Yahoo Mail's IMAP Bug Is Finally Fixed

Posted by Richard Chao in "Windows Phone Software" @ 05:48 PM

"To quickly summarize, whenever a smartphone checked for new Yahoo mail, the server would transmit more information than needed. While not a huge problem on desktops connected to broadband, it was huge in the mobile space - a space in which carriers snipe bandwidth hogs and users oblivious to their data usage and monthly allowances."

It looks like Yahoo has finally made some changes in the way its servers communicate with handsets when polled for mail. Instead of sending back the entire message header as before, thereby causing users to use more data than necessary, the servers now only send back the requested information when polled. This is good news for Yahoo Mail users especially since most carriers are doing their best to phase out unlimited data for one to two GB plans.

Windows Phone Update Process Stuck? Try This

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Windows Phone Software" @ 10:00 PM

Courtesy of Microsoft, here's a process you can try if your phone gets stuck applying the update:

1. If backup process is in apparently prolonged state (exceeding the general 30-40 min) with no movement of progress (including stuck at 99/100%)

2. Disconnect the device from the PC

3. Pull the battery

4. Replace battery and power on

5. Device should reboot into the OSKernal

6. We would recommend at this time, not to retry the update, as subsequent attempts will fail similarly. While we continue to investigate the issue, we would ask that you not attempt the update until your device alerts you of another update opportunity, in approximately 3 days’ time.

7. Last resort option if battery pull reset does not work, instruct the user to consult their product documentation on Hard Resting the device to factory default.

If you run into this problem and these steps help, let us know in the comments!
