Can anyone tell me how to set my email on my phone (not sure if it matters but brought phone in New Zealand) I have spoken with both VODAFONE and MOTOROLA and neither have solved my problem. The default settings didn't work.

First things first... Are you able to access the Internet with your phone?

If you install Opera Mobile can you visit websites?

We need to establish that you can actually access the Internet, before going on a chase for the e-mail configuration.

Next you haven't told us which ISP you are using, so we can't help you with server name, etc because, well because we can't without knowing which ISP (unless you know this information already).

I don't no what opera mobile is but i can access vodafone live 3g. my isp is xtra.co.nz but i also have an account with vodafone.net.nz. i would prefer to access email straight from my xtra account. I'm getting confused big time. my phone allows me to enter url's does that help.

Xtra requires you use a SSL connection to their POP3 servers to retrieve emails when connecitng from outside their network. Check that your phone support this - and check the Xtra support pages for the correct configuration.

Once you have turned on secure remote email from Xtra

This still may not work I have tried with a V3X before to check Xtra Email and never got it to work

I would recommend downloading and using the free flurry app available on the net. It is far better than using the shocking POP access available on the V3X

Check my blog for "Bubble wubble dubble trouble" as I have placed setting on that which seem to work reliably.

 I agree with Natedog. Forget about using the V3x for pop email. The flurry mail will probably be your best bet. The V3x has a few good features, but email is not one of them. For email in a cellphone, you can't go past Nokia. One workaround, is to set up a Vodafone email account and forward your xtra email to the new account. Then you can access through the live menu. If you are not in 3g coverage, this will be very slow.

P.S. I have my email (gmail) forwarded to my vodafone.net.nz address so that i get text notifications of new emails. I then just launch flurry when one comes that i actually want to read. Saves on data too. If you are going to do this though make sure you have allowed for the text notifications in your text bundle (otherwise you may be in for a nice large bill!)

I want to thank everyone for there help with this problem. Furry was just what i was looking for. However a friend of mine told me about Woosh BroadBand. With this ISP I get for the same price as Xtra
1) 5 gig of download ,Xtra current give's me 3 gig
2) Wireless access. Xtra said this would cost extra
3) My Handset has default settings for Woosh not Xtra
I'm waiting on the hardware and hope the speed is better than Xtra that offer upto 3.2 Mbs but I have never got close (admittedly I have to use an extention between the Telecom land line jackpoint and my modem , thankfully that is not an issue with Wireless Access) but with Woosh they offer upto 1.6. Hopefully this inproves. My friend says he can stream video at a normal viewing speed just as if you are watching a dvd.
Thanx again !
