To configure IMAP for your iPhone, just follow these steps:

  1. Enable IMAP in your Gmail account settings.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap Mail.
  4. Tap Add Account.
  5. Tap Other. (Note: don’t tap Gmail; if you do, you’ll set up POP rather than IMAP. We are aware of this issue and are currently working to make setting up Gmail more intuitive for the iPhone.)

Extend the life of your cell phone October 11, 2007

Average life span: Four years.

Preventive medicine: Do you recharge your cell phone more often than you brush your teeth? Ease up. The battery works most efficiently if you let it drain fully once a week or more. “Avoid exposing a cell phone to very low temperatures, direct sunlight, or excessive heat,” which can damage the battery, adds Muzib Khan, vice president of product development and engineering for Samsung.

Most common ailment: The phone conks out just as your friend is giving you the address of the restaurant where you’re meeting.

Diagnosis and treatment: The battery may not be holding a charge for as long as it should. If you’re sure the charger isn’t broken, the battery needs to be replaced. Buy a new one (about $40) from a reputable source. In rare cases, batteries from unauthorized dealers “can explode” and cause injury, says Grant Clauser, editorial director for E-Gear magazine, in Philadelphia.

When to pull the plug: An inexpensive phone with problems beyond a dead battery should be recycled (ask your service provider for details). Try to save a more costly model, even when it has taken a hard knock. “If you drop it in water, take it apart, let it dry for a day or two, and it may work,” says Kasey Farrar of Nokia. But if the repair estimate tops half the price of the phone, junk it.

Extend the life of your iPod October 11, 2007

Average life span: Two to three years.

Preventive medicine: Protect an iPod with a hard rubber case. Inspired by those dancing ads on TV? Lest you jar your player senseless, keep it on an armband. The battery will last longer if you let it run down completely once a month before recharging, says Shannon Jean, founder of TechRestore, a repair service in Concord, California. This ensures 12 to 18 months of play before the battery must be replaced.

Most common ailment: You try to tune in and your personal sound track drops out.

Diagnosis and treatment: If your iPod plays dead, try reloading the playlist. (You have a backup file of the playlist, right?) Keep the hard drive running smoothly by updating the software (go to http://www.apple.com/ipod/download http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/?ipod). If your iPod isn’t responding at all, the hard drive may be broken. Replacing it could cost more than buying a new player.

When to pull the plug: A pre-2002 iPod (identifiable by the raised scroll wheel) that has no sign of life is not worth fixing, says Jean. You’ll get more for your money by upgrading to a new model. A later-addition iPod merits salvaging, but not if a repair estimate tops $100.

Creating iPhone Ringtones for free September 10, 2007

Because Fission can losslessly edit AAC and MP3 files, it’s always been great for creating ringtones. Using Fission, you can crop audio down to your desired snippet, fade the ends in and out, and save, all in just a few clicks. Add the files to any phone that accepts MP3 or AAC audio files for ringtones, and you’re all set.Sadly, Apple’s iPhone didn’t accept custom ringtones for the first two months of its life. Apple shipped the iPhone with a nice selection of built-in ringtones, but unless you were willing to use one of the assortment of unsupported third-party hacks, the iPhone wouldn’t accept other files as ringtones.

Get work email on iphone July 26, 2007

With hundreds of thousands of iPhones flying off the shelves in the U.S. in the last three weeks—and numerous Apple stores reporting renewed shortages of the popular device—chances are good that IT staffers will be asked sooner or later to get an iPhone working on the corporate network. Given that Apple has a reputation for making consumer-focused products that—at least in the past—didn’t always play nice at work, most IT managers are likely skeptical of letting iPhones on their networks. Even without enterprise purchasing plans, a real keyboard and slow EDGE network speeds, the sheer form and function of this revolutionary piece of technology may soon have your management team pushing you to evaluate it for mass deployment.

Cant send mail from Iphone July 11, 2007

iPhone includes preset configurations for many of the popular providers such as Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, .Mac, and AOL, and in most cases sending mail will just work.

However if you are using a different provider than above and your ISP is blocking port 25, you may see a message that email couldn’t be delivered because the connection to the server on port 25 timed out.

If this is the case, try the following:

  • The iPhone battery might need to be recharged. For information about charging iPhone, see “Charging the Battery” in the iPhone User’s Guide.
  • If that doesn’t work, disconnect other USB devices from your computer and connect iPhone to a different USB 2.0 port on your computer (not on your keyboard).
  • If that doesn’t work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  • If that doesn’t work, restart your computer and reconnect iPhone to your computer.
  • If that doesn’t work, download and install (or reinstall) the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.

    Mobile Gateway 3.0 Continues to Support Widest Range of Feature Phones and Smartphones on the Market iPhone syncs Exchange Royal Tunbridge Wells, July 11, 2007. – Synchronica plc, international provider of mobile synchronization and device management solutions, today announced that Mobile Gateway 3.0 supports over-the-air synchronization between Microsoft Exchange and the newly launched Apple iPhone. This will allow mobile operators and service providers to offer mobile synchronization to business users and prosumers, enabling them to receive corporate email on their iPhones without having to ask their IT manager to open the firewall or install additional software. Mobile Gateway seamlessly integrates with the corporate IT infrastructure and does not require the enterprise to expose IMAP and SMTP in their Exchange servers or install additional connectors – issues that often raise security concerns with IT administrators. Instead, Mobile Gateway uses Microsoft’s secure Outlook Web Access (OWA) to retrieve email from the corporate Exchange server, a service enabled by many enterprises to provide users with access to corporate email from home or while traveling.
