Using the Yahoo app will give him a separate inbox devoted only to Yahoo email and that's counterproductive to his needs.

    Please refrain from pressing the issue as it is only serving to add to his frustration. Thank you.

    Well my two month old had other plans for my day....when my wife get's home from shopping I'll
    have some time to try this out. In the interim, I inserted an SD card to back up the phone but...
    it has been a long time since I did this on my Iconia and I can't recall how to find and format the
    SD card, then backup to it.

    I'm going to download the Motorola manual and see if it is in there.

    Buldog, while your offer to trade is generous...I'm not there yet!

    Often times it is often formatted to work in your phone and will work fine from the start but sometimes not. If it is a blank card, you can format it from your pc as exfat and it should work in your phone.

    Well, my phone is wiped...using the factory reset/data erase.

    I've been staring at the red orb-like screen of the Android logo for about 2 minutes...

    I sure do hope it doesn't stay here....reminds me of when the iPhone get's locked into
    that plugging in screen!

    No change.

    Tonight I had dinner with a friend, he purchased the same phone about 2 weeks before....and he has his Yahoo!
    account registered just fine.


    I am going back to Costco tomorrow, if they can't get it resolved then I will try Verizon, if they can't then I will
    return the phone. I already know the troglodytes at Motorola are as useful as confederate currency.

    Just for the pure fun of it...going the manual route, what settings ought I be using? I know it was mentioned but
    just one last time, for clarity's sake.

    Wow, I am so sorry. And especially having a two month old, this is not something you need to deal with. And btw, congratulations on the new addition in your life.

    Yahoo manual settings:
    Incoming:
    Server- android.imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port - 993
    Security type - SSL

    Outgoing:
    Server - android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Port - 465
    Security type - SSL

    One last thing... log into your Verizon account online. Look for the Back Up Assistant online. Delete any email accounts that may be being backed up via BUA. That was one thing we tried when I talked to Verizon when I had the same problem.

    No point in giving the outgoing settings as I never get to that point.

    Those are the settings I have repeatedly tried to no avail. On the Verizon web site, it tells me
    I need to complete the setup to access the BUA. I am not inclined to do so as it may further
    complicate matters, unless you think it best.

    Thanks...yea, my free time is sporadic at best and far fewer now...but when he sleeps, I can get stuff done.

    No, do not complete the set up. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't already in there. If you call or go to Verizon (which might be more productive than Costco...not sure how much Costco knows about troubleshooting phones), you can ask if it's possible that BUA could be causing the problem. They can check on their end. Verizon may end up sending you another phone. And if they do, we can still trouble shoot this phone until it comes time to send one back (either the replacement or the original, depending on which one we get success).

    I went to Verizon today....I can't explain how this happened....

    He tried on my phone using the Yahoo! icon within the native mail app
    and received the same username/password BS I did.

    I suppose he had to....but he had me log in using a tablet on display to
    verify I know my own password. While I was logging off, he was doing
    something on my phone and viola! it logged in. I did not get to see how
    or what he did and he insists he did nothing special but my Yahoo! mail
    for at least one account is now on the phone.

    I asked Verizon but he didn't know, can this phone play MKV files?

    If not, I've had good luck with MX Player, played a couple oddly formatted videos for work. MKV show up in the settings for that player.
