This could be much more than just a "phone issue".
I am gonna "hypothesize" a bit ----
When your phone is sleeping, the network knows it and does not (cannot?) send data to it. I notice that when I wake my phone, I then get my downloads including emails, messages, etc. I do not think the network does all of this instantly, but on a periodic basis (as in batch processing).
I notice that I see emails on my main computer (they are on the mail server) but they do not appear on my phone for up to 10 minutes after wakeup! It would appear that the system can introduce some significant delays just in the way it handles and distributes data. The point being it is probably not the fault of the phone, even with the phone connected (awake) to the system and ready to receive data.
Would be an interesting topic to discuss with Sprint for verification.
