    It appears that my iPhone has not received a push from MobileMe all day today. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Are both of you using 3G iPhones? I feel like I'm paying more since I upgraded for crappier service.

    Yeah, it just worked for me. However I wonder if it's because mail was the last app I used and it was like 10 minutes about i want to wait like 45 min to an hour and try it again

    Umm, I don't think Gmail has push and Entourage is just and email client so the push (if your husband has it) would be coming from the email server or if using MobileMe the cloud. Are you sure you aren't thinking about the email fetch settings?

    Yeah...I suppose I meant that. :p
    His email is coming from a server...so at that point is his problem with the push?...or with the server?

    Impossible to answer without more information such as the type of email server he is connecting to.

    There have been many threads on this issue and it is known by Apple and they are supposedly working on it. The temporary workaround is to force the email app on the iPhone to close by going to email and holding down the home button for several seconds until the email app is force closed and then going back into email.

    So this problem isnt just a Yahoo problem. It effects ALL push email services on iPhone?

    It has been up and down for me with my mobile me account. I have my yahoo account set up as fetch only so I'm not sure about it.

    Update INC

    So you guys know, "Push" isn't really fully active in its true form right now. What we get now is every 15 mins it will manual set a push to go thought. There is an upcoming update coming shortly in September which will not only fix the security issues but will enable full time push. If you aren't getting even the 15 min push, take a 2nd look at your settings.

    Note: This has been confirmed by Apple Computers.

    Push email IS supposed to be fully active. The push they're referring to is push for other applications (such as AIM).

    All push is limited to every 15 minutes. This includes email and 3rd party apps.

    I don't think that is accurate since when push is working I can get multiple emails only a couple of minutes apart and it gives me a notification for each one. This may be true for third party apps but I've experience a different scenario with email. Besides what would be the point of Push since you can set your phone to Fetch every 15 minutes anyway? The purpose of push is to instantly grab data when it shows up on the server. For Apple's case with MobileMe it is calendars, contacts, and email all of which are pretty much instant (maybe a 3-4 second delay) when it is working the way it is suppose to.

    Firstly "All push is limited to every 15 minutes. This includes email and 3rd party apps." is not true.

    On your iphone it says every 15 minutes if push IS NOT ACTIVATED.

    Secondly seems like it's down AGAIN. It's been 2 months now, it's getting silly. Not to mention all my appointments randomly change time, which makes mobile me useless right now.

    It may be so that email is normal push, but 3rd party apps like aim don't work yet. This feature will be setup in the up coming patch. I can't wait to have aim work all the time.

    Same crap here. I had it working again for a couple days. I deleted the account and then added it back, which fixed it for temporarily, but now it's back off. GRRRRR.
