    This is really annoying me now.

    I have Gmail on my iPhone, with both Push and Fetch disabled completely.

    However, if I open up my contacts list to make a phonecall, my iPhone decides to pull all my emails in even though I didn't open Email...

    What is going on?

    Yeah I noticed this before, even on my old 3G.

    What's most annoying is I bought an iPhone expecting high quality, with good customer support and bug fixing, but so far I have been very unimpressed.

    Apple slipping?

    I'm finding my mail isn't being pushed anymore. I have to manually check it even though the settings are for push.

    I had this too - removing the email account and re-adding fixed it for me.

    What's the point of having an email account on your iPhone if you don't want email (by disabling push and fetch)? The fetch is just timed so it knows how often to fetch in the background, but you manually fetch by unlocking the iPhone (or if already unlocked, opening mail).

    Does not happen for me going to contacts list via Contacts app. Are you actually making the call and having it pull in the e-mails, or just visiting the Contacts list?

    Also, if you don't want to be bothered with email notifications and only want to check email manually, get rid of the built-in mail account and use m.gmail.com and make a webclip of it. The mobile website interface is quite excellent.

    mine does this as well and I have posted the same question several times. never gotten an answer.

    I have push set to off and fetch set to manual. all accounts set to manual. it randomly updates emails when it feels like it. mostly when I go into the contact app, check contacts from the phone app, or sometime when I just use an app that uses a data connection. it's annoying. if I want to check emails, i'll check them on my own

    It sounds like going into contacts autopopulates the mail app with the contacts email addresses and this triggers fetch as a side effect. But what's the point of the mail app and its notification system if you don't want it to push or fetch for you? Just use m.gmail.com as a webclip.

    Other than this one bug that hasn't been fixed in the one minor software update they have released in the month since the device has been out, what bad customer support experiences have you had?

    Wait.... You're trying to say Apple's slipping, because..... your mail downloads when you open contacts? give me a break.

    Junk mail as in spam or useless mail from companies that you do business with? If it's spam, you need to get a provider with better spam filter (like Gmail). If the latter, use the mobile website like m.gmail.com , m.hotmail.com , m.yahoo.com/mail etc. But even so, fetch uses almost negligible battery power.

    I have two Gmail accounts. One is for personal communication only and is set up within the mail app (so I won't be bothered with junk mail from companies). I access the other account via the mobile site when necessary.

    just general spam. I use my yahoo account as my default personal account. I don't want to use the mobile site and safari to check email, I want to use the built in mail app. I simply want it to not check for new mail unless I open the mail app. I have it setup that way! why is it too much to ask to get it to function that way?

    I'm having similar issue with the Mail app checking mail while I'm in the Phone app or on a call. I can here the mail checked tone go off.
    All settings are set to manual.
    This is on iPhone 4 with 4.01

    I have figured out a fix for your problem. Take the damn phone back, and get something else.
