I have spent days on and off the phone with Verizon and Motorola tech support trying to get my email working from my two aol accounts, one comcast, one yahoo, and one pop3 business account. I went through an exhaustive set up on Friday after I bought it(using the email icon). It worked well until Sat. night or Sunday when it stopped sending emails. This morning (and all **ucking day) I called Verizon and they said that the phone is not being received well by these providers and the pull request will have to be re established by pulling the battery or going to each account and requesting the email. They said the Linux software is foreign to these providers and they are not cooperating with the new phone. At this point they said that if I use the Gmail account I can set it up to grab all of my emails and I then went through this process on the Gmail site of setting up the importing of email for all of the accounts. At this time all of my emails were downloaded sucessfully and showed up on the Gmail page. Ever since then not one email has been sucessfully forwarded by Gmail. I get back on the phone and spend hours arguing with with people from India who represent Verizon and Motorola, neither of whom speak understandable english or understand much about the Droid. It was so incredibly frustrating!!!!! I love this phone and what it can do, but if it can't reliably send me my email it is going back for an Iphone or a Storm2. The conclusion from both Verizon and Motorola was that I should set up the email using the Email icon again as Gmail CANNOT send me my AOL, Comcast, and Yahoo mail (I think they are wrong), once I re- set up my accounts, in the next few days these email providers will allow the phone to access the email (start cooperating with it). The email providers just need time to adjust to the phone as it just came out on Friday. Is this bull****? Does anyone know the real story on this because I can hardly understand the Indians who can't understand the phone. I am not being racist, I simply mean I find it hard to comprehend their accent.
I would appreciate any help I can get because I want to keep this phone. If I miss the wrong email, I could be toast.
I think Moto, Verizon, and Google have put too much on the back of the consumer with this phone. I know that I am not technically savy, or at least as much as many people on this board, but who did they think they were selling this thing to? This is what business has come down to, farm it out to low cost countries and hope it works? Introduce a phone that is not yet ready to work with most of the major email providers? This can't be........... can it?
