    I haven't been getting my aol account email in a timely manor. I have the settings set to check every 10 min for email but still not getting it. If I manually go into the email it searches for it and then retreives it but it won't do it automatically.....does anyone have any ideas? :thinking:

    Maybe you are not getting a good 3G signal? I've noticed that occasionally if I am inside a big building that has a steel substructure or brick even, that the 3G signal becomes spotty. You could test it by sending yourself e-mails from a computer when you see that you have a solid connection and see how long it takes for them to arrive.

    EDIT: Allow me to clarify, if the 3G signal temporarily goes to shit it may prevent an app that is set to update automatically from doing so. Then it doesn't do the automatic update, automatically, once you return to a good signal.

    Very well could be. As I remember it also took about 12 hours after activation before the aol accounts started pushing on its own

    - don't use a task killer. don't kill tasks
    - the stock Email app on Android is buggy. Use K9 or any alternative.
    - make sure "background data" setting is checked
