What is up with Yahoo push??
For some reason email is not being pushed to my iphone 3G from my Yahoo account. This has been going on for abut 3 weeks. I don't have mobileme. I only get email notifications when I go into the mail app. If I turn 3G off though, push starts working again. I've tried deleting the account and re-adding it, but nothing works except turning off 3G. Anyone else experiencing this?

Yahoo has been hit or miss for me. Most of the time it works fine. But every couple of weeks or so it just stops. Deleting and re adding the account works sometimes, but not always. It will just start working again after a day or two. Sorry I don't have an answer.

This has been going on since the first iPhone with Yahoo. Get what you pay for and the Yahoo "push" is not very reliable. There are a few older threads about the same topic. It's just something Yahoo users will have to deal with.

Yeah it works well with 3G off, but in my case it doesn't work at all with 3G on. That just leads me to believe it's a 3G problem. I know Yahoo is free, but the phone certainly wasn't. I purchased the phone under the impression that Yahoo Push was reliable. And it was reliable up until about 3 weeks ago, and is reliable still with 3G off.

For me I average 5-10 emails a day (17 yr old don't get much important stuff)...and only 1-2 of those gets pushed to my phone. This only happens when im in the vicinity of my house's wireless. Whenever I'm at school or anywhere else I never receive my email even though i know im getting it at home. I don't care that much as of now...
i just hope when i go to college and start using my college's email A LOT MORE that it does not do this otherwise i might be looking at a different phone
oh yeah it's been doing this since i've got the phone at the end of the summer. nothing's fixed it yet.

Thanks for the responses. Can anyone else that is having unreliable Yahoo push try turning off 3G and see if that works? Since I turned off 3G I have been getting emails pushed nearly instantly for 3 days. I sent like 10 test emails today with 3G off and it worked fine. Once I turn 3G on, it stops pushing.

I have an unlocked iphone 3G on T-Mobile and for some reason, my push isn't working. I do not have the 3G on, (not like it would work anyway), and it doesnt push for nothing. Any idea's anyone? Also, I have my work email set up and i had to use the "Other" option when i set it up because for some reason, the Microsoft Exchange option would not work. The problem is the mail only come through on my iphone only if i have not looked at it on my work cpu. So basically, if i look at it on my work cpu, it wont come through at all on my phone. even if i click send receive. My co-worker have a wing, (a windows phone) and he does not have this problem. Also, when i had my blackberry, i did not have this problem either. Im a new iphone use and any help would be helpful.

I'm hoping when I get my school address for college things will change.
and about turning 3G off..that's cool if it works but i find it stupid to have to turn a setting on an off to receive emails. anyway i use 3G all the time where i'm at and think 3G is more important than receiving a few lousy emails.
