Read below for the real answer. In short, you have to register with EA (their "Origin" network).

First you must buy a cat from the animal shelter, then tap on it and an option saying hug will pop up. Hope this helps!

I'm not sure, but has anyone tried tapping on the ad and downloading the game it is for? I'm not sure if that would work...it's just an idea.

You might be able to delete the game off your iPad etc and then download it again. That might help.

What how do you do this ?

This is a bug. This should be addressed to EA so that they can do something to maybe reformat the game or make bug fixes. Maybe this is something we can't fix on our own. Or maybe if there's someone out there who is very techy and would cross all boundaries to fix this. Lol

Hey friend, please don't assume there's a bug when something doesn't work for you. Maybe you didn't follow the instructions??

Read below for the correct way to fix this...

For mailbox problem uninstall game and before you reinstall it change date on phone or iPad to 1st January then reinstall it's the Xmas dates that are causing the glitch

Same problem happened too me! I used to enjoy getting mail, then I took an arrow to the knee.

If you have only checked your mail once, it will not accept it. You have to make an account with EA first. Every day you will get rewards for playing. After you log in with "origin" (EA) , then you can check your mail and complete the goal. Hope I helped

The key to fixing the bug is to change the date past december 26.
But when you do you need to disconnect your origin account so the mail box refreshes.


You can do this by following these steps:

- close the sims app (not just minimize. Double click home button and hold sims icon on bottom list of open apps, then close)

- reset date to after dec 25 (go to settings>general>date and time> change date

- disconnect Internet (settings>general>network>wifi and 3g>off)

- start sims (app will say you need to connect to internet)

- minimize sims go back and turn on internet in settings

- go back to app (app will load and mailbox will be reset with new mail and you can continue your game)

Note: if you go back to your sims app and all your sims haven't wet themselves (all stats depleted) your origin account wasn't disconnected. Try again.
Also if you want to soft reset your iOS device (credit to Simon M), that will probably work too.

The key is to not let app know that you are changing time (I.e. Time suddenly jumps a day, stats are frozen) it needs to think you actually haven't been playing for those days (I.e. Origin disconnect).

Good luck and merry christmas!

Hey well how did you even past that task

 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 21st Dec 2011, ID #465083
When I checked my mail the first time (but it didn't registra)it came up with info on the town. This was about 7 at night. On the 'help' button it says to check it everyday, so maybe the new mail arives at whatever time you checked the first one? And does anyone know how to create a new house/ business?

When you have whistled your sim to the park, tap on them and they can commence tai chi session.
