Anyone have any idea on this? Password is right but I can't get mail. It's happened on both phones so it can't be the phone.

I dunno on the messaging.

Try deleting the mail account and setting it up as new. Microsoft e-mail accounts always give Apple mail service(s) a hard time.

Log into your hotmail through a computer and see what is up.
Maybe it just temporaily locked you out for wrong password a few times in a row.

The bigger problem here is that you are still using hotmail.

Mine should be here later this week. I'm gonna get the Applecare+.
So for $100 I'll get the phone replaced every year because of the crappy anodized finish.

It's actually $100 for Apple + $50 per swap. so swapping it once means $150 plus losing your phone for a refurbed unit. Swapping twice means $200.

Plus do you really plan on keeping the phone for more than a year?

They do if it comes that way out of the box, and in limited circumstances (depending on the genius or manager you get) they will swap the phone [although they are trained not to at this point].

Do people not keep a phone for two years anymore?

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

I am not using hotmail. I'm just usually the one to help my friends when they have tech problems.

I usually do too. I'm not committed to keeping my 5 for two years, but as of now it seems like I will.

Still a fan of the iP5. Runs really smoothly, the camera works flawlessly, and the GPS is actually quite good (no google maps but still nice).

Ditto. I still haven't found a phone that I'd rather have. I don't want or need a small tablet for a phone like most of the others out there now.

Also, finally picked up the stupidly overpriced lightning to 30pin adaptor. Finally back to being able to connect phone to car for music without the Aux jack.

Yeah...yeah... I've vowed not to drop any more money into my car for mods and just keep up on the maintenance. It's time to save up for something more fast/fun and turn the E46 into winter beater status. I'm after something along the lines of your Mustang except with a bigger engine and a supercharger mounted on top of it.
