    I just put Cyanogen 6 on my Hero and think it will be great but I REALLY need some help with a couple of things.

    First - How can I get my contacts back? FWIW I have them in my Outlook on my laptop.

    Second - How can I get the settings to get charter email to work? I have searched and tried a couple of things with no luck.

    Third - I have a Google email account. Can anybody tell me the settings for it?

    I'm sure I will have more questions. Thanks for helping the Newbie!

    JUST REALIZED ANOTHER ISSUE - I tried to use the camera and it locked up. No response from anything. Had to pull the battery. Anybody else had this?

    First, I synced my Outlook contacts with Google Contacts. Not really my preferred way to do this because I just feel that this is more secure only on Outlook. For now I'll deal with it because it works.

    Second, I found a link that told me concisely how to get my charter email to work. Here is an excerpt of what I found. Worked like a champ!!


    Here are the instructions and if you follow them to the letter, you will solve your Charter email problem and get the POP3 email setup properly:

    "IGNORE what Charter said the address is for Incoming and Outbound. pop.charter.net and smtp.charter.net will ONLY allow you to RECEIVE, when you try to compose, reply, reply all, forward, you will get a error, and it will NOT go out.

    the correct settings should be:

    Mail Type: POP
    Incoming Mail Server: mail.charterinternet.com
    Username: myusername@charter.net (first part of your email address DO NOT omit the @charter.net)
    Password: whatever the password is to access the charter email account
    Port: 110
    Encryption: None

    Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.charterinternet.com
    Authentication: ON
    Username: myusername@charter.net (first part of your email address DO NOT omit the @charter.net)
    Password: whatever the password is to access the charter email account
    Port: 25
    Encryption: none"

    I think this is gonna work out ok, but there are still some things I need to change. The basics are done.
