how does push email work on the iphone... if you set up a gmail account in the mail application does this automatically receive emails???


or do you manually need to click "receive"

Google gmail doesn't support push mail. Instead, set your iPhone to check for new mail every 15 minutes :)

will that contribute to data usage though? if its checking every 15 minutes

It would use a small amount of data to check for new mail.

I have mine set for 30 minutes and use very little data overall - I have a 1 Gig plan, though admittedly my gmail account is for private use
