LG Accolade VX5600 (Verizon) E-Mail Alert ?

How do you turn the damn thing off???

I’ve called verizon and they say it’s a yahoo problem. I tried to find alert settings on yahoo, but couldn’t.

I downloaded the manual on the model (discontinued), but it doesn’t address that particular alert.

I’ve been through all combinations of settings on the phone but nothing works.

The only way I’ve been able to make it stop alerting me I have mail is to shut if off, but I don’t want to do that, in case of an emergency.

Does anyone have this phone with e-mail app and can you help?
