    Default iPhone EMAIL doesn't work

    Hi,
    My sis's iPhone has a problem with her email. It keep giving her the error message "Cannot Get Mail. The user name or password for "imap.apple.mail.yahoo.com" is incorrect." She enters her account and password correctly. Don't know why it's giving her this message. Does anyone have a solution for this problem? Thanks.

    For some reason, that didn't help me at all. Anyone else have a solution for this problem? Besides, my sis's phone has been a week already and still doesn't work.

    Has email ever worked on her iPhone? Is Yahoo! Mail the only email not working? How about Gmail? Is her iPhone unlocked?

    Yes, her iphone is unlocked. Her yahoo mail used to work before the unlock. After unlock, doesn't work anymore. She doesn't have gmail so no idea.

    Hi, I know this may be a silly question - but she can login with <username>@yahoo.com and password at mail.yahoo.com?

    I just tried and got the message from my iPhone that it couldn't get mail/imap username and password incorrect etc.

    I logged in at the Yahoo portal to read my mail and d'oh! Found that it said my account was inactive as hadn't used for 4 months so I had to reactivate the account. It also mentioned the account could have been deactivated for other reasons.

    Once re-activated (ok, so I'm not a regular Yahoo user!) the iPhone immediately authenticated to the Yahoo mail service.
    I thought that the tip might help just in case by any remote chance she can't even access the web mail like myself.
    Cheers, -= Digga =-

    I had a similar problem. If use AnySim to unlock, try restore in iTune(make sure it is 1.02), then Run PACAY again. The unlock will stay. Just reactive the phone solved my problem.
