Dear Email On My Phone

Dear email on my phone: you are useless. That is all.

Seriously. I can understand it taking an unholy amount of time to download email, particularly when there are attachments. However, just giving up and displaying “this message has not been downloaded from the server” is completely useless. Why do I even both having email on my phone if you’re going to do that?

I could understand if there was a selection I could make to go and download the email when presented with the above error. However, I see no such option. You are reporting to me that I have an email…but you have no intention of giving me any way to get it.

Nor will you stop displaying this message. I can exit out of my email, but you will simply display this same message when I come back to the email I want to see. You have no intention of ever getting my email. I can force quit the email client and then try again, but more often than not you try for a moment and then again display “this message has not been downloaded from the server.”

Seriously, email? Email? Email gives you problems?

Honestly, if I can’t get my email to come up on my phone then the point of having one weakens a bit.I still use it for other things, but a smart phone has to be useful otherwise it’s an expensive brick and I’d end up doing without it.

I can understand it taking a while to download streaming video, but not being able to get a simple email is garbage. There’s just no excuse for not having some way to make sure I can actually get my email if you are planning to offer that feature.
