What kind of phone are you using? Are you using a cellular data as well as wi-fi?

Hi, it's an AT&T phone with android.  It has data, but I turned it off, and turned  wifi on.  When I click on the world globe icon on front, it says it can't connect, but I have wifi in my house.  I feel so stupid.  Thank you.

No problem, sometimes we just need to start from the beginning. First go to Apps - Settings - Wi-Fi and make sure you're connected to your network by clicking on it's name. If you appear to be connected, turn off wi-fi and turn it back on and reconnect. Also try to power cycle your phone by removing a battery and then turning it back on. Can you get to Google Play store? If you can, search for a different browser, just to test your connection, try chrome browser.

Hi and thank you!!! I just turned off wifi and turned back on. When I
click on world icon, it goes to yahoo. when I click on google chrome, it
goes to google play, and when I click on gmail, it show my mail. but if
click on email, says can't connect or 'no emails' even thou are are some.
Ooooeeevaaa.
I guess all I want to do, is use chrome as my default browser, and access
my mail and facebook. Facebook does work right. I didn't know my first
smart phone was smarter than I, hahaha. Smiley Wink
Merry Christmas

BTW, if you have an AT&T Corporate Store nearby, you can always stop by for some information and tutorials. Are you using only Gmail or another email service too?
