well with 2.0.2 my mail was pushed within 30seconds.Wirelessly posted (iPhone: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 2_1 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/525.18.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.1.1 Mobile/5F136 Safari/525.20)
That may not be caused by the 2.1 update. I don't know this for sure though. I've personally been very pleased with the 2.1 firmware. It has been very stable and has improved battery life, backup time, and several other things. The only thing I don't really care for is the new edge and 3g icons but that is merely personal preference.
I don't see how 2.1 firmware would effect Yahoo's 3rd party email server, or any reason why it would handicap the push function to Yahoo. It is likely the server itself.yahoo mail.
2.1 is starting to suck even more.
the only good thing is now i get a little bit better battery life.
i had no problems with 2.0.2 otherwise.
hmmm... interesting. i just posted in another thread that my mail just fetched itself. i realize why now. i'm playing music now, so the phone isn't asleep anymore. they have got to fix this. we now need 2.1.1!!!It appears as though in many cases, the phone is not fetching/pushing e-mail when the phone is in sleep mode AND it is not connected to a power source.
