    Not sure if anybody has had the same issue... I've noticed I'm not getting push email from yahoo on my iPhone or straight away but in my iPad goes through straight away

    Anybody else had this issue and any advice why this is happening?

    I have been experiencing the same thing. I tried deleting the account and adding it again to no avail.

    check your push notifications like if they are working properly.

    do other accounts work okay? you should be activated using official unique simcard for your phone.

    btw Yahoo and all othera are technically Fetched not pushed. you need lotus or an exchange account to do the pushing.

    I may be wrong....don't judge me :)

    Annoying

    GMail does not "push" without setting it up as an exchange account, as you mentioned. However, I do believe Yahoo will push to your device.

    Not only is my Yahoo mail not being pushed, it's also not fetching properly. I have it set to 15 minutes on the interval...on many occasions I'll get an email alert and it's multiple emails on my yahoo account with times on them as old as 24 hours or so.

    So you're certainly not alone OP

    ...

    I can't get push anything to work on my iPhone (I have tried every account that will push to an iPhone and none push). They all push fine to my iPad. This was true on 5.1 and 5.1.1. Not sure about earlier firmwares as I switched from android

    Check if push notifications are working.
    Test the iPusher app to see results. You should have unique certificate.

    Imessage, facetime and emails depend on this.

    This happened about 6 months ago as well. It was a problem with Yahoo. I'm guessing that is the case again this time.

    Same thing here since I updated to 5.1.1. I found this thread while searching for the issue on Bing LOL.

    Extremely annoying. Yahoo mail would stop pushing occasionally ever since I had a 3GS, but nothing a quick reboot or delete/add account wouldn't fix. It is not happening on my 4S 5.1.1 after multiple reboots and deleted and re-added all accounts.

    .me account and push

    My .me email account won't push for the past week either. I have done a soft reset, closed the mail app, and neither of those help. Will only get mail when I open the program, so doesn't seem to be fetching on the schedule I have set either. I made sure push is on. .me works fine on iPad 3 . Any other suggestions?.

    Not sure what else go suggest... Can it really be all down to yahoo if push works on the iPad?

    I mentioned having this problem in the earlier reply. Most of the time, the only way I get my Yahoo mail on my phone is to manually fetch

    I don't know. I set up my gmail account as an exchange account on the phone and I don't think I've had any issues with emails not being immediately pushed through.
