Should I wait for my daily reward to come.
Guest said: 29th Jan 2017 | REPORT
That is what I think too. I think you should just wait for your Daily Reward and maybe that will be it. I just really want it to be now because I had just checked my mailbox and then the task came up. It doesn't even say how, it just says "let's see what the postie brang. Check your mailbox!"
Guest said: 21st Jun 2017 | REPORT

Guest said: 22nd Dec 2016 | REPORT
Wait until the next day I had the same problem. It's really annoying
Guest answered:

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?

You have to wait usually until the evening when the mailbox icon lights up after your sims have been paid. When you click on it as you do every day to get the money then you have also completed the check mail task.
Guest said: 14th Oct 2014 | REPORT
No actually you check it on a computer
Guest said: 5th Nov 2014 | REPORT
So do u need a update?

that's tapped out.....
Guest answered:

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:

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.

Pravinj answered:

Same thing is happening to me!! I wrote about it on the app review, but I don't know if they check that. Like is there a way for them to know

DOODYDUM answered:

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.

Once you have bought the ball you need to get it from your inventory and actually use it, it takes 1 hour

ayeCEE answered:

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:

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!

maplemoon answered:

Make sure you check all your Houses mail boxes there should be a bubble above it which you need to tap

iamjammy77 answered:

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:

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:

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:

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:

Every day you have daily mail you have to click on a icon above the mail box❗❗❗

Bakergirl answered:

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 Smile

Guest answered:

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:

You have to buy a computer and click on it. One of the options is to check mail

That's email.
Guest answered:

In front of every house, there's a mailbox next to the trash can. When your daily reward has arrived, there'll be a pulsing mail and exclamation mark sign above the mailbox. Just tap that to collect the reward Smile

I've never even seen an icon above the mailbox, no matter what time of the day.
Guest answered:

You have to collect your daily reward from your letterbox. Basically nearly every day you get an envelope with money on top of your mailbox you click several days and that is it

Guest answered:

If you want to check your e-mail you need a laptop/computer and then it will say as an option to check your email , sorry if this does not help.

Guest answered:

Try waiting for the daily earnings to come in. When they do, click on it to earn the money and finish the Quest.

Guest answered:

I don't think you can I tried everything and it sais that but I don't think anyone really knows x

Guest answered:

Collect daily reward to "check mail"

Guest answered:

To check a mailbox in Sims freeplay you have to see if the Simoleons sign is above it if it is then tap on it if it is not there then you have to wait because the mail is not ready yet
