    Default iPhone 2.1 Does Not Play Fetch


    Have you noticed that your email doesn't seem to update when your iPhone is locked and asleep? It is not just you. It seems for a lot of users iPhone firmware 2.1 does not fetch mail while it is sleeping. This bug was probably introduced with the power saving features added in firmware 2.1 that are intended to save power - checking your email all the time takes up quite a bit of iPhone power - but with this bug apparently kill function. Will this be fixed in firmware 2.2? We can only hope.

    Note: While plugged in it should work normally. This problem seems to only occurs under battery power.

    Default i agree
    yup i have that same problem, it does not fetch when it's locked, maybe when ppl use the push function it works but with pop3 server it doesn't.
    when i unlock the iphone, and open mail app then it's going to start checking mail. i agree it really S...

    Does gmail push as well? Do you need to install something or change settings? Because it doesn't push for me, while mobileme works just fine.

    I have noticed this on my gmail account. Good to know I'm not just crazy, or it's not something I broke while 'playing' with it...

    I've been seeing this too. It annoys me because it's actually just easier to set it to fetch and know I'm getting email than to have it on Push and hope it comes in.
    Unlocked & Jailbroken running T-Mobile.

    I was wondering what was going on with my iPhone.

  17. #17
    My Yahoo and Gmail accounts push mail just fine but any of my AOL accounts won't get the mail. Plus I can't use a AOL outgoing server to send email. Anybody else having this issue??

    not only fetch even my push doesn't come through reliably all the time

  19. #19
    This is for the Fetch feature. Some of you are referring to Push. And if you are saying it works on Fetch and you have email waiting in the morning....are you charging your battery overnight? As mentioned in the first post, Fetch works when your phone is charging (ie, plugged in) and locked.

    Anyhoo, yes, Fetch does not work for me when my phone is locked.

    So download backgrounder, open mail app, enable backgrounder and see if that remedies your problem...
    This is getting a lil' ridiculous...
