    I have 2 emails accounts in my iPhone (gmail and mobile me).

    'Push' is working great with mobile me account. But in the last days it is not working with gmail account.

    Anyone else is experiencing the same problem?

    Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Gmail does not have push, only fetch on the iphone. Does it not fetch the email?

    Take a look in the setting for your email on your iphone.

    Get an app called "Mail Notifier". It will do push notifications for your Gmail account.

    I've been having the same issues since about Weds.

    It's been flawless since Push was enabled about a month or so ago. I usually get a notification on my iphone before Gtalk tells me on my desktop or my browser updates. Currently, my phone doesn't update for 30 to 45 min after the email has been received.

    I don't need instant notification for business, it's a nice to have for personal use.. but it has been a little frustrating going from having instant to not..

    My gmail account has been lagging by up to a few hours on my phone recently. The notifications (from gpush) are correct but mail doesnt show up for a while.

    Well I have been having the same problems as mentioned above. My gmail was working flawlessly for the past month or so, then just 3-4 days ago it quit. Every now and then it will work, but most of the time, the emails are 3-4 hours late showing up.

    if you have google apps you can use gmail and have push.

    you need to set the account up as a MS exchange account. This was google's workaround because apple refuses to be civil with them.

    Just enter the address, you'll have to try it once and not successfully connect before it adds a server field. use m.google.com

    open up MOBILE safari and type m.google.com and hit the link at the top of the page that says something like "using google apps?"

    It'll have you log in and then hit the sync button in the GREEN area, not in the larger white area below. You can set calendar syncing up there and other stuff. Meanwhile, your email will be pushed, along with contacts and calendars.


    Also if you have the google mobile app on your iphone you can enter your google apps domain information there, and be able to link to mobile web-based applications such as docs, etc. Very useful if you use google apps for business.

    Same issues as mentioned above, push has worked great for me since it came out but 3-4 days ago it died. I noticed also when I have a browser window open it doesn't change the tab name to include the (1) when a new email is received. Not sure if it's related but I have to manually click on my inbox for it to show. It used to just auto refresh I guess.
