    I was wondering if anyone has used this from Cydia? It allows you to fetch your mail every minute. I used it for a couple days but noticed it drained my battery very fast, has anyone had better luck? Thanks.

    (Every minute) Of course it's gonna drain your battery ! :eek:

    You can't wait for 15 minutes to have your email downloaded ?

    If it's that urgent, have people text you !

    Look, anyone can figure out if you are gonna have that dinky little battery push mail every minute, 60 times an hour, your gonna kill the battery.

    What did you expect ?

    Everyone has told you virtually the same thing.

    What reaction did you expect ???

    You are having an issue, my iPhone is doing just what I expect it to do.

    Ummm... He's having an issue, that's why he posted. You apparently have nothing to say on this topic.

    I commented on the developers Youtube video and got no response back. They said this would use less battery than setting your update to the lowest setting, but I think it's all BS. There is no way. All this app is doing is forcing check and draining your battery.

    Ymail is so unpredictable, but I deal with it, regretfully. Sometimes I get my emails "pushed" to me a day late. Rarely, but sometimes.

    As for urgent... I didn't get an SMS plan. Ymail is as urgent as it gets for me.

    If I remember correctly, you have to pay for this package?

    I used to know a way how to do it yourself by adding one or two lines of code to a file in the iphone. Don't remember it right now and don't have time to find it, but if you're interested I'll have a look tonight after work?

    Hey thanks for your help, but as far as i know it is a free application. I already deleted the app but in the future if they have an update where it doesnt drain as much battery i might take a look into it as it did work well. Thanks once again though.

    I didn't see that you unlocked your phone, so perhaps you are still using AT&T.

    They have a 200 text message (per month, counts incoming and outgoing) for $5. I use that as I generally don't have but 2 or 3 texts a day. Maybe an option for you ?

    As far as my 1st post, the OP asked why his battery was running down so quickly. Fetching mail once a minute, that's why (as you seem to agree the app you are using is doing that also). That's it.

    Thanks, but I checked how many I generally send with Ymail and it's more than 200/month. I'd just go over. Also, $5 * 12mo is $60 per year. I can do with Ymail for now. Do you know if AT&T has unlimited in network texting with that? So like AT&T to AT&T doesn't count to the 200?

    Yea, they count AT&T to AT&T in that 200. No breaks !

    If you are on a single plan (not a family plan), I believe unlimited is $20 month.

    Pretty steep for texting, but then, as stated, I'm a light user.
