I have an iPhone 4 and an iPad (3G+WiFi, 1st Gen).  I have 2 Gmail accounts set up as Exchange and 1 iCloud .me account set up identically on both the iPhone and the iPad.  Email notifications for all 3 email accounts work correctly on my iPad, but none work on my iPhone.  The is has PUSH enabled, and so do each of the mail accounts under ADVANCED.  It appears to fetch instead, as I can get a notification of new email only at the interval that I have set up for fetch (15 minutes, 1 hour, etc.) and if I set that to manual it never notifies me until I go into the app itself and check my mail.


I've tried:


- disabling/re-enabling PUSH (both globally and within the individual accounts).

- added/removed a new folder to sync to see if that would refresh the session or something.

- closed all apps, powercycled the iPhone.

- disabled/re-enabling the accounts.

- deleted/recreated the email accounts.


Any other ideas?  It worked prior to iOS5, and like I said earlier the identical settings/accounts work on my iPad.  My wife has similar accounts (albeit her own), and they all work fine on her iPhone with the same settings.

iPhone 4, iOS 5
