    As of this morning, my iPhone won't retrieve my email. It keeps popping up a notification saying that the username and/or password are incorrect when they are not. Nothing has fixed it so far. I am not jailbroken, though I was previously. However, I reset as a new phone to get rid of the jailbreak a few days ago.

    Any idea what's causing this and how to fix it?

    Me too, but only with my Netscape account which is AOL. My gmail and yahoo accounts both work.

    This same thing is happening to me, for a while there I actually did think that I had the wrong password.

    I would say something disparaging about AOL but I won't. That's very bizzare, though. Have you all tried resetting your network settings? And since you set it up as new phone, I'm assuming you've re-added your email service and password...

    I've tried everything I could think of. And yes, I restored it Thursday night, and it wasn't until this morning that my email wouldn't work.

    AOL is going through an upgrade. Discussion here at Apple support.

    I spoke with AOL they said they have a server down and no clue how long it may take. So, it's not an iPhone issue, just AOL.

    All the Apple iPhone technology in the world will not tackle a dead server at an ISP.
