    Follow these steps and you could save yourself the hourly push for emails. (This works for GMail). It sends you a text alert everytime you get an email. Most of the time in a matter of second. I used this method on my iphone to save battery life from email pushing.

    - log on to you gmail account
    - click on settings on the right top corner
    - click on fowarding and pop/imap tab
    - in the fowarding section click the "foward a copy of incoming mail to (at this point enter your 10 digit phone number@text.att.net)
    - click save changes

    you will now recieve a text message whenever you get an email. So all you battery hoggs can keep your push off if you want.

    POP and IMAP use very little power. They're more reliable than SMS too. SMS sometimes get dropped and disappear.

    Or you can just turn off auto sync of emails directly through the phone, or change the sync frequency.
