    I have a Gmail account and that's the account I'm using for my iphone. For some reason it doesn't alert me when I get a new email. In my sound settings it says it's on but it's not alerting me. My friend has a yahoo account and it alerts him. I don't know what the deal is but can someone please help me?? :confused:

    Yahoo enables push which immediately sends email to your phone and alerts you while gmail does not utilize push with the iphone. You could set up a yahoo account on the iphone and forward your gmail to the yahoo account to get immediate notifications.
