I set up Gmail account on the iphone 5. When the phone is not connected to Wi-Fi, then email application is giving me this message: "Cannot Get Mail. No Internet connection available."
How can I by pass this error and get email to work...
I also have same situation with Hotmail account as well.
Thank you for your help.
In the upper right corner of the device does it says sprint 3g? Can you use the browser on the phone when not connected to wifi? Have you checked to see if the cellular data is turned on ?
I do see "Sprint 3G" on the uppler left side with 3-4 verticle bars .... I am able to browse/access websites as well without connected to wifi. Also, the cellular data is turned on.
I started experiencing the same problem a few hours ago. Despite being able to access websites via Safari and run the Speedtest app, I kept getting a "No Internet" message when running the mail app. This was both with LTE and 3G.
I forced a shutdown of the mail app and when I restarted it, it was able to connect to the internet on 3G (I have to go outside for LTE).
There are two ways to fix this but both seem to be temporary fixes:
1. Hold power button and home button at the same time till the iphone shuts off. Then restart. This tends to work.
2. Call "##873283#" This will update your service. It takes a few minutes and should be done in an area where you have a strong cellular signal.
Like I said, both of these tend to be temporary fixes. Not sure how long it will last for each of you.
Rumor is that Sprint is aware of the problem and is going to fix it. Its a problem only with Sprint iPhones.
Hope this helps.
