    I've heard that iCloud email doesn't work in WP7, and I'm switching from a 4S to a Lumia 900. I've searched on the Internet but keep finding conflicting reports.

    Does anyone on here use iCloud email with WP7? And if so was it easy to achieve. It was an absolute pain switching from Hotmail to MobileMe when I did, so I'd prefer not to switch email providers again.

    I use iCloud on the Lumia 900 ... it works - it's not push, but it works.

    So do I just have to open the mail app and click refresh myself?

    No, it will check at whatever interval you set - I have mine set to 30 min.

    Use the settings here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4864

    Push is when the network pushes a notification to your phone immediately.

    iCloud on the iPhone will notify you as soon as you get an email - on WP7, you'll get notified whenever the phone checks again.

    Ahh right that's not too bad, I can happily cope with that.
