I just checked again, and it's now attempting a download. It's not letting me, mind you, because I'm not allowed to connect a phone to my computer here at work, and there's no wifi access here. Apparently, I'm suppose to have one or the other. Now I'm all excited and more anxious to go home. Lol.
alright, downloaded. first thing i noticed was the phone synced to my hotmail account immediately, and gave me all my messages. i just sent a test message from my google account to my hotmail account, and the phone almost immediately notified me of the email. Seems like the email problem is fixed, and that right there, is enough for me. Now time to check and see what else is new and different....exciting! Especially if your primary email account is a hotmail account!
