I am having issues with websites, this one for instance, not working on the iPhone when I try to enter my username/password (and yes, I have used the same upper and lowercase letters, and have typed very slowly with one finger on the iPhone to insure I am entering the exact words). Same problem with Yahoo, Google, Outlook web access. Not exactly the internet in my pocket if I can't get on to any of my sites!

Thanks for any help/advice.

I have had this problem particularly with my hotmail live web account. I hope Microsoft/Apple addresses this problem, and I imagine if Microsoft doesn't make push free soon, they will lose out to Yahoo and Gmail. But this works for my Hotmail login problem:

1. With Safari open, hold down the home button until the application shuts down completely.

2. Then go to Settings>Safari>Clear Cache>Clear Cache

3. Go back and try to login to the website.

You basically have to reset the browser and clear out the memory. I hope this works for you.

Make sure you do not have special characters in your password. I had the same problem but after i removed the special characters in my passwords it worked.

My password is in lower case.
How do I get the keyboard to use lower case instead of UPPER CASE?
Thanks.

Check out your keyboard settings. You probably have Enabled Caps Lock. Go to the keyboard settings under General in your Settings.

Easy Hotmail Login

I have had this problem particularly with my hotmail live web account. I hope Microsoft/Apple addresses this problem, and I imagine if Microsoft doesn't make push free soon, they will lose out to Yahoo and Gmail. But this works for my Hotmail login problem:

For faster/easier access to hotmail, login via http://mobile.live.com. This is Microsoft Mobile and you can save your login & password page in Safari.
