Did you pay for a "data plan"? You can't get email without one.
I had the same issue, you have to buy a plan with yahoo to have mobile email with them, if you go to gmail and setup a free email and then put that info into your phone it will work and its free and it will sync up with your picasa on your phone and youtube... it took me forever to find this out but thats what i did and now it works with no problem
i have done this and it works fine:


account name: yahoo
email adress: your email
login name: your email without the "@yahoo.com"
password: your password
server type: IMAP4
incoming server name: imap.mail.yahoo.com
incoming server port: 143
SSL Usage: off
outgoing server name: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
outgoing server port: 2525
SSL Usage: off
Outgoing Authentication: Auto
Use Outgoing Login: do not check
leave the last 3 blank


also have added music to my phone with out buying!! by doing this:

just change extensions to mp3 on my computer and place them in the folder named motorola the one with the temp folder i it DO NOT PUT IT IN THE TEMP FOLDER! (just the motorola folder CONTAINING the 'temp' folder) and then while it is plugged in press the build library button it might not work then unplug the phone but on the computer make sure u safely remove hardware first then it should find the music--->worked for me!

hope this helps
helppp alott
