    My email from my pop3 account worked fine the first 2 days (Sept 22). Ever since my company pop3 account will not sync unless I reboot the phone. It will not manually load messages.

    And has anyone else had issues with viewing emails? OMG is it slow. I moved from BB to the Facinate. BB has got them beat by a mile on emails. We won't even talk about syncing with outlook and the salesman at Verizon...

    I do not have the update as mine will not update which Verizon said SOME are having issues updating. Thanks Verizon for your concerns.

    I'm having the same issues (however mine will sync if i hit the refresh button in the email app), at first they worked fine, but I'm starting to think my problems are related to having rooted my phone. have you done anything specific to your phone that you can remember?

    No I have not rooted my phone. I want to but not till I can get some issues resolved so I know that rooting is not the problem.

    I have given up on it at this point. Every forum search I've done comes up with essentially the same answer.

    The apps are cool, and the display is awesome, but if it can't perform the basic fundamentals that a smartphone is supposed to do, its just an iPod or iPhone with open source.

    Thumbs down at this point.

    I'm with you 100%. I posted this after reading other posts that were way too long.
    Have you noticed that not 1 premiuim member of moderator has posted to this message. There must not be a fix now or ever in the future. If Verizon does get the iPhone is January my Samsong Facinate and my DroidX are going in the garbage. What Junk!!

    I am having the same email issues with my Samsung Fascinate. I am starting to believe that the verizon sales people are all clueless. As compared to my first generation Blackberry Storm this phone really lacks. Email is not reliable. Sometimes it works and when it does it is very slow. In addition to the email issues the GPS is very slow to pick up my locations. When it does pick up a location many times it is off by a half mile or so... If they do not come up with some sort of update for these issues i may turn my storm back on.

    Don't know why, but with my free K-9 email I have my POP3 account to sync every 2 hours and it does so without fail. VERY reliable. And fast. Also, I have used the GPS tips found on this forum and others and find the GPS coupled with Google Nav to be quick and as good as or better than most low to medium priced standalone PND's that I have tried. It's only disadvantage is that the maps aren't on your phone memory so you have to have data connection for it to work. I would not go back to BB now if you paid me to.

    I will say, the bright spot for me on this phone (I have the US Cellular Mesmerize, not the VZW Fascinate) is the Google apps. Maps and Navigate work very well and the GPS is accurate. USCC did not see fit to block/lock on to their own bloatware, they have seemed to be content to let Google and Samsung take the lead.

    I'm going to keep the phone for another week or two and see how it goes, if I can find a "workaround" for the email, I'll learn to adjust. The rest of the things this phone does makes me reluctant to go back to my BB. But the email is a dealbreaker, unfortunately.

    I'm confident that I am not the only person in smartphoneland who doesn't want/can't accept "just use a google account" as the answer.

    Among other reasons, I wanted Android specifically because of what it offered that Apple didn't.

    As many in here I have been having some E-mail issues with a POP3 account. From searching the web it appears that this issue is rampant across all of the droid phones. I have had the fascinate for about 2 weeks. I setup the e-mail initially, and it has worked flawlessly for about 2 weeks, then all of the sudden sometime yesterday, it quit retreaving e-mails. And this morning, I noticed when trying to force it to retrieve e-mails that I was getting the dreaded No connection issue. Settings were fine, and I rebooted phone several times, No help. I deleted the e-mail account and re-set it up. No help. I might add that during that setup, test on both servers worked fine, but when it tried to retrieve e-mails, No Connection. Finally I downloaded K9, and it is working fine (Crosses Fingers). However, I checked the stock app, and it still comes up with the No connection issue. Any ideas? Feedback from a Forum moderator would be nice. Thanks.

    I am updating a couple things here that I thought of:
    I installed a couple new updates (At least 6), so it is always possible that one of these items is somehow responsible for the e-mail issue. Unfortunately, I don't remember all of them, but I am posting in case there are similarities for those others that are having problems. I know for a fact that Angry birds, System Panel, TV Guide Mobile, and Chuck Norris Facts, were updated. I don't remember the others. In addition I tried the trial version of PowerAmp yesterday. I removed PowerAMP, and System panel, and rebooted on the chance that they might have somehow been responsible. (Don't see how on PowerAmp, but the System Panel was suspect) And, before somone jumps on this, no, I was not using System Panel to kill Tasks. I stopped doing this after about day 2 when I did a little more reading on the Droid forums. Anyway, hope that helps someone out.
