    If you're on BIS you may want to log on to your BIS account online and delete and re-add your email accounts and see if that helps.
    Sometimes resending service books can help too.
    Be sure to reboot BB afterward.

    Strange. I wonder though if also the difference is our providers. Like I said I get it damn near instantly.

    Well last week everything coming in speedy. I sent a email from my hotmail email to each one. The bb email got it instantly. The y! Mail and gmail is slow.

    Re: yahoo mail and gmail delays

    It depends on how your BIS is checking Y! and Gmail.

    The way these systems work on a BB, the BIS checks the mailboxes periodically and then forwards the messages to the phone. AFAIK, it actually just does POP3 on both services, although theoretically you can do IMAP on Gmail now and maybe even on Y! (It might be a paid-only feature though.) In my experience with VZW, the BIS only checks the POP mail accounts every 10-15 minutes, so there can be a bit of a delay from when the account receives it versus when your phone gets the message from the BIS.

    With Gmail at least you can use their phone-based app to check/read it instead.

    Re: yahoo mail and gmail delays

    I spoke with Cingular...eer...AT&T today and the tech representative told me that the e-mails only come through on a 'cycle'. He gave me a duration of 20 minutes. So basically, he said that every 20 minutes, Blackberry (pardon my lack of technical jargon...) will check for emails on your other accounts. So, if an e-mail is sent to you right after that 20 minute cycle has just passed, you'll have to wait 20 minutes before that e-mail comes in.

    But..

    If you receive an email very closely or right at the end of that 20 minute cycle, the e-mail will appear to come fairly quickly...within a matter of a few minutes or seconds.

    I've been waiting over an hour for an e-mail I've sent to myself...so I guess that refutes his claim.

    I have both Yahoo and Gmail ... I have my Gmail setup with IMAP and it comes through instantly. My Yahoo seems to come in every 10-15 minutes.
