That's because you changed the password, and the active password on your phone is incorrect. Therefore, it will not allow you to receive push.

Settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendars>

Tap on your Yahoo! Email, delete the password that is there, and enter the new one.

You would have to do this every time you change a password on any account...even iCloud.

Not worked for me. When I proceeded as indicated, on my iphone 3gs, I received a message saying I need to go to When I go to on my iphone 3gs and try the new password, it does not work. When I try the old password, it states to enter ##'s which appear. When I enter the ##'s it simply tells me to again log in. Not getting anywhere and frustrated.

Have you tries completely deleting the account and re-adding it?

Thanks for the help here. I called Apple and had a tech walk me thru deleting the Yahoo email account and then re-establishing it, changed the password. Now all works GREAT. Thanks again.

Yes you did, and I thank you very much. I am not very good with technical matters and I can mess things up very easily (computer - iphone 3gs) and then be sorry afterwords as I may be unable to undo the damage I have done by pressing something incorrectly. I guess one can say I am "illiterate" when it comes to computer and technical issues. Again, I thank you very much. Have a great day.
