  • I got a new i phone yesterday and no e mails are coming in on this new phone. My phone provider tried several times today to correct this, but gave up, telling me I need to set up a different e mail address. I cannot understand why I received e mails on my old phone and can't on this one. I don't think I should have to set up a new address, particularly since I had this before. hat is the solution to this problem? After reading comments, this seems to be a common problem.
