    Are all your apps getting their information though the same push connection email uses? Or are there 2 connections being opened constantly with Apple's servers? This is huge because having push email AND push apps loaded at the same time will be a burden on the battery.

    Anyone know?

    Push Service

    I have loved the iphone since I got my first one the 3G last year. And I have been waiting for the new one, and for the 3.0 in anticipation that it would be that much better and with the push notification would be a nice added bonus. After now using the new 3G s and the 3.0 I would say that so far the push is a joke. There are very few applications that even have it when they made it seem like most of the applications would have it.

    Lol, give it time. Applications with push support are only now starting to be released by Apple, sheesh. It's been less than a week.

    AP Mobile is starting to send more out and I got a heat advisory from WeatherUpdate this morning.

    It works great! The only real app that I cared about having push for was IM, and now that it's available I'm happy. If they come up with some other great uses for it that'll just be a bonus.

    All I know is push makes my phone super hot and drains battery like 1%/min. :mad: I turned it off.

    1%/min?! That's not right! Might want to get that looked at.

    I use AIM (paid version) pretty regularly, and it was updated yesterday for 3.0.

    I've been using it most of the day and it works great; it's a very nice alternative to SMS.

    Yup, 1%/min I'm not kidding. It literally drained from 100% to off in 2 hours, while I was using the phone to cook my egg (not really but almost).:mad: Turning push off made it all go away thou. :confused:

    Are you using a jailbroken / unlocked phone? There are issues with push notifications and phones unlocked or jailbroken with redsn0w: basically they don't have a valid machine certificate and the push servers refuse the connection.
    The phone keeps trying to connect and keeps getting refused with the end result of very hot phones and very short battery life
