So, I went against my better judgement and went ahead and purchased the HTC One S today.
Everything went smoooth with app, SMS, contact transfer.
I've setup both an Exchange server account and Gmail account with no problem. For the life of me I CANNOT get the SBCGlobal.net (Yahoo) account to work. Used the same stettings that worked on my Samsung Vibrant that I just stopped using a few hours ago...still won't authenticate for the sbcglobal.net account. Here is what I used in 'manual' setup:
- Protocol - POP
- email address
- Username - email address
- Pop server - pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com
- Security - none
- Port - 110
I've tried none, SSL and TLS for security...none worked.
Did some digging and notice that this problem seems to be pervasive on HTC products.
Anyone have a fix?
After 3 hours fumbling around, I was able to find the answer to my problem:
Despite my email working fine with the settings above on my old Samsung Vibrant, I found the following new settings that worked 1st try on the ATT.net support site:
How my old phone was able to work using different...anyones guess. Hpefully, my 3 hours spent will save another user time. FYI, HTC One S....AWESOME.
