    Pop email needs 3g to work??

    I have had a Motorola Droid Bionic for almost 2 weeks now - have about 4 more days before I decide whether I want to return it for a different droid model. I need it to be able to download emails wherever I am. I live in the country and usually only get 1-3 bars of 1x signal, although sometimes it switches over to 3g. My old Blackberry storm was fine with this, never a problem accessing email. But my new phone needs a 3g signal to work at all on email, which perplexes me.

    Is this normal?

    I know there is a fix the manufacturer is working on for email issues. If this is to fix this problem, amongst others, I'll stick out and keep this phone. If this fix is not in teh works, I'd rather get another phone.

    Thanks,
    Trisha Stall

    My Bionic pop 3 works on wifi
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    mine works on wifi too, but when I leave home and go down the road I lose email functionality as soon as I get away from my wireless server.

    POP3 should work fine on 1X, just much slower.

    Plus, gmail (which I don't use, but have set up on phone) won't update/check mail without a 3g signal. This can't be right? Anyone have this problem besides me, or is this a problem with my phone that I have to go to Verizon store to get them to fix or issue me a new phone?

    Any ideas out there? Need to know if it's my phone or normal; if it's normal I'll live with it, if it's not I need to go to Verizon store to exchange my phone....

    It doesn't sound normal, but that may be how the new 4G generation technology operates.

    Here's what I suggest as a first step any time you are having any problems with Gmail: settings/applications/manage applications/all/gmail/clear data. That solves a lot of issues, but I've never encountered you exact issue. Good luck.

    OP, your issue is not normal. I don't have help for you, but my Bionic does Pop3 and Gmail on wifi, 4g, 3g, and 1x. Call VZW first. If they can't help, go to the store and get a replacement
