I received my new Bionic in the mail today and starting setting it up this evening. I have had 2 other android phones in the past an thought this one would be easier to set up. I have tried everything possible to get the phone to sync with Yahoo and it says:
ERROR: Login to the account failed, please try again.
My user name or email address and password are correct. I have checked them both 500 time and it give the same message every time. PLEASE help it you know how to fix this problem. Otherwise I will be looking into a different phone. THANKS
Kimie with Phone on pull the Back Cover pull the Battery & then hold the power button in for 25 sec. Then re-install the Battery an power up the Device an see if it will accept the Account you put in in it. Try this & let me know the results. b33
