no email sync, or ability to put enough in something to link to email accounts, browser use very poor, had to reset the jolla twice today to start again hoping to get somewhere. Very puzzling for the not degree level computer people I suspect. It looks good, does something, not quite as much as I would like at the moment.

It's been very frustrating that most of the core apps have seen little to no improvement or added features in the first 12 months .. Jolla appear to have become bogged down and massively delayed in upgrading Sailfish's various APIs and underlying tech, which they seemed to think would take weeks and has instead taken many, many months and remains an ongoing process. Everything else has suffered. Badly. Usability is not where it should be.

I also had to play around a little bit with settings to get my email account working. And of course there are some functions that simply don't exist yet- as you can read here on together.jolla.com

But I would propose to you to share your specific problems, because then you give jolla and the community here the possibility to either give you advice or to track a bug.

So, to be honest, right now your question can only be answered with yes or no and i don't think either of this answers will satisfy you, or others with the same problems. Cheers

the process to setup email account links to read something a compact user interface should is baffling for the beginner. I am looking at links sent, searches via the web, tried various inputs, no luck yet. This is going to be a long project, the old clamshell phone will not retire just yet. Thanks.

Setting up the phone is a lot of work. I think it is not ready for general use.

There should be migration assistant apps for the other systems to help you transfer your stuff, including Android apps and chat histories.
