I have an iPhone 4 and an iPad (3G+WiFi, 1st Gen). I have 2 Gmail accounts set up as Exchange and 1 iCloud .me account set up identically on both the iPhone and the iPad. Email notifications for all 3 email accounts work correctly on my iPad, but none work on my iPhone. The Mail.app is has PUSH enabled, and so do each of the mail accounts under ADVANCED. It appears to fetch instead, as I can get a notification of new email only at the interval that I have set up for fetch (15 minutes, 1 hour, etc.) and if I set that to manual it never notifies me until I go into the app itself and check my mail.
- disabling/re-enabling PUSH (both globally and within the individual accounts).
- added/removed a new folder to sync to see if that would refresh the session or something.
- closed all apps, powercycled the iPhone.
- disabled/re-enabling the accounts.
- deleted/recreated the email accounts.
Any other ideas? It worked prior to iOS5, and like I said earlier the identical settings/accounts work on my iPad. My wife has similar accounts (albeit her own), and they all work fine on her iPhone with the same settings.
I have noticed unstable behavior with iOS5 and Gmail Push (Exchange and Google Sync), meaning sometimes it would deliver email instantly and majority of times there would be a delay between 10 and 25 mins. It seems like that email is not coming at all, however it will come much later!
SOLUTION (which at least had worked for me and nobody has posted on the Internet yet):
See if it worked you. Unfortunately I can't explain why Gmail Push works for your wife's accounts and on your iPad with the same settings.
I deleted my Gmail/Exchange account on my phone and set it up again (exchange server) and now both my push mail and my calendar are working. Hoping it does for you, too.
I've been having problems with iCloud not pushing email to my iPhone. I have tried deleting account and setting it up two times and the problem persists. It seems to be sporadic, or maybe only when the iPhone is in sleep mode. If I open Mail app then the mail comes through. I have verified that Push is enabled in Settings, also.
My phone and my wife's phone are behaving the same way. Only when reopen the in box does new mail come through.
I've the same issue too and still don't found any solution how to fix it!
