  3. C3-00 cannot connect to any e-mail account.

    All of a sudden I have the same problem, but on a C5-03, and also using WLAN. Everything was working fine but now when I open the mailbox from the home screen and say Yes to the question 'Connect to mailbox?" the phone shows "connecting" for a couple of
    seconds and then stops, without asking me how to connect (WLAN, GPRS etc) and without giving me any error message.



    As with the earlier posts, web browsing etc is working fine. I can connect to the same email account over the same WLAN from my PC and I know that there are emails to retrieve.



    What can we do?

    Hi everyone ,
    Thank you
    All that "HotSpot" / Hostednetwork are about Access Point for Internet Sharing. Actually you can not transfer files Point to Point , P2P, as I am intending to do.

    How to connect PC over WLAN without a Router?

    Hi Samuria,
    Thank you.
    Sure, I can. And I have also a router.
    I could also do it over Bluetooth, if it were small files.
    But, I just wanted to explore the WiFi connection.
