also too, any AT&T or sbc global email account will work though the yahoo setup and push. I guess yahoo/AT&T/sbc are all in bed together. my firstname.lastname@example.org was setup through the yahoo option and it pushes.
Hopefully Gmail will develop push email for us. I read they are making an Android application which will support push email, notifications, etc. Hopefully they don't make the push function specific to the application on Android.
I really don't know which is better, cause I just switched my mail from fetch to push
-But I noticed before that I was more likely to get my mail when I had it set on a fetch schedule than push, but Im gonna try Push out for today to see if I actually get my mail
Cause usually I'm at home on Wi-fi and wont receive any mail until I'm heading to work or just turn off wi-fi for some reason
- log on to your gmail account
- click on settings at the top
- on your settings tab click on forwarding POP/IMAP
in the FOWARDING SECTION
- click on the bubble "forward a copy of incoming mail to (your 10 digit cell email@example.com
- on the next option if its not listed click on the arrow so that keep gmail's copy in inbox
in the pop download section:
skip number 1(don't choose any bubbles) then go to number 2. keep gmail's copy in inbox should be listed. go to IMAP SECTION
- click on the first bubble. Enable IMAP
- save settings.
that right there will send you a text whenever you have any kind of mail that goes to your gmail account. no need to manually check or fetch/push. whenever you get a message just check your email. By the way....i hope you have unlimited text if you wanna use this option.
Thank you so much. Yes I do have unlimited text messages and phone calls, because I pay monthly bills on how many minutes I talked, text messages I sent, internet I used, etc. and I am not an AT&T user by the way because I don't even live in the USA yet. So I don't know, will it work? My network provider is Egyptian and is called Mobinil. If there's any data I need to get from Mobinil, you can tell me if you know it. Then I can give them a phone call and check it out. Like the firstname.lastname@example.org thing, maybe there's a replacement for Mobinil?
battery is ok. i usually let mine drain out completly at least twice a week. This gmail option is just another quick way of letting the owner know he/she has an email without using the fetch system on the phone. It's usually sent out within 10 seconds of an email. For pictures or videos slightly longer but not by much.
