problems getting yahoo inbox emails with new iphone 4s

Is anyone else experiencing problems receiving inboxes from yahoo email account after getting new iphone 4s? I got mine on friday, could have swore it was inititally working on fri and sat, then on sunday, it stopped working. I can send emails from my iphone but it's not updating new ones beyond sept 18th. I can get the emails from my work email but not yahoo. I tried to start a new yahoo email address and it still won't work. Tried opening a gmail accound and had no problems. I spent 3 hours on phone with apple and att today. They both think their systems are fine since I get the other emails from other accounts, and that it is an issue with yahoo. I've deleted the account, restarted it, turned phone off then on.....anyone else with this issue?

I've got an iPhone 4, but been suddenly having intermitten issues with my Yahoo e-mail since I upgrade to iOS5.  It tries to update, but churns and churns with the little 3G icon whirring away.  Me thinks it's either an iOS5 issue or AT&T issue in the past week or two.

I too am having a huge problem with att.yahoo email.  My 4S can receive emails from other accounts; cannot receive email from attl.yahoo; and it cannot send ANY emails via WiFi or 3G.  Has anyone found this same problem and more importantly a solution to this problem?

How did you setup your account? pop, imap, etc... Yahoo is funny in that I find they charge extra to get their mail to work the way you would like it on an iPhone.

I've never had a problem with yahoo I've got 2x accounts on here

Try restoring ur phones set them up as a new iPhone
iOS 5 is abit buggy I've had hardware issues with mine a few times
But restoring has fixed that Smiley Happy
