    Im having the exact same problem. Im running gmail push via active sync/exchange. Mail and calender sync. And battery performance is very poor. Iphone gets very hot on the backside, around the apple and the battery is draining. Keep us updated about better battery life with imap.

    I was wondering, how did you get 3G internet to work on the iOS 4.0. I can only get WiFi to work, not Edge or 3G

      Hey Lucas.

      I actually didn’t get it to work. It just worked right out of the box. I’m situated in Germany, use a T-Mobile (official provider for Germany) SIM card and have a unlocked iPhone 3GS from Italy (where they’re sold unlocked, so no Jailbreak or „custom unlock“).

    I had the same issue but solved the problem…….here’s what I did:

    – Deleted all mail accounts from the iPhone
    – Performed a full reset
    – Synced the iPhone to iTunes
    – Reinstalled the email accounts
    – For all email accounts that had folders – did a download on a wifi network, including the „sent“ and „trash“ folders
    – Synced again with iTunes

    Battery drain is gone and phone is operating normal

    I think it had something to do with trying to update your mail files and folders and getting hung up – thus constantly drawing power to continually reach the servers…….could be wrong but this worked for me

      I restored the iPhone in iTunes and then configured it as a new iPhone, read: without restoring the backup.

          Yep. But don’t use the backup file when restoring. And keep in mind: though it seems to have helped Miggs (see comment from a few days ago), it didn’t really work for me.

      I have the same problem and another: If I send an E-Mail out of an other App, the mail will not be sent, it stays in the outbox Folder until I kick them

  9. iSchack

    Just checked that: yep, same behaviour here. See „Update 5“ in the original blog post (will be visible in a couple of minutes).

    Thanks!

    I’m having the exact same problem too. Some messages (via Exchange/ActiveSync Google) arrive but then are “not downloaded” from the server… so I can only see the “header”.

    Then attempts to send/receive more often than not produces TimeOuts. I haven’t done anything yet to try to fix it, but I guess I’ll try deleteing the account and starting from scratch with it.

    I do have the feeling that iOS drains more battery and more quickly, but not as bad as you describe.

    I did install from scratch though and didn’t restore. I’m also using nuevasync.com and it seems to work fine. Just my Nokia has issues lately, but that’s a different story 😉

    • iSchack

      On my OLD 🙂 3GS I, too, had the impression that the problem occured only with Google’s Exchange server… strange…

    At the Apple support forum there was a hint that works: Turn off Thread-View.

    But I love this feature. I think this is an Apple Bug

  16. iSchack

    Hey.

    Thanks for your comment.
    I refuse to believe that this an Apple problem, since it works fine with other Exchange servers. Even with nuevasync.com, which is a third-party-exchange server for Googlemail.

    Bought 2, iPhone 3GS about 9 months ago. About 3 months ago, one started dropping calls. I spoke to ATT & Apple. ATT did some things to „reset the phone to the tower“, so they say. Apple did nothing. The problem began getting worse. If I’m talking on the phone and get a text, the call will drop. Always shows 3 to 4 bars in signal. Called ATT 9 times since the problem started, called Apple 3 times, and ATT also did a 3 way conference call with Apple & me, twice.

    Apple swears it is a software problem with ATT sim card, so ATT replaced the sim card. Did not help. ATT swears it is a hardware problem. Long story short, I have been paying over 100.00 for the past 3 months, but can’t make calls longer than 20 seconds. Home button also started acting up. Sometimes you have to push it very hard several times to get any reaction. And you have to push it on the right hand side of the button or it will not work.

    Apple finally gave in, because the hardware warranty is still good, and said to take it to the local Apple store for replacement, because of the home button, not because it was dropping calls. Well, Apple store in Lafayette Louisiana does not handle iPhones….hmmm there’s a kick in the teeth. Apple tells me to go to THAT store, but that store is useless when it comes to phones.

    So, I bring the phone back home, and called ATT again. This time to cancel the account. I have been a ping pong ball between Apple & ATT long enough.

    Again, they do conference call with Apple, but now Apple wants 35.00 from me to send them the phone… why?? The phone only weighs a few ounces, I can FedEx overnight for about 15.00. I refused to pay anything. It’s under warranty, and they have been shinning me on for 3 months. I told ATT that I wanted to end the conference call with Apple and proceed with canceling the contract. ATT said I had to pay a penalty for canceling early. I told them to take me to court, I refuse to pay that also, simply because I have paid over 300.00 in the last 3 months for service that I didn’t get. The phone is a great iPod, but a terrible phone during the last 3 months.

    So, then ATT steps up, and offers me a free phone upgrade, 3 months early.  I was surprised, but interested. I refused their offer for another iPhone, simply because of Apple. I would never ever buy another iPhone. Not that they are all bad phones, but because support is non-exsistant, even with warrenty and Apple care. Apple has offered absolutely no support in the past 3 months. They have done nothing all the way through this nightmare, but blame ATT’s network, which is bull. I can use the other iPhone, make a call and talk for hours, hang up, call the same person with the bad phone, and the call drops within 20 seconds. I know it’s not the network. I did take ATT’s offer for the HTC 4 Inspire. My total out of pocket cost for this phone was 4.06.

    ATT waved all the fees and didn’t ask me for anything except 4.06 which was some kind of tax that they couldn’t get around.

    So, be careful spending money on Apple care…. because Apple, really doesn’t care!
