    Hello,

    I'm experiencing some strange phenomenon on my HTC Magic.
    I have disabled my 3G, so I only use 2G networks.

    But on random times, not very often, I suddenly get a message, saying I have new unread Gmail email. When I look at my Gmail inbox, my inbox is totally up to date! I think this is very strange, because I had 3G and WIFI disabled when I retreived these mails.

    Can Gmail email be retreived via the 2G network? As far as I know, email can not be retrieved via GPRS or other 2G network.

    I receive Gmail via 2G GPRS. It works great. I am new to this as well and I am not one of these experts on this site. But I turned off the data sync when I am on the 2G so it will not cost me money by always updating. I use a prepaid card to buy phone time.

    Yes it can , All thats needed to retrieve the emails is Data , what 2G supports :)
