    I had an iphone 3g when it first came out but returned it 14 days later. I was having a horrible time getting email - i had it set up to check for email every 15 min, but it would literally take hours to get emails. I really miss the iphone and am really considering another ~ just curious if anyone else experienced email problems and if they have been corrected with software updates?

    When the iPhone is in 'sleep' mode meaning the screen is completely black. it won't even fetch e-mails..much yet push.

    if reliable push email is really important to you, I would probably go with a BlackBerry over an iPhone. Email retrieval is really spotty... I have it checking a gmail account, and it automatically fetches emails 25% of the time (what it's supposed to do), pushes emails 25% of the time (gmail doesn't have push, yet this happens sometimes), and I have to retrieve them manually 50% of the time. It's really inconsistent.

    the 2.0 update killed my last gen iphone in more ways then one. it stopped searching for new mail all together. ever since the 2.1 update, its been retrieving my mail pretty regularly (on average, mabey 3 or so minutes after the email actually reached my mail account). i assume your using 2.1 right?
