I've used landline phones pretty much my whole life. Eventually in early 2010 I bought an LG Accolade phone just to get certain family members off my back. I put it aside and never got around to activating it until about a month ago, after reading reviews about how it's a great basic phone. It works just fine so far except...
When I click either "Mobile Email" or "Search (bing)" it takes me to a run down of features, then a browse & download menu that says "No items were found". When I try "Mobile Web Mail" and click Windows Live, I get an error message that says "Security Error: Untrusted server certificate". Is there any way to get these activated? Or is the Accolade outdated and/or obsolete?

We're glad to hear your phone is working okay for you so far, but we want you to get the most out of using it. pherson is absolutely correct in saying Mobile Email has been retired, so it's no longer offered; however, the message you're getting when trying the Mobile Web Mail option sounds as though something else is going on.
What software version do you have in your Accolade? Here's how to check http://vz.to/1NiKc7J .

Thanks for this additional information, Mxcorp73. Let me assist you further with your concerns about accessing the internet. The device has the ability to access specific internet pages.

Mobile Web already is activated. I didn't use it much, I think ebay said at one point that ebay Mobile no longer supports this device.
I just tried using Mobile Web to access outlook / hotmail and I'm still getting the same untrusted certificate message. I also can't find any information online about what exactly the error message means. Will I have to go to the Verizon store to fix this and/or trade it in for a more recent basic phone? I really don't wish to let the plan run out at the month's end and put it aside.
