So ever since I migrated from mobileme to iCloud, my push email has been spotty at best. Any one else having this issue?

here is the link to the apple forums on the issue. Its seems like some of the people have been having the issue for months, and some of us it just started on or around may 23rd or 24th.

It may not actually have anything to do with the iCloud upgrade, I just happened to upgrade shortly before the mentioned dates.

I've had push issues popping up here and there for a while, mostly on my phone. A restart usually fixes it, but it is annoying nonetheless.

I fear my issue is nowhere near that simple. My phone has gone dead several time since then, and I still have the issue.

Push on OS X continues to work perfectly... but in the last week or so it has not worked worth a damn on my iPhone. I don't think it is you. I think iCloud Mail is having push problems.

I have noticed if I go into the system tray and force quit Mail, then restart it, it will work for a while. But not long.

Same here. Just realized I'm having the issue pop up again too. Restart fixed it at first, but it is back again. Not sure if it is a server side issue or a problem with iOS (I'm on 5.1.1)

I think it is a server side issue. My push mail was working fine all along after 5.1.1 until the last few days.

Been having this issue since last Wed or Thursday too, as other people in the apple support thread have corroborated. This is getting ridiculous.

Mine no longer pushes at all. PITA. The funny part is i think MobileMe was better than iCloud. :rolleyes:
