you're different than most folks with a new smart phone. they feel a need to dl every app available, whether from android mkt recommendation on youtube.

sorry you're having problems & you're right, shouldn't be happening on the new phone.

Pulled the trigger and got a new Maxx for both me and the wife before the 28th.  Both phones are working flawlessly.  Have 4 different email accounts including yahoo.  All of the email accounts work perfect.  Battery life is absolutely amazing.  Best phone ever.  However..... I came from a Fascinate and I had trouble once with Yahoo mail after it had been working perfect.  I finally removed "all" email accounts and then added them again, one by one, with Yahoo being the first one set up.  That solved my Yahoo problem at that time.

Yahoo has had this problem for YEARS. Even on my old Moto Q in 2007 i would go just fine for months and then boom, authentication error on the built-in email client. Had to do resets, or manually configure ports to get it working again. Same authentication denials with the HTC Email app on my DInc. Finally gave up fighting with it and downloaded Yahoo app. It's ok, updates too frequently and now has banner ads in it but fine, whatever.

I'm thinking what is happening is that Yahoo doesn't like their stuff being "pulled" by built-in email apps and want their own "push" type app used for revenue generation. So they have crawlers out searching for non yahoo app server access on phones and over time, de-authenticate them deliberately. As in all things capitalist, it's all about the money.

It's not the phone; it's the <Deleted> network.  I had this problem from day 1 with my POS Samsung Charge purchased a year ago. All at once both my Yahoo and Gmail accounts would start throwing up authentication errors at the same time.  Putting in their respective passwords would just cause additional authentication errors.  I finally developed a pseudo-solution; I used my computer to change my account passwords, and then used the new passwords to log into my accounts with the next "authentication error" prompts on the phone.  That suppressed further authentication errors...until several weeks later. Needless to say it was <Deleted> off to have to continually change passwords.  After several months I finally figured out there was a pattern to the issue.  The authentication error plague would always occur 3-4 days before Verizon announced another round of new 4G city additions. To this day I still get the authentication errors on my phone, subsequently followed by me muttering a string of very colorful obsenities about Verizon's 4G network.  I just used my last upgrade on a Razr Maxx hoping that the device would be immune to this particular issue, but it sounds as if that's not the case.  Smiley Sad
