Here's a head scratcher. I have push email notifications off, yet I'm still getting push email. Fetch setting are on "manual." My phone is just sitting next to me and then "ping' - I have email. This happening to anyone else? Yahoo is my main account, but that shouldn't matter.

I thought it was a bug with the new multitasking feature at first, meaning if you change your email settings throughout the day, you have to close the settings icon in the multitasking queue or it will remember the old settings. But this morning when I turned my phone on (I shut mine off every night) I never touched the settings (no push - manual fetch) and I only manually fetched my email once. Then, without even touching my phone, several minutes later I got a push email. I checked the settings and everything is still off. Please post if you're experiencing this. I only got to mess with iOS4 on my 3Gs for 3 days before I traded it in, but I don't remember this being an issue. Why just with iPhone 4?

iPhone 4, Windows XP

    Hi. I had this exact same problem. Mine started the day they came up with the ios4 software update on my 3G. The problem continued when I got my iPhone 4 on Wednesday. It was driving me crazy because I did everything you described below.

    Solution that worked for me: Set up your iPhone as a new phone. Once I did that the behavior stopped.

    Thank you for your reply. I was afraid it would come to that. I assume when you set up your iPhone 4 as a new phone, you can't restore all your settings, bookmarks and contacts from a previous back up, correct? Restoring from a previous back up would defeat the purpose, right?

    I was told to delete all my email accounts and set them up again, and that helped. You could try that before doing a restore if you haven't restored already.

    I gave that a try, compwiz1202, but I'm still getting email pushed to my phone. Is it possible this will get fixed in a sw update soon? I don't wanna restore as a new phone. I lost all my app data once before - I don't wanna start from scratch again.

    FYI--I tried deleting my mail accounts and re-adding them. Mail continued to show up on my phone with push and fetch both set to manual. I would even get mail when mail was closed from the multitasking tray.

    Once I set it up as a new phone the problem stopped. But yes I did lose all my data. I look at it as a fresh start in a new phone.

    I have the same issue on both mine and my wife's 3GS running ios4. Fetch new data is off. Fetch new data is also turned to Manual in Fetch New Data-Advance settings.
    I still get all emails pushed through from both my yahoo and work emails. I will try deleting the account and start again. WIll post my results.

    Unfortunately deleting the account and recreating it doesn't work. I have checked the settings a thousand times. I would love a solution that doesn't involve restoring my phone.

    Same thing here. Hoping for a fix in 4.0.1. It's very annoying and I think it's draining my battery faster than before, which makes sense if it's using "push".

    I too am having the same issue and I wish there was a better answer then to restore the phone. I really don't want to lose my apps, music and books. Hopefully there will be an update that addresses this issue.

    This was happening to me and my husband on our 3G models as well... way before iOS 4. It would only happen every once in a while after we had completed a phone call, checking voicemail, and sometimes after receiving a text message. After hanging up from the call or whatnot, there they were, new emails pushed to the phone and our push was off, and fetch was set to manual. Never was too big of an issue, so we just lived with it. I've since "upgraded" to the 4 and restored it from a backup of my 3G. Same thing happened last night after checking a voicemail... new emails were pushed from my google account. Anyone know of a fix other than restoring the phone? I would like to keep my data and settings.

    Make sure Mail isn't open in the background. If it is it will be fetching mail fairly frequently. At least it is on my phone. (double click the home button, if the Mail appis open then hold down the icon until it starts to shake and press the close icon)

    This is annoying me, so could you test to see if it is happening on your phones too please?!

    For me the problem is that Mail doesn't push if the Mail app is open as it is fetching. Hopefully this is a bug and will be fixed soon!
