    How do you make it so the phone doesn't automatically check for emails? I get so few that it would be better for me to be able to simply do a "manual" check when I want, rather than have the phone check all the time. Besides, I don't NEED to be notified every time I get an email since most are crap anyway.

    You are the best! Thanks!
    Ok, that worked for my Yahoo mail so how do I do the same with my Gmail?

    not sure on gmail, don't use it.

    edit: actually go to menu>settings>data sync>google>and turn off gmail sync

    Thank-you sir. I was looking at that but was afraid I'd screw something up like lose all my contacts again.:rolleyes:
    I like that I can get my email on my phone but I simply don't get enough important emails that I NEED my phone downloading them 24/7.
    Thanks again.

    So now I get to ask the really elementary question. I set my email to manual, but now I don't see any check mail command. It has to be right in front of me. Would someone be so kind as to point to it, please?
