IPhone Bug ????
Very intermittently my phone does not automatically check for email messages. It will sometimes go the entire overnight period without doing a search for email.
When I pick up the device in the morning and hit the unlock button, it does the search. Rebooting solves the problem for a short time then it fails again.
Hs anyone noticed this problem with their IPhone ????

Welcome to the club. This has been a sleep bug since launch. The only known fix at this time is to reboot the device after you notice that it happens, unfortunately. I used to just reboot the iPhone every morning when I woke up when I first owned an iPhone, and now that I am using one again, I have just continued the habit.

The first time I had the iPhone was from firmware 1.1.1 through 1.1.3 and I had the problem intermittently with all of the firmware revisions. I am now using 1.1.4 and still having the problem.
I hope 2.0 fixes it as well, but I am not hopeful. I really did find that rebooting the phone every morning keeps the occurrences to a minimum, but a real fix would be awesome.

From a Windows Mobile perspective Active Sync is rock solid. So maybe it will be fine for Exchange users. I don't think mobileme will use the same techonology.

I should probably quit worrying, because in a mere 184 hours I will have activestink in OS 2.0...BUT...I have connection problems with our Exchange Server running IMAP. Every so often it just gives a "cannot connect" error message. In addition, I didn't realize your email is not downloaded and you have to be connected even to read old emails...how crappy.

All the time
Very often it happens to me that I check my e-mail from my iPhone and after doing all the pretend connection to the servers, it tells me that I have no new messages (well, it just does not show anything new). However, I log on to my Yahoo account or my Gmail account and there are 5 messages waiting from hours ago. It's just not reliable. I am hoping they will fix this.

Apple Introduces MobileMe Internet Service third line under Pricing and Availability.
60 days sounds like a pretty generous about of free time to me, so I'm guessing they have faith that you'll love it and buy it.
