The iPhone is one of the most popular smartphones in the market today. There are millions of users around the world who use an iPhone to conduct business as well as for personal communication. The popularity of the iPhone could be traced back to the fact that it is compatible with most mobile apps and web services. Users can easily sync their contacts and email data with their iPhone so that they can access their mail anytime they want. BigPond, which is now known as Telstra Media, also gives its users the option of syncing their email ID for greater connectivity. This article will give you an insight into how you can set up BigPond email on your iPhone. As easy as the process is, it is possible that different iPhone models may have settings under different names. Hence, you should call the BigPond support number whenever you feel you need more information to set up your BigPond email.
Steps to setup BigPond email on iPhone
BigPond users have the option of using two methods to set up the email service on their iPhone, one is the automatic method and the other is by manually changing the IMAP or POP settings. The manual set up is a little tricky because you will need to know the correct server name and the port number. It is recommended that you try the automatic method first, since it is easier, and then use the manual method.
Method 1: Automatic Method
Step 1: Go to the setting your iPhone and tap ‘Accounts’
Step 2: Select the option to ‘Add’ a new account to the phone
Step 3: Search for BigPond in the list of email services on your iPhone
Step 4: Type your BigPond login info and save the settings
Method 2: Manual Method
Step 1: Select IMAP as the email account type and proceed
Step 2: For server settings use ‘993’ as the incoming server port
Step 3: Type ‘465’ in the given field as the outgoing server port
Step 4: Leave the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) connection on
Step 5: Enter the username and password of your BigPond account
Step 6: Mark the checkbox of ‘Outgoing server requires authentication’
If you find that you are unable to set up BigPond on your iPhone even after attempting both these methods or if you get stuck at a specific step, you should seek help from an expert. You can call the BigPond customer service number and reach out to a certified BigPond expert to get a step-by-step guide on how to set up your email on iPhone.
