    Using my Yahoo account and it keeps telling me password is incorrect. I logged into it on my PC and it is correct. Any idea? Rebooted and removed account (now I can't add it).

    EDIT: Seems to be Apple's fault. Both Yahoo account are down on my device. Guess I just have to wait.

    I had the same issue with Gmail. Apparently mine was a little more severe since it was infected and began sending spam messages. A quick password change fixed all that for me.

    As for Yahoo, mine still works on my iPhone. I'm not too sure why it won't let you re-add the Yahoo account.

    It works now. I don't know why but apple.yahoo.com was down, at least for me.

    It's an iPhone problem, it gives you an error saying it can't connect to the server or something like that, right?
