So here's my current deal. I have done all the suggested things and over time is still have some intermittent issues with Yahoo mail being received timely.
So for now I, too, have set up a gmail account. I have given that address to family, close friends, and anyone else for which I want to make sure I receive the mail timely. Everything else, for now, I am leaving with Yahoo....not nearly as time critical.
Also, I have spoken with folks on both the Apple iOS and Yahoo who side who say the "issue" is being worked on. On the iOS side, I have been in contact with an iOS senior developer (transferred to him from the phone support line). For yahoo, whomever controls the @yahoomail twitter feed caught on to my issues via my tweets and asked for more info and said the issue is being looked at.
Of course, noone may REALLY be looking at it, but that, again, is why I setup gmail for some of my contacts to use.

I have had issues with Yahoo mail pushing a couple of times but deleting the account and reloading it always fixed the problem. Until yesterday. Nothing I've done has fixed it - I have deleted and reloaded the account multiple times; several times I've hard-rebooted the phone before reloading the account. Still no joy. I am now forwarding yahoo mail to my .me account for the time being while I decide what to do. I've had this yahoo email address for 14 years and hate to give it up. It's been my experience that tying to talk to a real person at yahoo only ends in anger and frustration and a complete lack of satisfaction, so I haven't even gone that route yet.

I've been having issues for almost 5 days now. I've deleted my email account from the phone and reloaded it, didn't fix it. Nothing I do seems to work. Someone mentioned forwarding email to another address. How do you do that?

To forward to another email address: at the top of the Yahoo mail page on your computer, click "Options - Mail Options." That will lead you to the opportunity to forward to another address. You will have to confirm your forwarding request via email - which is ironic considering the circumstances. This will result in email being pushed - in my case I now get duplicates of every email - one on my Yahoo account and one on my .me account. And my phone alerts twice with each email I receive, which makes no sense to me at all.
I am convinced that this is a Yahoo problem, not a cellular provider issue, nor is it a problem within Apple.

I purchased Yahoo Plus ($20/yr.) so that my email would work with iCloud (POP needed) and I was hoping push notifications would improve with Yahoo's premium service. It didn't. I decided to switch from Yahoo to Gmail, so I spent most of the past weekend notifying my contacts, changing my email address in eBay, Paypal, Facebook and a hundred or so other accounts, creating a new Apple ID, etc, etc. It was a PITA, but now it's done.
Gmail pushes to my iPhone 4S in seconds (I've done several tests). Works flawlessly.
Bite the bullet and move on to an email provider that plays well with the iPhone.
