    Anybody else not receiving notifications on a gmail exchange account? Was fine on iOS6.

    Since beta 6 it's been working for me again. Up until that point Gmail would not push.

    Gmail officially discontinued it earlier this year so I was surprised to see it working again in beta 6 (and it's still working in the GM for me).

    Did you use m.google.com as the server?

    Yes, m.google.com. I didn't touch any of the settings during the entire upgrade process.

    Hmm. Did some experimenting. I have 3 exchange/gmail accounts. 2 of the are displaying push notifications. 1 isn't. Naturally the one that isn't is the main account I use.

    My iPad3 is still fine as always through betas.
    My iPhone had to warrant in May, no exchange sync as expected.

    All as expected here.

    That's not true, I have 3 Gmail Exchange accounts since iOS 6 and all of them have push working on iOS 7 GM.

    You are paying for them ? I don`t know how this will stop working on individual cases but what I know is google is not offering push to new user and new gmail configurations. I`ve reconfigured my wife`s google account on her iPhone 5 and push is not available anymore...only fetch.

    This isn't very helpful to me. See http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=17881281&postcount=6

    I've tried disabling and re-enabling push and the entire offending email account. No joy.

    Correct, there is a JB tweak for iOS 6 which has a workaround, hopefully a JB will be available soon with the tweak ported to iOS7

    Dont think updating iOS kills it. I think the only time you will lose an existing setup now is if you have a new phone for whatever reason or, i think, reconfigure your phone as a new device. Just updating iOS wont kill it.

    I've been using it for ages right through updating to various betas then the GM of iOS7 and push is still working for me.

    That isn't correct. Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync uses the device's serial number to uniquely identify everything that connects to it. The serial number would not change after an upgrade or restore.

    As I understand it, your existing accounts were grandfathered in. I have all my gmail (private and google apps for business) accounts set up as exchange accounts in iOS mail and all work flawlessly.

    I may be wrong though...

    Or IMAP.

    They don't want to continue shelling out to Microsoft for Activesync licensing.

    iCloud doesn't seem to be pushing for me either. This is weird.

    No, I have free accounts. I set up Exchange early this year, than update to iOS7 recently and everything is still there.
