    Is anyone else seeing slower push from Gmail? Its taking 20-30 minutes for me to get my email on my droid over the last 2 days. I haven't downloaded any new software but have gone to getting email within minutes to getting email within 30 minutes if I am lucky. Any ideas?

    Yes, I've been seeing some slow/odd behavior from Gmail/google in the last few days.

    I have a Droid (unrooted) and a Nexus One, both linked to the same gmail account. When I got the Nexus, a couple weeks ago, email would arrive on both devices nearly simultaneously and then on my desktop a minute or two later.

    Delete an email from one device and it's gone from the other within in a minute.

    Starting sometime last week, there's been about a 5 minute delay between email landing on both devices and often emails will arrive on my desktop well before they ever hit my phones - 10 or more minutes.

    Probably unrelated, but gmail and igoogle are nearly inaccessible from my work computer (with firefox 3.6) since about the same time. Gmail just won't load period, I have to use Thunderbird (3.0.3). igoogle is usually ok, but I have to refresh the page about 5 times before it actually shows up.
    No major changes to our work network. Been using Firefox for...a long time.

    I'm still getting email and there's not a massive delay, so it's ok for now. Just a little annoying. Did read this morning that other corporate/government users with Firefox 3.6 are having gmail issues.

    Hit or miss here. Some days its quicker versus my desktop and some days it's 2-5 minutes delayed. I assume its coverage issues but I am on Wifi most of the time so I am not sure.

    I've been having the same issues. I normally would get my gmail notification on my Droid before the gmail notifier extension in Firefox. For a week or so now, I haven't been getting anything on my Droid unless it's sent from my Droid and I copy myself.

    Also, my calendar sync has been off. I have sync running in the background yet I still have to manually turn off sync and re-turn it on for events to appear after putting an event in my calendar from my desktop.

    Weird. Anyone else having one or both of these problems?

    I am also getting the same issue, I find that I have to keep opening the email box to receive them, I have checked the settings and it says that it is set to Push.
    Has anyone found a solution yet?
