I transferred from an iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5. So far so good (well, after ATT managed to activate it, which had to be done verbally and contrary to instructions in the box).


Anyway, I cannot set up my Yahoo mail. After inputting my password in Settings, the iPhone tells me that the account requires verification and to log in to In order to do this you have to leave Settings and go to Safari, so I did and logged in to Yahoo. I have no idea why I did that because it changed nothing. I must be missing something here. Thoughts?
