    Anyone know how to get the email sync to only sync on a timed schedule vs automatically all the time? With my old Galaxy S I could set the sync time to every 10 minutes, 15 minutes, hour, etc... and that cut down the battery consumption considerably.

    It seems on this new S3(and I'm not sure if it's the S3 or if its something in the new ICS), the only sync options are always on or always off. Has anyone found an option to push/pull email on a schedule?

    I've already cut down on most stuff(turned off SVoice, bluetooth, GPS, feeds, turned on powersave, wifi, cut down the screen timeouts, turned off haptic etc...)

    It should be fairly simple

    Load email app.
    Goto options
    Goto settings (not sync settings)
    Select the specific account
    Settings Page appears
    Sync options for that specific account are there.

    Are you using a GMail app or the built-in Exchange? I thought with the Exchange there was an option (I don't use Exchange), whereas with GMail it is virtually instant...

    Maybe another software like TouchDown, can help.

    Both apps are set to "push" by default, until you change them.
