    Even though I've had .Me since July 11, I finally decided to switch over to use it's email function instead of Gmail. I'm finding though Push doesn't work from .Me to my iPhone. The message is there but I don't get notification until I actually going into Mail. I am wondering though if this is because my iPhone has no AT&T service? I'm basically using it as a Touch right now (plan to give to my daughter in Sept. and she is going to activate it then and I'm getting a 3G then). Is anyone else (especially Touch users), having problems getting Push email via WiFi?

    im pretty sure push only works over cell networks and not over wi-fi.

    That would explain it. Well I'll just do manual syncs until I get my 3G iPhone. Thanks.

    Same for me. I get no ATT service at work, but do get wifi, but no push from mobileme. kinda sux, but I do have my device set to fetch every 15 min, I still don't get my emails on my iphone. I have to open my email then wait for it to go and get the email. I don't like this. The mobileme said it was suppose to push to your Mac over wifi, so why not the iphone over wifi?

    I decided to test this and it appears that Push Mail does work on WiFi.

    Since I have ATT signal strength I decided to put my iPhone in "Airplane Mode" and then restart WiFi. I assume this puts me on WiFi Only, Right?

    I then sent an email to my phone and I received it within seconds (same as before). I did this test twice.

    Can anyone else confirm?

    IT works over wifi with mine, albeit I'm on t-mobile but I turned it on airplane mode and just connected to my wifi and got instant email..
