  1. I have no email 1x1email account widget

    1. Hi MFer,
      Thanks for coming.
      FYI, when I replied your comment a couple days back in my other post, I forgot to tell you that when I wrote about the Email account 1x1 widget, the phone was still using Android 4.0 ICS (my bad, I'm so sorry about it). Seems the Email account 1x1 widget has been removed when it updated to Android Jelly Bean. I can't find this widget in my Samsung Galaxy phones either.
