One common problem you'll find in the corporate environment is your email client unable to decrypt the email.
Encryption is set up on e mails, especially in the enterprise and corporate environments, for security for safety concerns. Instead of using a built in corporate email system, you may be using a client version of the Microsoft outlet. It that is the case. It may not have the proper
private keys, and they can't decrypt without that private keys.
So what you'd have to do is get the corporate version of the Microsoft outlet or whatever evil character using, and you may have some situations. Go to the MGM, the mobile device manager, to have those keys reissued out to you again. Short battery life is another problem with mobile devices.
This could be because of
bad reception. You could be in the area where there's no signal service and your phone is always searching for a signal. So therefore, it's using the battery to search for that signal. And this situation like this, you may want to use airplane mode. Airplane mode will turn your phone off from looking for a wireless channel or connection

that will die down. So it may be time to replace that battery
in rare situations. You may have a swollen battery, and this is a buildup of gases inside of your battery. Now these batteries are self contained, and that's the way they're built. They're built to be a self contained unit. Do not open the battery pack or the packet or two container, it could be significant fire risk.
