    I've set up my gmail aswell Hotmail , after finishing the set-ups, I looked at the advanced settings of "fetch new data" and notice that only Hotmail is set-up for "push" and gmail is set-up for "fetch", fetch and manually are the only options available. Could somebody please give me a hand on how to convert to push on gmail.

    On my IP4, I remember following googles instructions on how to set up gmail manually but the input settings on IP5 are a bit different and well I'm kinda lost. :confused:

    Try setting up as an "Exchange" account, and you should get push

    Email - full email
    Domain -
    Username - the bit before @ on your email
    Password - normal pw
    Use SSL - On

    That should get you going...

    Just tried it there, this didn't work either :confused:

    I should add that, unlike the OP, I DO have the option for push when I set mine up, but it isn't working :confused:

    Domain leave blank. After you hit verify a server box will appear. Enter in there instead.

    I've done it that way as long as I can remember, and it works on my iPad with the *exact same settings*. My iPhone does not receive pushed mail at all, so I've been looking at that new pull-to-refresh animation a lot more than I originally expected.
