Hey guys, I just switched over from a blackberry to a Droid Thunderbolt. I've set up all my yahoo email accounts and my new Gmail account. I synced them all and I get my notifications with no problem. I wanted to know if there was a way for me to get instant notification like I used to get on my blackberry instead of my droid syncing every 5 min to check for new email?? This is really killin my battery life plus I need faster notification that 5 min. It's very imperative for me to receive fast email for my job. Thanks
There is a method where you would allow Gmail to check your Yahoo acc. and instantly push to you phone. I have not done this myself but remember reading it somewhere on this forum. I would assume you setup yahoo to allow pop from gmail........or you set up forwarding to gmail from yahoo. One of those methods should work. Good luck.
