Is there another setting I need to use to have my email pushed to my phone? I have it set to push but is doesn't update until I open it. I just got the iPhone from an Android device so I'm still learning some of the features and things. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What email are you using? If you are using yahoo there is a known problem with the push aspect. As in it doesn't work. Hopefully the next update to ios will fix this.
If you are using another email try deleting the account and then adding it again.

Ok, so I uninstalled and reinstalled my gmail accounts and still a no go. I'm even on wifi and it's not giving me true push notifications. I constantly have to open the app to get it to refresh so it will download any new messages. Any other suggestions?

Yes
Change to fetch and hope the next iOS update fixes it.

Well after you deleted the account did you do a hard reset prior to re adding?
