    Sounds like Google is having trouble with it. A lot of people are having to manually check their mail or getting their emails long after they should be.

    Yeah the traffic must be overwhelming for them...an email service that allows PUSH for free, definitely gonna be busy.

    On a side note, I get my emails from Myspace/Facebook a few seconds behind the text alerts.

    IMO...I use gmail so it only made sense to turn on free Push. I also use the Google Calendar...which I also sync with Outlook.

    What sucks is if you have an exchange account already set up, you can't add another one. The iPhone only allows for one exchange account at a time.

    The thing I hate is that when I add a new account for exchange it puts it at the bottom of the list.... no way do drop and drag email accts to rearrange them.

    Then I decide, "Ok i'll just wipe all my accounts out and put them back in order". Well I do that, and if I add my exchange first (want it at the top) and add more accounts, they all add ABOVE the exchange account, where as if I add just standard accounts from a bare screen, they all go in order 1,2,3,4 instead of 2,3,4,1 with the exchange.

    SO STUPID APPLE, let me drag and drop FFS!

    Why does the order matter?

    Cause it's nice to have your main email account at the top of the list when you go into Mail. I wish I could put my personal account above my work account. It's also the order that the phone checks your email in so you might have to wait for your work emails to be downloaded before it'll grab your personal emails.
