
I'm piping up. My BB is free at this point I paid for this inconvenience.
I have the same problem and it is not just with Hotmail accounts. This problem needs to be fixed and I have called both Verizon and Samsung technical support and they have no solution. Verizon said it is a manufacturer issue and Samsung has not addressed it yet. Totally agree we need to get them motivated to fix it. I'll bet most users dont even realize there are extended periods when their email is not syncing because no error is indicated.
This is for Hotmail only. This was the main thing I didn't like about this phone but now I am very happy. Try it if you use Hotmail. Delete your existing email account and then do this:
I may have to get rid of this Fascinate as well...so far not fasinated at all particularly with the email problem. I installed Maildroid couple of days ago and it seems to be working. The provided email app will not receive email but the Maildroid software does. It is still in a Beta version but so far I am happy with it. Not getting the email problem resolved quickly shows lack of support from Verizon or Samsung. I have discussed the reliability issue with both technical teams and no resolution is known or even in sight as far as I can tell. This posting will fall on deaf ears as in the past....
I get email on my home laptop justfine, but it shows up on my Fascinate 4-5 HOURS later! Notifications don't show up, no ring or alert at all.
Then I tried to load the Good for Enterprise app and the Verizon Customer SErvice person I spoke with said it was fine, no problem, no extra charge. (My company offers this app to receive corporate email).
Come to find out, according to an e-mail from Verizon today, that
"The Android operating system is not compatible with it.
Had it worked with the feature you are interested in, you would need to have a specialized plan and, usually, your company would buy client access license for each user that needs it.
Corporate exchange email is what the Android supports, natively thru Gmail application. If you need more applications/features, feel free to search the marketplace on your device for exchange email." (this is from the email they sent me back.
all i wanted was a phone that allowed me get my home e-mail and my corporate email on the same device.
I chose wrong...BlackBerry is what think I should have bought.
Any ideas for an app that might fix the e-mail problems for me? tks.
Yeah, Good for Enterprise is similar to BES for blackberries allowing centralized management. If your company uses Exchange and has ActiveSync enabled, push email should work in the native email app on the regular 29.99 data plan. If you have to wait hours, then something isn't configured properly on your end or the exchange server. You can also try Touchdown which has a free trial available in the market. It's well worth the money if you want top notch corporate email support.
