Screen Shot 2012-03-25 at 12.39.59 PM

There are a number of instructions available to connect your Rogers Yahoo account to Playbook OS 2.0 However, one of the watch outs I have discovered is that your password cannot contain a special characters. Here are the steps to connect your account

  1. Check your password and confirm if it contains special characters (e.g. @, $, #, etc.)
  2. If your password contains special characters change it using the instructions provided on the Yahoo webpage
  3. Once you are certain that your password is free of special characters proceed with connecting your Yahoo account
  4. On the Home Screen of your Playbook, click on the Options cog (Gear icon)at the top right corner of the Playbook in the System Tray

  1. I gave up on Yahoo a long time ago… Even Hotmail is offering a better suit nowadays… Which is VERY sad.
