Push works, but not consistently
Hello. I have the same problem on my Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. The POP accounts work well as they are on a fetch-schedule, but the iMap account does not sync consistently. I'm on 3G, and I have Background Data & Auto-Sync checked on. Upon doing a manual sync, the push service continues to work for a while, then eventually stops. Another manual sync, or toggling the Background Data off and on will get it started again, only to stop after a while.
Although my iMap account is with GMail, I don't prefer to use the GMail app for a few reasons:
1. accounts set-up on Android phones are locked-in and difficult to remove
2. the phone will always try to sync with the contacts and calendars as well
3. even if the sync options are turned off, the account still shows up in the phone's contact and calendar as sync options
4. mail notifications don't appear in the Universal Inbox widget
And the Universal Inbox is also the reason why third party clients like K9 and MailDroid are not preferable.
Has anyone found a solution to this problem yet?
