Setting up your calendar and syncing contacts in iOS

If you sync your calendar or contacts on your iOS device to your BT Yahoo email address, you need to set up your calendar and contact syncing to Yahoo email so that you can continue to use your synced services while your email is with Yahoo.

After we move you to BT Mail, your iOS device settings need to be updated so that they will sync with BT Mail. Look out for an email from us to say you've been moved to BT Mail, as it'll give you a link to instructions on how to set up your calendar and contact syncing for BT Mail.
