Do the PicoWireless apps work on my phone?
If your phone supports Java (J2ME, MIDP 2.0), the PicoWireless applications will work. Most feature phones support this version of Java, as do most Symbian- powered phones.

How do I attach files to an outgoing email?
First, ensure you are using PicoMail version 1.8 or later or Pico version 2.0 or later. If you are using a prior version of PicoMail, upgrade to the latest version by reviewing the information at the top of this page. Simply select 'Send' from the PicoMail main menu (or 'Email' -> 'Send' from the Pico main menu), then review the list of menu options available (such as 'Cc', 'Text' and so forth). If you phone supports the ability to view local files, an 'Attachments' menu item will also be available. Select 'Attachments' and a list of currently attached files (initially empty) will be shown. Select 'Attach file' to begin exploring your local files to find the next file you wish to attach to this message. Once the intended file is located, select 'Attach' to add the current file to the list of attached files that will be included in the outgoing email message. Once all files have been attached to the message, select 'Done' to return to the sending mail display.

How do I import my contacts?
First, ensure you are using version 2.0 or higher of the application and that you are not using a limited version of the application. Select 'Contacts' from the main menu, then 'Import' from the command menu.

How do I make my gmail.com account work?
You need to enable IMAP on your Gmail account. Please click here for step- by- step directions.

How do I make my msn.com account work?
You need to enable POP on your MSN account. To enable POP access, visit msn.com from a desktop browser, log into your msn.com account, select the gear icon (beside the account name, top right hand side of page), select "Options" -> "Connect devices and apps with POP" and select "Enable" under "POP".

I'm having trouble configuring or using the app, can you help?
First, please select the 'Users Guide' main menu option from within the application and navigate to the appropriate section. If that doesn't help, simply email us at: support@picowireless.com and we'll try to help out.

How do I insert a newline in an outgoing email message?
First, ensure your account is configured to send email as HTML. From the main menu, select 'Accounts', optionally select the email account of interest, then select 'Advanced'. In the section entitled 'Send email as:' ensure that 'HTML' is selected. To insert a newline character into an outgoing message, enter
into the message where you'd like a newline to appear.

Can I turn off the confirmation messages when the application is trying to access the files on the phone?
These confirmation screens are generated by the phone platform when the application is attempting to access particular aspects of the platforms functionality, such as reading or writing local files (for sending and saving attachments). As such, the ability to turn the messages off is a feature of the phone and is typically found in a program called either 'App Manager', 'App Settings', 'Settings' or something similar. On some phones, these settings may also be found in the same menu list as one would use to start PicoMail, PicoWeb, Pico or PicoSMS. Once the appropriate program is found, simply locate the options that permanently enable file access (or reduce asking for confirmation to once per session, so you're only prompted once).

Email messages sent from PicoMail or Pico arrive with unknown or corrupted characters, what do I do?
The character encoding used by the phone to represent characters within an outgoing email message is not available to applications like PicoMail or Pico. As such, PicoMail and Pico try to figure out the character encoding used by the phone using a variety of techniques, but this is not always guaranteed to work. As of PicoMail 1.9 and Pico 2.0, we've added a new configuration option for each email account to ('Accounts' -> 'Advanced' -> 'Send email character encoding') to allow the user to specify the encoding used by their phone. If this field is left blank and PicoMail or Pico is unable to determine the encoding of your outgoing email message, UTF-8 will be assumed.
