    Hi everyone. Just switched from bb to the G2. HUGE UPGRADE!!
    I just have 1 issue. When I got the phone, I synced up to my work e-mail. Everything was going good, and for the first few days, I was sending/receiving e-mails like nobody's business.
    The problem was, one of the head IT guys didn't like the fact that I switched to a non-bb phone. His complaint was that I wouldn't be on bbm anymore. Needless to say, he didn't like it when I told him that sms was the same thing.
    A few days later, and I'm not receiving e-mails anymore unless I click on mail->account settings->incoming settings->then hit next to accept everything I have already filled out. The phone does its process (checking incoming server settings), and then I receive the 3-4 emails that were sent to me in the previous hours.
    I set up the account the same way I set it up on the bb: pop3. With the same exact setup, I never had any issues with it before. Why would support be so good for the first few days, and taper off later?
    I'm not sure whether this problem is being caused by technical issues related to android's ability to support the mail account, or by people who want to make it look like my phone's unreliable, dragging me back into the drugdery and boredom that is blackberry.

    I swear, this phone means a lot to me. I just hope this one problem can be solved.

    Oh, I forgot to mention. I also have a gmail account set up on the phone.... and it's INSTANT! As soon as I get mail in my gmail account, it shoots to my phone with such intense speed, I can almost feel the impact!!! :)

    GMail, and its native app on Android, uses IMAP. It is less problematic than the native POP3 app.

    Try a free app called "K-9 Mail" for POP3 accounts, as is generally more reliable and slightly more robust than the native POP3 mail app.
