    I have a question about the Push feature in 3.0

    Lets pretend i have no mail in our inbox when we launch the mail app. Then I close the app, turn OFF wifi.
    Now lets assume I recieve an email, and I turn on wi-fi but I DON'T open the mail app.

    Would the mail app have a "1" badge on the icon??

    In this case, would any app with the Push feature have a # on the badge each time i reconnect onto wi-fi?

    Have you thought of testing this yourself?

    Turn you WiFi off and send yourself an E-mail from a computer. Turn WiFi back on and see what happens!

    What does work. Is leave wi-fi on, but lock the screen, so wi-fi turns itself off after like 30 seconds. But because push is enabled, the ipod will check for push messages every 15 minutes. But you have to be near wi-fi

    Also you could get the app from Cydia for one minutes push

    That probably drains your battery really fast....

    Here we go:
    Push is not "automatic" for mail. Gmail does not have push. Push for mail was available since 2.0, and worked if you had a mail2web or other exchange email provider.

    Now, on 3.0, not much is different. However, I believe that Yahoo offers push. And, if not, you can use an app like gpush or pushmail that work in different ways, but in the end alert you as soon as you get an email.

    for an ipod touch, push is useless unless your on wifi all the time. apple (or mail server) pushes the notification once, and if your not connected to the internet, youll miss it.
    and the ipod doesnt "check" for push mesages, the messages are pushed to the ipod.
    and one minute push isnt push, its fetch every minute, which means no battery
