Ive had this re-occurring issue all the way back to my 3gs. Now my 4 is exhibiting the same behavior. I have all email accounts, except mobileme, set to manual as I don't want them to update unless i go into the mail client. However at random times they update on there own anyway. mainly whenever the contact app is used. Can someone please review the following setting and see if they have any suggestions? Anyone else have the same issue? push = on (for mobileme i assume?) fetch = manual yahoo = manual mobileme = push comcast = manual gmail = manual us holidays = fetch nascar calender = fetch I have also tried setting all accounts that are set to manual to fetch hoping that the fetch setting being set to manual would take care of it, but nothing changed any recommendations?
