    i have an iphone 3g JB unlocked with tmobile.
    I have push, fetch all off and set to manual. Whenever I open Maps, or in a call, the Mail app turns on and retrieves my mail. I dont want to do that because it drains battery. I want to choose when to retrieve. post a fix please.

    I believe everytime you open mail it auto-refreshes. It's supposed to do that. Just opening your email isn't going to make THAT much of a difference on battery life. If you are opening it every five minutes than maybe, but just on occasion it shouldn't be a big deal.

    a) No way to prevent this.
    b) Virtually no impact on battery life unless you have 10 accounts.

    the battery is not my main concern. i just dont want the Mail app to open unless i choose to open it. I have 3 accounts.
