Customer Question

I'm sorry about the issue.

Are you using the app called Email for yahoo email? Or do you see the app called Yahoo Mail for the yahoo email?

To confirm, you have sound for the google/gmail email account only right? And you have sound when playing music or video on the phone right?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
