Hi All - So I have had the phone for about 4 months now. The email is totally unreliable in any configuration, and I think I have come to the bottom of it. Sometimes data transfer on ATT's network just hangs. Doesn't matter how many bars you have, it simply hangs and times out. I know this from Safari, but now I think this may be why email is so slow and unreliable (compared to TMO-BB). Has this been ATT's fault all along? My phone seems to work great on WiFi. Email refreshes in 10 secs, on 3G it often takes over 1 minute to get one new email refreshed in. Not to mention the signal quality at my house in Chicago (60622) seems to change on a weekly basis like they are forever moving towers or having outages. This also explains why some people say they have no troubles while others can't stand the phone. Is it all the network area you are in?
