    Wow just confirmed it takes over 5 minutes for gmail. I didn't care about the other emails being poll only, but I rely on gmail to be instant. This is a deal breaker for me I guess S2 here I come

    Yeah I have come to rely on the instant email, so instant I get it on my berry before my outlook. I dont think I could live with that delay.

    Well, it has been advertised that only Google Mail and Exchange would be push mail, and all others set to pull. But the fact that it takes over 5 minutes for a Gmail account to receive email is pretty interesting. BUT in the grand scheme of things is 5 minutes THAT critical?

    Here's a screen grab of the email when it arrived. Notice the time it was received was 3:31, while the current time on the phone was 3:38. Considering the video was less than 7 minutes long...hmmmm...

    It looks as if his GMail settings on the Droid are off. And in the immortal words of Forrest, "That's all I've got to say about that".

    My point exactly. I don't think Sal had it setup correctly. :no:

    Well I called Verizon to order the S2 but couldn't bring myself to do it it is just the same old BlackBerry with a new name. I need something new and challenging to play with so I stuck with the Droid.

The email client on the Droid is on par with the iPhone frustrating. I spent most of my time refreshing email in order to get it. For me that is a deal breaker because I need instant email for others this may not be the case. But I timed how long it took for Gmail to arrive. Storm 2: 10 seconds. Droid: 5 minutes 25 seconds
    drag and drop is the easiest way IMO...i have always put media on my storm with this method.

    i'm getting my gmails in 10 seconds....something must not have been set properly...however i didn't do anything special in the way of settings on mine...and i'm running off 3g,not wifi

    Good to know like I stated when I posted the video he has been known to have setting set incorrectly before. Glad to hear that sounds to be the case
