hey...im thinking about buying an iPhone 3G with AT&T. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how the email client is. Also, if i do NOT purchase Mobile Me, how often will i receieve my messages...will it automatically fetch my email after a certain amount of time, or do i need to manually do that? i will be using GMail and AOL if that matters

Thanks for the advice!

I'm using Gmail as well and have my settings set to, "push" - off and "fetch" - manually.

I receive my mail almost immediately after it's sent (i just tested it). You can set it to fetch data every 15 min, 30 min, every hour, and manually. I have it set to hourly and works fine for me. Hope this helps :)

use gmail. go to gmail settings and you cant set it up to send you a sms message whenever you receive an email. that way you can save battery life.
