    What is strange, when I send an email to my messaging.sprintpc.com address it comes up in the gmail account. thought they have nothing to do with each other.

    my bad meant to explain to you young folks how to pull from your accounts. many users dont actually need push email. if u have a smartphone and personal email accounts having them pulled every 10 minutes should be good enough, especially since you will get the entire email with attachments. PE is fine for some people. for me it was silly to have messages sent when pulling the email is free and still notifies me. sorry for the confusion folks!!!

    dunno, but hey if it works for you... great.

    thanks for calling me young... the "issue" with polling for mail is that it uses more battery for useless polls (read if there is no mail it polls anyway)..

    Just tried it, didn't work, all it did was send an SMS to my phone.

    Could you give all the steps you did in order, both on the computer and on your phone?

    Thanks, if we could get push gmail somehow that would be great.

    I was thinking the same thing... It should show up as an SMS, not in the GMAIL POutlook...

    not sure what I did but it goes to my gmail account. It isn't a text. Im looking into my sprint account, might have had it forwarded to gmail also. In any case, gmail is still pushing and my battery isn't draining. my regular text messages come through normal though.

    Well, keep us updated. :)

    Google must be working on push, MS, Yahoo, and Mobile Me have it in some form, it would be crazy for Google to NOT be trying to implement it.

    Forgot to mention, I have several Google alerts set up to send to my gmail, not as a text,"as they happen." Might have something to do with it, but not every email is an alert.

    I thought that having push email is more of a drain because it has to keep a constant connection so it knowns when to push?

    Nope, not the case. server sends a message that triggers your phone to get the mail.

    so somehow gmail forwards to an email address (somehow discovers its sendingg to a windows mobile phone), figures out how to delete the text message, AND triggers the email to send/receive? all within 4 seconds?

    now this- id like to see. not doubting, actually I'm actually impressed if we could get this to work.

    I set up the gmail on my phone like normal, have it set to manual.

    I set gmail up on the web. in settings/forwarding I put in my xxxxxxxxxx@messaging.sprintpcs.com addy and selected "Keep a gmail copy in inbox" in the drop down next to that. That's all I did. it makes sence, if the text message triggers my phone to pull the mail from gmail, it would pull the real email also. Strange thing is,I never get the text massage. Again, it might be a sprint thing.
