I got mail on it twice...some random stuff like uve reached the next level for you're sim...but twice I clicked on the mailbox n the task is still not complete. (the mailbox is they grey metal thing,opposite the trashcan,across the garden path)
Maybe it's a bug and we should wait for an update?

I just recently started "Sims Freeplay" on my I phone 4. Everything task that has been given to me has been handled accordingly. However, the last task that was given to me was to check my mail. I check my mail, but the task kept saying check your mail box.. I don't know if it was because it didn't register it or because the other sims mail box needs to be checked? Can you please help?
Guest answered: Added 20th Dec 2011, ID #464927
I'm having the same problem. I'm just waiting for the mail to come back.
Guest answered: Added 20th Dec 2011, ID #464929
Exactly the same thing is happening to me too, it's extremely annoying!
Guest answered: Added 20th Dec 2011, ID #464989
Same thing happened to me so I reset the game and it happened it again! :( I was starting to like this game! Any other cool games I can download on my ipad?
Guest answered: Added 20th Dec 2011, ID #465009
Don't worry! They have just made an update that fixes the problem. Just update it and it will work!
Guest answered: Added 21st Dec 2011, ID #465063
The game has recently been updated, before when the little icon came above the mailbox and you clicked on it it wouldn't do anything. Now however when you click on it it says that you have done that task
I hope this helped

I'm having the same problem... & I see that all of you are too. Update the app, it's just a glitch. I updated it last nIght & the daily mail hasn't come yet, but I'm sure it will tomorrow. Hope I helped... (:

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
Guest answered: Added 12th Jan 2012, ID #472690
You must update the game. It was a glitch that has now been fixed.
Guest answered: Added 10th Feb 2012, ID #481477
I changed the date on my phone settings, and then it worked. I then changed the date back the correct date.
Guest answered: Added 19th Feb 2012, ID #484163
It does work. You just need to be logged into orgin to get your daily reward
Guest answered: Added 14th Apr 2012, ID #498708
You can only check your mail once every day,on any mailbox it will have an icon in a speech bubble above the mail box.when that pops up you click the mail box and you'll get rewarded money.
Guest answered: Added 18th May 2012, ID #507951
Um, I'm pretty sure you're supposed to click and receive the daily reward? I'm going to do it, but I got the money a goal before the check your mail one. You do it by clicking the cloud thing over the mailbox.

DOODYDUM answered: Added 27th Jun 2012, ID #518799
You have to update sims first, then collect the reward. Cause E.A basically prevented us to complete this goal :| to force us to update.

It says go to the hobby store and buy a soccer ball I did and it still didn't work pls help idk what to do :(
Guest answered: Added 31st Jul 2012, ID #527281
Once you have bought the ball you need to get it from your inventory and actually use it, it takes 1 hour

Do you know how you get your daily reward in your mailbox everyday? Just wait for that to come up on the day that goal is being set or the next day.
Guest answered: Added 6th Nov 2012, ID #549366
You have to wait until the mail comes and then tap it the mail only comes every like 24hours or something like that. Hope this helps!
Guest answered: Added 29th Nov 2012, ID #554188
Hello young fellows the reason why is you have reached a higher level so do not get daily mail anymore
Guest answered: Added 31st Dec 2012, ID #561088

Wait until you get a daily reward or skip the goal for 5lp points
Guest answered: Added 19th Jan 2013, ID #565633
U buy a computer then check it
maplemoon answered: Added 20th Jan 2013, ID #565936
Make sure you check all your houses mail boxes there should be a bubble above it which you need to tap
iamjammy77 answered: Added 3rd Feb 2013, ID #568944
You will need to wait until a speech bubble pops up over the mail box with an envelope in it...once every 24 hours.
Guest answered: Added 21st Feb 2013, ID #572349
Me too. What can I do to complete "check the mail" ? I must waiting daily reward or do 'check email' on the computer ?
Guest answered: Added 14th Mar 2013, ID #576697
I used LP to skip the goal and the damned postbox lit up with new mail as soon as I hit the continue button after skipping the goal. Must be a bug.
Guest answered: Added 31st Mar 2013, ID #580178
Skip the goal or wait for your daily reward I guess. I'm on this too and I'm making all my sims (preteen and adult) do their hobbies for around 8 hours so that when that is done I will most likely be able to check my mail. - hope this helped
Guest answered: Added 1st Apr 2013, ID #580419
Every day you have daily mail you have to click on a icon above the mail box❗❗❗
Bakergirl answered: Added 3rd Apr 2013, ID #580744
It's easier if you have game centre if you have it then login and add friends the more friends the higher the bonus you get I've got 32 friends from game centre and Facebook that play and my bonus is 3200 odd a day and it goes up even more I'll get you started add me on it: bakergirl98

To check mail there is a time when it's time a sort of mail sign will pop up on top of it meaning you have received mail.
Guest answered: Added 16th May 2013, ID #587890
You have to buy a computer and click on it. One of the options is to check mail

Guest answered: Added 10th Jul 2013, ID #596063
Maybe it means check your email 💩💩💩
Onedirectionrox answered: Added 1st Aug 2013, ID #599183
I checked my email, and sadly, it didn't work...😢 But I'm pretty sure you have to wait for your daily reward... Because that's the same as checking the mail, right? So I'm pretty sure it's that!!!☺
Guest answered: Added 14th Oct 2013, ID #605479
