Email Issue

Hey everyone,

I've had my iPhone for about a month now without any real issues. I've haven't dropped a call yet, I've had full service pretty much everywhere, and my battery life hasn't been too bad. The only issue I haven't quite figured out yet is why it won't let me send email. I have 4 email accounts hooked up to my iPhone, 3 aol accounts, and a business account. I don't think I have any trouble sending it from my work email (works through gmail), but for some reason it gives me an error message whenever I try to send it from one of my aol accounts. And the email forever stays in the outbox file.

Anyone else have this issue? Any advice?

I tried the troubleshooting page on the apple website but nothing there helped.

Thanks in...

Homescreen Background on iPhone

Is there anyway to change the background of the home screen without jail breaking the phone? I just want it to have the same wallpaper that it has on the locked screen. Thanks in advance.

Disasterous 2.2 picture e-mail bug

The only defense the iPhone had against not supporting MMS was how well it handled and sent e-mailed pics to and from the phone.

Now with the new 2.2 software that ability has been severely crippled. When you save a pic sent via e-mail or saved from a webpage the iPhone will not only save and display a very low-res and blurry thumbnail pic.

This severely cripples this phones multimedia cred. I know they were rushing to get the software out on the same day the Blackberry Storm debuted but c'mon...how could such an obvious bug make it though QC?

iPhone causing static?

I've noticed an issue lately that whenever I have my iPhone near my alarm clock radio, iPhone speakers (while in use), and some other electrical devices, I get weird static noises from the device.

I was wondering if this happens to anyone else?

Also, If anyone knew why this happens?

2.2 Firmware Update Is Out

Downloaded it this morning. It's 200+MB so it takes a bit longer than "usual".

Adds street views and public transportation and walking directions to Google Maps. Enables ability to download podcasts via WIFI on device. Offers the option to turn auto-correct off while typing. Improves how the device handles HTML emails and stabilizes Safari and calling features. Oh, and improves message quality of visual voicemail.

A decent update and I love that they are always improving the iPhone. But I'd venture to guess that this in not an update that many were clamoring for. Oh, well. Got to save something for the 3rd gen version, huh?

Dialing with handfree in car?

Are there any voice dialing application for the iPhone that allow you to voice dial with your built in hands-free system in your vehicle? Even the most basic phones can handle hands-free dialing. I need to be able to just press the call button on my in-vehicle bluetooth connection and then be able to use voice dialing without handling the phone.

Question on playing videos

Hi, sometimes when I am playing a video on my Iphone 3G, the video won't resize when I turn the screen from the horizontal position (long ways) to the vertical position. The video still plays in wide screen even if I am holding the phone upright. Is this a function of the phone?

conference calling - 3 way not working

has anyone one else had this problem yet? I can have a call on hold and one that I'm talking to but when i hit the merger button nothing. I can swap calls but now merge. also found our that apple charges 30 bucks for a loaner phone if you don't live close to a apple store which is pretty crappy.

Pop up text message

How can I stop the text msg preview from popping up when I'm using my phone, I turned off the sms preview in the setting menu and that only stopped it from showing up when the phone is locked. Am I just stuck with this issue, or can something be done?? Thanks in advance.

for pete's sake, gimmie the following

Don't get me wrong, I didn't buy the iPhone for what it didn't do, but what it had, and how it could be updated regularly.

Honestly, can someone give me a very good reason why we STILL don't have MMS? It's beginning to be more and more important, and we still don't have that function. I'm tempted to pull my sim out and use a different phone when I want to picture text, but that's ludicrious. I hope the release of the Storm instigates Apple into giving us the features we really wanted.

This isn't a trolling or hate of the iPhone. The good heavily outweighs the bad. It's by a LONG shot the single best phone i've ever handled. (I'm a salesman like most of you).

Cut and Paste, and Picture Messaging in on my X-Mas list to Apple.
