  1. Hi Oscar, your writeup here was very helpful, thanks.
    Pls there is a challenge i’m facing with my small phone (Nokia C1), i use it to browse because it’s economical, though i have an Android phone. For sometime now, i can’t access my mails and other sites, though it will be showing that i’m signed in by displaying Hi Iyke, but i can’t access my mail box.
    Pls what do i do to start enjoying the services that i hitherto enjoy with this phone? Thanks for your anticipated quick response.

    • Hi Iyke,
      Sorry about the inability to access your mail. One thing that usually fixes most issues on such devices is doing a factory reset. Have you considered backing up your contacts and files, then do a factory reset?
