Gmail will not work with push either unless you go through a intermediate app like mobile me or an exchange server. If you are doing that you could use any email including hotmail. Either way it will not be as good as true push mail service.

Not these exact apps, but Blackberry may have something similar.

PS - the iPhone is the first Apple product I ever owned

Gmail settings are just pre-set, and all you need to do is input you user name and password. With hotmail you would have to fill in few more lines like the pop3 or imap address.


Other then that there is no diff. Both use fetch (not push) to get email from the server in an increment defined in your settings. Default is every 15 or 30 mins. I forget which. Unless you are running a time sensitive business it should be good enough. It also updates when ever you open up an inbox.

If you don't have your iphone synced with a calendar you could even turn the push off since you aren't using it for email. It would make your battery last a little longer. Even if you have a calendar sync most likely you don't "need" to have push on.

Not looking to point you out, but wanted to get the correct info out there

And for the poster that was having issues setting up hotmail PM me, and I'll see if I can help.

new app

I just downloaded plan.pack.go and it looks pretty nice. You can create templates and populate them with items. Then create specific lists from templates. Just played with it for 5 minutes but it seems perfect for frequent vacationers. Got a lot of 5* ratings as well.

True. But I find Gmail works just fine on fetch. There doesn't appear to be a very long lag between a message sent to a push account (ie me.com) or my gmail account. I've experimented with cc'ing both accounts on the same email to test this.

Ug, I feel so stupid. I had my hotmail account set up as a link on the homescreen but you have to log in each time. I wanted to be able to get mail from the mail icon on the bottom of the screen and have it updated when mail is received. It was when I was googling a fix via hotmail that I found izymail. I didn't know there was a way to fetch hotmail without it being set up as a link. So izymail is not needed for hotmail/msn?

That is one I am going to have to try out... I always have lists all over the place, depending on where we are going.. Would be nice to have one for the beach, one for WDW, one for cruises, etc...

Thanks for sharing

Izymail is not needed. Just go to email setup and choose "other". Then just put in your info. I checked it out last night as I have not done it is a while. All you will need is your username(inculding the @****.com) and password. It will default to POP3. If you want to change it to imap edit the new account and change the word "pop3" to "imap" in the hostname field.

I have an iPhone question!

I just ordered mine yesterday...and just reading through this thread I'm already overwhelmed by all the things you can do with it! Anyway, I was wondering if someone could recommend a good case for it? I'm kinda picky about my phone cases...I'd like something that's not bulky, but does a good job of protecting the screen while not at all interfering with the touch screen features, if that makes any sense. (I currently have a Treo, and I ended up dumping the case I bought for it because it was a pain to use the touch screen features with the plastic covering the screen.) I'm not sure if I want something that's see through or that flips back...if that makes any sense. Anyway - if anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it a lot!

Okay, back to lurking...

I bought the protective film at the Apple Store for my iPhone. It protects the screen and then I have a cover I bought at the Apple store but it doesn't cover the screen.

Right next to Macy's on the second floor.

Why dues someone that doesnt want an iPhone need to know where the Apps store is located, hmmmm?

Inquiring minds want to know.

If you pull up iTunes...there is a whole section devoted to just apps......but someone resisting the iPhone would never need to know that.

Nikki....are you going to get the black one or the white one?
