    Anybody having successful battery life with push email on? Interested to see who uses their email alot and how much it affects you compared to off mainly for those who have no 3G coverage at work for example

    Seems fine here. I can't set up the account as pull since it's Exchange and the mail server doesn't allow for pull access.

    I get email constantly from my Lotus Notes account (yes, I'm on Notes. Unbelievable). It is pushed to my device and I get about 100 emails a day. I can go 16 hours standby with 4 hours usage and still have about 25% battery. Since I usually sleep the other 8 hours of each day, this works out great for me.

    I get roughly 75-100 e-mails a day pushed through my Zimbra account (sets up on the iPhone/iPad as an Exchange server), along with a me.com, yahoo account and a Gmail (non-push) account, and battery life is fine.

    Whether on or off, Push made no difference that I could detect.
    The battery was crappy either way lol

    Not as bad as a lot of what I'm reading about on here though, but i wouldn't call it 'good' battery life. It's just that I could not discern any change in battery performance when i turned it off.

    It's weird considering at work where there is no 3G connection..had push and fetch on battery life went quick but with it off only lost like 8% in 4 hours

    not sure wether to have push on or not...it went fast too when i was out.

    lost like 10% in 4 hours then.
