iphone guru's, i need help!

My mom recently got an iphone (3Gs) and i can't get it to accept her email account names/passwords - it keeps saying that it's incorrect, when they aren't. She had it attached to itunes the one time, to activate the phone, but we haven't hooked it up since.. (don't know if that matters).

I don't know what to do to help her out... any idea? Thanks so much!

TIA!
I use the official HM app, but it doesn't include the same amount as the books (No Downtown Disney or hotels) which is a bummer, otherwise its fun

When I was trying to set up a Microsoft Exchange account on my 3GS, I kept on getting a similar error until I entered in the mail server domain name. This was marked as "optional" on the iPhone screen, so I initially didn't put it in there, but apparently that what was preventing me from completing the project.

If that does work or isn't a helpful suggestion, my other thought is to ask someone at an Apple store if there's one close by. This is exactly the sort of question that their customer service is there for.

Hi everyone. My DD wants to buy a used iPhone 3GS. We have ATT so it doesn't need to be jail broken. She is not up for her 2 year renewal so she wants a used one. She will be buying this herself. She looked on eBay but who knows if these really work. Anyone selling their old phones since they got the new one? Or where should she look?
Thanks
Denise

i haven't read through the thread so this may have already been asked..

this is for Iphone 3GS people - have you upgraded your operating system and then started having problems with your phone?

both DD and I updated the OS (to 4.02 or whatever it is right now)..

as soon as we upgraded the OS, we started having terrible problems with our phones...
the screen freezes so that we can't slide the bar.....this happens quite often including when we try to answer a phone call....it doesn't happen every time, but often enough to be more than just annoying..

has anyone else experienced this?

I have a 3Gs and it has definitely slowed down -not so much that it's annoying but it is noticeable. My wife and a few of her friends have the 3G and it is much worse for them. We were just discussing the issues last night -it's amazing that Apple didn't know(or maybe they just don't care) that the upgrades would impact performance. Of course it's a way to get everyone to go to the iPhone 4 ......or Droid.

Good news! This is a known and acknowledged issue by apple and is fixed in the 4.1 update. Jobs confirmed this in a published email and 3G and 3GS users using the beta for 4.1 report huge performance increases.

Since IOS 4.1 is in closed beta testing the likely release would be next month As all things Apple this could be subject to change

As Reid says, it's Apple. To add to that, he is correct that it's in closed beta, this is a headache for apple on top of other headaches from the launch of this phone which is still selling well but caused some PR issues for apple. All signs point to a large Mid-September event for apple... Rumors of a ton of items from the probable (iPod touch with face time camera) to the likely (apple tv relaunch to iTV that runs iPad/iPhone apps and incorporation of LaLa into iTunes) to the unlikely (7" iPad and verizon iPhone). I agree with Reid of somewhere in the next month for iOS 4.1 with the announcement and probable release at this same event.

And I too will wait for the jailbreak.

do you all recommend the iPhone-apple care protection? It is $69.00 but is it worth it or a waste of money?

I think Squaretrade.com is a better warranty deal for iPhones. They're slightly more expensive, but cover a lot of damage issues that AppleCare doesn't.

thanks for the suggestion. I checked out their website and then found out that tonight at 5pm PST they are giving 35% off if you friend them on FaceBook!!
So now just waiting for 5pm to get here to sign up.
The cost right now is $99.00 for 2 years and it covers cracked screens and wet phones! something Apple doesn't do. (Dave Parfitt needed this! the wet phone) Doesn't cover lost phones, but I have never lost a phone yet...knock wood..

so if you want 35% and are on FB friend them before 5pm PST and get the code!
