If you have an iPhone and a GMail account and you are not using the iPhones push feature, you are missing out. Instead of fetching email every single time you open up the Mail app, configure your iPhone to push your new email directly to your handset. It’s a simple process and requires that you have a Google GMail account.
If you don’t have an account you can create one here. Besides email you also have the option to sync/push your contacts as well as calendar. This is especially handy if you are in business. All you do is either set the calendar info on your iPhone or through the Google Calendar website and it will push the data each way. I use it for all of my appointments.
Here’s the link to show you how to setup and configure your iPhone with GMail’s push email.
