New phone and notifications aren't cooperating with email


I got a refurbished phone due to my breaking my other stratosphere phone the other day. I have been working on getting this phone back to where I had it before I broke the other and I have not been able to get my email notifications to cooperate. I have gone into the settings of both the email and my phone and I am still having issues. It's like the email is not refreshing before I open it. It looks like it is refreshing when I open it and that's it. Do I need to take it in and have it looked at or is there something I'm missing? BTW I'm using Yahoo for my primary email.

mkhudson, no worries, this is an easy fix. It sounds like you have your e-mail set up to manually fetch for new e-mails. You will need to access the settings of that e-mail account and change the "fetch new e-mail" option. This programs your device to fetch new e-mails every 15 minutes, 30 minutes or hourly. As a result, new data will be pushed to your phone directly from the server. Click http://vz.to/vOYYCX and select your device to retrieve the steps on how to do this.
