Slow Email Push on iPhone 4
maybe its just me or because I was one to come over from a blackberry which amazing email push services but it seems that the iphone email push service lags or doesn't push emails at all. Is it only me? Why does the email only get pushed through when I physically enter into the mail app? I never have mail waiting for me in my mail app on my phone when I actually have new received mail in my inbox. It is only when I open the app and it updates, that I receive new mail.
Is this how it normally works or is my push service lagging behind alittle? Someone help me out thanks.

You don't know what service you are using? Google, AOL, Mobile Me, your local internet provider?
No all services push email, so again you need to know what service you are using and then someone can tell you if it can do push or not.
Push eats up a lot of battery.
ok, I had originally set up my email using gmail, but now I set it up using microsoft exchange and it seems to work better now. It seems when I get emailed it automatically pushes it now to my phone, which is what I originally wanted. Gmail would wait for me to open my mail app in order to push the new mail to my phone but thats not what I wanted.
How bad does it get with the battery if im getting emails pushed to my phone?

I use Google Exchange, but only to sync my contacts. I use Gmail IMAP for my email because it is faster, it also syncs my calendar and notes.
I have pushed turned off. My suggestion is try it both ways. I think you'll find I am right that your battery life will take a big hit. Again it also depends how how much email you get. If you just get a few emails a day it maybe okay.
Thanks OTA for your help. Yeah im going to keep it on push to see how bad it gets on battery but I don't get many emails anyways so im sure it wont be that bad...i just need to know when I do get mail cause thats usually when its important. So thanks for all the help.

Like pkang, I just changed from a blackberry where my emails were received very fast. I use my 4s for my business and must receive emails fast in order to capture business. I have push turned on but still don't receive emails very fast. I've already missed 4-5 pieces of business in the 3 days I've used the 4s. Any recommendations? Thanks!
