    OK. I have a pretty interesting and frustrating case...

    I have one gmail account, using the default gmail app. I also have a separate gmail account, using Exchange ActiveSync. Push does not work for either of my two gmail accounts.

    1. default gmail

    It just doesn't push. Today, i went thru the entire day without noticing the email. at 9PM today, I realized that i had missed an email sent at 8am. The only reason I knew this was because I checked my gmail on my computer. So I tried hitting refresh on my incredible's gmail. After a few seconds, the email showed up, 13 hours after it was originally sent. I kept on sending test emails to my gmail, and it just does not show up on my incredible until i hit refresh. this is supposed to be push email...what's going on..?


    2. default "Mail" app - exchange activesync

    At 9pm, i realized that I had missed 4 emails from throughout the day (a different gmail account). I went into the settings to make sure that the frequency was set to "as items arrive" and realized that it was set to Manual. I thought, aha, i should change this, and i should be fine. However, i realized that I kept on failing to change the setting.

    I choose "as items arrive" , and then back out to the main settings menu. (there is no such choice as "save"...it's supposed to automatically save the settings and apply as i exit the menu.) But then I realize that when i go back to the settings, it's set back to Manual frequency, meaning that i will never get notified unless i hit refresh every time I want to check my email. Incredible does not even let me change the frequency setting to 5 minutes, 1 hour, or even 1 day check frequency. when i change the setting, it looks as if my changes are being saved, but when i go back, it is always set back to Manual. It allows me to change and save everything else on that settings screen (for example, i can change the "download past mail" settings from 3 days to 5 days, and it will save the changes i've made), but I just cannot seem to succesfully change the setting so that it will push, or even regularly auto-check.

    Is there anybody out there who is seeing a problem like this? Please share any insights



    ----
    some other facts that may or may not be relevant:
    - I was using droid eris before changing to this phone. on that phone, I was using the same 2 email addresses...1 using Gmail app, and other using Mail app.

    - Ever since i got the incredible, about twice a day, i receive a strange text message from number 6200, that says: //BREW:0x01017:TYPE=SAS;UI=0lCONT=0,1,0;

    - The activation of my phone was somewhat complicated. I was using droid eris. Then I decided to buy the incredible with my sister's phone number (who was using motorola Q...no data plan), so that I can give her the droid eris, and I use the new incredible. So when I got the phone online, I had to initially active it using my sister's number, then active it again using my number, putting her number back into her motorola Q.

    Go to "Settings" (from your main screen) and then "Accounts & Sync". Is everything set the way you really want it?

    Is the as items arrive option only available to exchange?

    Sort of. Exchange uses push. Gmail uses imap idle. Both are instantaneous type technologies. Tons of sync settings on this phone. Anyone can put a wrench in what you are trying to do.
