    The earliest settings is 15 minutes.
    Is that why?

    Yes it does. Half the time it pushes and half the times it doesn't.

    So the only way to get gmail instantly is by setting it up through exchange? I kept trying to figure this out and the best I could do was fetch every 15mins which seemed like it would drain the battery a ton

    I set mine up as exchange and the push is still intermittent.

    I think having fetch set to 15minutes will waste LESS battery then having push enabled.

    Can someone absolutely confirm which method will waste less battery?

    I have my fetch set to 30mins...I tried out push and it worked great, but I need to have on bluetooth, wifi and location services, siri, and notifications too, so I opted to leave push out.
