Newbie here and REALLY appreciate the wealth of information here. Now I've got a question and hope someone can help. My Hotmail is flakey. It just does not work like I expected. I've asked tech support at Verizon for input, but the cs reps are not that well versed in Hotmail issues and really did not have a definitive answer other than it's probably a Hotmail issue. Issue: Sometimes the "download mail" icon will just whirl around minutes at a time, but never download my new messages. Some suggestions offered by others on the forums include shutting down the phone and turning it back on (that works pretty much all the time) and only downloading while 3G is on, rather than internet. I understand that Google, Motorola and Verizon are pushing gmail, but I would think that Hotmail has enough of a following that keeping us happy would be somewhat of a priority too. Am I the only one having issues... and are there some foolproof ways of keeping my Hotmail updated? This is not a business related phone so my daily life does not depend on immediate incoming mail, but it is an annoyance. I have resorted to going to www.hotmail.com on the browser to pick up my mail several times. I'd prefer to use the email app for ease. I have two other accounts.. both Cox, and they appear to have the same issues, though the mail coming into those accounts are so few it's hard to assess. I have all my gmail forwarded to my Hotmail account, but I don't think that's part of the problem. Thanks for your help and suggstions.
