Since Gmail now doesn't accept new EAS connections on any new non-Android devices, has anyone here swapped out or recently upgraded their iPhone to the iPhone 5 and lost their EAS connections? How has it been switching back to Gmail IMAP? Does it feel strange to be fetching your emails every 15 mins? ---------- I'm trying to keep this IP5 as long as I can, even if something goes wrong and it can be repaired from a repair shop, I will do it. Heading to Apple, the device will be swapped to a new device and I will lose this Gmail EAS connection. I'm thinking of even skipping out on the 5S maybe, I will miss the new hardware and camera upgrades. Unless Apple is willing to repair it, it's maybe worth waiting 3 or 4 weeks for it? I don't want to use a 3rd part app or the official Gmail app for notification alerts purposes, I've used the Boxcar app back in 2009 when Gmail didn't support EAS and rather have the real EAS connection.
