    ........
    jlb as far as the issues go, I honestly don't think either Apple or Yahoo will attempt to "correct" the issue unless enough people complain. Just from what I've seen, a lot of people are using gmail these days.....I don't see to many yahoo'ers anymore.

    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'm with you on this Lynda. I've had a yahoo email addy for about 3-4yrs now, and i can honestly say in the past 4mths(since sept.2010) when Yahoo changed their TOS, is when i noticed very glitchy email service with them. Now, at the time i still had my blackberry 9650 and even THEN my yahoo would act up and send, not send-recieve, not receive....ugh !! it was a PITA !!

    SO, when i got my iPhone4S in Nov.2010 and added my yahoo acct, i still had glitchy-ness here and there, but because i had issues prior to my iPhone, i would def say its yahoo. I still have my yahoo acct. on my iPhone, i havent done the gmail thing YET because its been behaving, although this week on Wed., it was acting up a bit but nothing to write home about, lol.

    Eh !! one of these days i WILL get completely fed up with it and do the gmail thing !!

    I tried to set up my yahoo to forward, bit when I go to the forward section in options, nothing happens. Is forwarding only available for yahoo+?

    Seems even worse for me now. Almost as if there is no "push" at all.

    There is one part of me that is hoping that this is due to them changing how they handle it to make it better....but I doubt it....

    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.

    My husbands hasn't been pushing either. It's working for me at the moment but I have found yahoo to always be hit or miss. Might be time to make a switch. It's just such a pain!

    Yup Yahoo email still down for push email for me. My me.com is currently working with push but never know when it will stop working. My gmail is 99.9% uptime for push.

    Mine is fine. I have a gmail address for ecommerce stuff and 2 other domains managed by google apps that use gmail interface. Those 3 are fine on iPhone 4S with ATT.

    I wonder if it's the phone. I had to get it swapped out yesterday at the Apple store for a different issue. Maybe this one is buggy?

    Bumping this up, because I think it's FIXED! Tried it today by removing the forward on my Yahoo account and, so far anyway, it's actually pushing!

    Just tested. Finally! I was really dreading changing totally to gmail. Not that I dislike gmail, but changing addresses is a lot of work with all my online accounts.
