Well, i don't know, but somehow, when i bought my iphone 3gs in 2009 and synced it with my mac, i was always recieving push mail until yesterday when i reset my settings to default for other reasons. And now ti stopped working. Is that possible that in 2009 iTunes sync set iphone settings mail to exchange? Because before yesterday, in the settings my Gmail was set to fetch manually (not even 15 or 30min) and there was no Push setting in advanced-gmail. Only Fetch and Manual.

If you are unwilling to give up the benefits of IMAP on your device, there is a simple push solution: Download the Gmail app from the app store - you can utilize the benefit of push notifications without using the application.
The only downside is that if you enjoy sliding open your lockscreen notifications - you will end up at the Gmail app. Not a big deal for me, just slide open the main screen, touch Mail, then wait for your mail to Fetch.
An added bonus is that the pre-set sound effect for Gmail notifications is pleasant, my previous push client 'Boxcar' had some obnoxious options. Also, I was having some difficulty receiving push notifications on my iPad mini using Boxcar. The new Gmail application is working great on both my iPhone 4s, iPad mini and iPad 2.

I guess Apple and Google are "not playing nice" anymore. If you still need to use your Gmail and want the push advantages of the iCloud what i've done is forwarded all my gmail to the iCould email accont to get the push notifications. Use the Gmail.app to read the messages. Then I would use the Mail.app to do whatever IMAP needed "house cleaning". Yes, some extra steps but it should do for now until Apple "fixes" or better steps are found. . .Thanks guys for the tips!
