Sadly, I can no longer check my email from my cell phone. For the past two years I have had an application on my phone called Soda-Pop Mail. Essentially, Soda-Pop Mail retrieves email from one's email provider. That provider can be a web based email service, such as Yahoo or Hotmail, or it can be the email account one has through one's provider. What makes Soda-Pop Mail even handier is that it leaves the email on the server, so that you can still download it to your computer.
Unfortunately, it was about two weeks ago that Soda-Pop Mail simply disappeared from my phone. I have checked the list of applications that U.S. Cellular provides and I don't see it on the list. I am thinking then that they may have dropped it. That is sad, as I think there is a greater need for Soda-Pop Mail than many of the applications they do still offer. I mean, what individual other than a teenage girl is going to use Chick Talk, an application for sharing advice on such things as dating, family, et. al. And I can't think of anyone but the truly desperate or truly hypersexual who would use something like Flirt Pix. It is essentially an application for single people to share their "hottest lifestyle pictures." It amazes me that these applications are still available, and yet Soda-Pop Mail is not.
Anyhow, I truly enjoyed Soda-Pop Mail while I had it. And if you are on a cellular phone company that offers it, I fully recommend that you subscribe to Soda-Pop Mail. It is a worthwhile application that comes in use when you are away from your computer.
