Things to check before you add Clearwire Email on iPhone

Here are a few things that you need to take care before moving on to the step to access your Clearwire Email on iPhone using IMAP.

  1. Check and ensure that you have stable internet connectivity in your iPhone. So, you should check your wifi or mobile data connection. Internet connectivity is very necessary because the information you provide while setting up Clearwire on iPhone is verified from the server. That’s why, if you are not connected to the internet then the setup will not complete.
  2. If you have downloaded some emails in your mail app on iPhone previously then you should take a backup of those downloaded emails. Doing this is recommended because configuring a new Clearwire Email account on iPhone can delete the previously downloaded emails.
  3. Keep your Clearwire Email ID, username and password with you before starting the configuration process. All these information will be required while setting up your Clearwire Email IMAP account on iPhone.
