iphone 4 n00b - email questions
coming from berry (which i will now just use as work phone) i am finding the iphone email slow. so far i only added gmail to the iphone and its definitely slow. what can i do to speed it up?
i read theres different options for adding gmail.... the regular way, exchange and mobileme. is there any good guide on the pros/cons?
also, i have imap enabled on my gmail.

You're not going to get the same push you did/do with the BlackBerry because iPhone doesn't have the BIS/BES system. If you set your gmail up as an exchange you will get the push you're used to. Any other types of email (Yahoo, etc) won't get that without first forwarding to a gmail.

i use exchange and it will never compare to bberry email. attachments are a joke..have to download it and when forwarding it thinks forever unless on wifi. Trust me the i4 is great but for talking clarity and email the bberry bold kills iphone still. I just got my 11 in air and along w 4 g card i no longer need the iphone. I am going to get the new bold touch this summer because i email alot of large attachments and talk 3000-4000 mins a month..i4 sucks for that

Can someone please explain this to me, I had HTC EVO got email instantly then i went over and got Palm Pre had to enable Imap on my GMail Account, and selected the option of get email soon as it arrives, does the iPhone 4 have this option? I am going to be getting the the i4 so I would like to know cause I am a heavy email user. On the Pre it has several different times I can get my email from soon as it arrives to like every hour. Does apple provide these kind of options?
is there any app like social feeds on blackberry for iOS? it was so convenient on the berry to just open that and see all the updates from facebook, twitter and bbm in one place.
can you make a backup of your iphone like how u can with desktop manager with berry? so just in case i lose my phone al my emails, contacts etc are backed up. i believe rim even launched a free app called plackberry protect that did it wirelessly.
