What to do if GMail stops pushing mails to your iOS device?

Every couple of months I encounter the same problem: GMail stops pushing mails to my iPhone. I just ran into that problem again last night.

Rebooting the iPhone, re-setting according options to „push“ and even deleting/re-adding the account(s) in question didn’t work.

What did work is:
Going to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> [Account Name] -> Mail Folders to push — and then selecting „[Gmail] All Mail“.

If you’re lucky this might work for you as well… 

Keep in mind: when normal pushing starts working again, you will hear to „bings“ for each mail that arrives, one for „Inbox“ and one for „All Mail“. You can take that as your signal to unselect the „All Mail“ folder again, and then decide wether you’d like to revert the above changes.

iOS4 on iPhone 3GS problems with GoogleMail via Exchange?!

So, I’m one of those people whose greatest virtue isn’t patience. 🙂

Minutes after its release I HAD to install iOS4 onto my iPhone 3GS. Since there’s no upgrade procedure implemented (yet?), upgrading took just short of a lifetime: the iPhone was completely wiped, then iTunes installed iOS4, then the backup was restored to the iPhone. All in all, an probably thanks to the enormously big Navigon app, this took almost 90 minutes. Everything looked fine… but after a couple of hours of normal usage I ran into a „little“ problem…
