    ok., so my friend just got a new iphone and i just had a few questions.

    1. she doesn't like that the text messages she gets automatically show what is in them. Can this be changed to just show that you have recieved a text from " x"

    2. I am having trouble setting up her mail account. When i go into mail setup and enter all info for her account: password, name, email address etc it shows up with a message, something like

    "cannot connect to imap.mail.apple.yahoo.com" and it won't let me set up her mail account. I am just entering her yahoo email address and password and clicking o.k. What am i missing.

    thanks for the help. As it is urgent, she might be returning it if it can't be resolved. *sigh* "she just don't get it"

    thanks.
