    iPhone Firmware 2.0 to have Push Email

    Advertisement



    While BlackBerry users are busting out emails in real-time with the BlackBerry push email service, iPhone users are left to deal with a few third-party applications to enable push-email over their Outlook Exchange servers. Oh, and there's also Yahoo's iPhone push email support, but that service has been notoriously unreliable in dealing with real-time email delivery.

    That's why the iphone has nothing on the bb. T-mobile usa was the first carrier that the iphone was offered to but was turned down because it didn't meet the company's standards~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    ^^ LOL, and they didnt like the revenue sharing portion...or the fact that Apple wanted to wear the pants in the relationship. I don't blame them...but I bet they are kicking themselves for not doing it. Heck they could launch their 3G network along with the 3G iPhone!! lol
    it's always greener with the other carrier...

    I heard it was also offered to Verizon before hitting AT&T. I can already attest that its the worst thing that's ever happened to AT&T. So many iPhones have been sold to consumers that haven't been activated under AT&T service! Its costed the company a lot of money.

    ^ Well it's not like they're losing money, they're just not getting the "extra" anticipated revenue from the iTunes activate iPhones.

    Personally I've unlocked countless iPhones for friends and customers, I actually just did one (mine) an hour ago. I'm giving up my iPhone.. again. I might regret this though, like I did last time. The iPhone seems like it's going places, but I can only afford to keep ONE smart phone right now.. and I choose my 8310. At least for now.

    That's funny, I thought Verizon was approached first.
