    This is my first iPhone. I read online that the best way to get push notifications for a gmail account is to set it up as exchange. I followed those directions. I still don't get email notifications right away. They arrive about 5 minutes late on average, which may not sound like a lot, but for the volume of email I get in a day, that 5 minute delay is huge for me. MY android would get email at the exact same time, and sometimes earlier, than my gmail in a browser. I've tried deleting the account and re-adding it. This is an iPhone 5 that was set up as new, so I shouldn't be having restore from backup issues. There has got to be a way to get emails instantly. What am I missing?

    It might be a gmail issue. I have not noticed a lag in gmail exchange. I am using a hosted account, is your account hosted or are you using a gmail.com email address?

    I would keep an eye on it. Until then load gmail.com in Safari or another browser and refresh. 5 min is not too bad, I understand you say that's not acceptable for you, but it seems to be a gmail issue not the phone.
