Gmail set up question
Hey everyone! So I have been living under a rock since Jan 27 due to my first child being born . Anyways I have noticed under my gmail I can no longer make a new label on my iPhone. After researching I realize now what is going on with exchange not working and so on. So, freaking out over this because I just can't give up gmail and I love my apple products I took and added my gmail account to my wife's iPod touch and it works perfectly. I can see all my labels, and create and edit labels also and it syncs perfectly with my gmail account. I also ran some tests and sent some emails to myself from my wife's email. And all 5 times I tried the mail came faster to the iPod than to my phone which is set up gmail through exchange. Am I missing something? What would I lose if I would just set it up through the gmail setup on my phone? Thanks and sorry in advance for the ramble. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Gmail set up question
With my Wi-Fi only iPad 2, I get ALL alerts faster than I do on my iPhone. The difference is time is probably a second, though. Anyway, I deleted my Gmail Exchange account on my iPad and set it up using the regular Gmail setup with fetch set to 15 minutes. I then sent myself a test message. The iPhone (configured via exchange) received the test message approximately 5 seconds later, but I have yet to receive the test message via the iPad. I'll send a few more tests throughout the day to see if I can duplicate your experience. I will post an update either way.
