Pre email

I am thinking about getting a pre but I was wondering how email worked. Right now I have a touch pro and do not pay the extra cash for push. I have a $15 data plan and use third party software for push email. Before I found the software I just used the standard WM pull every hour.

My question is, to get push do you have to have a plan with activesync (I know people say you have to have an SE plan but that was the case with the TP as well, and if you get one from outside you do not have to.) If you just have a regular data plan is there a built in pull system? Is there any third party software to push it for you?

Thanks.

Did this ever happen. If so, I would not need third party software or servers.

Re: Pre email

I have a data share plan that my wife and I use and I have my Pre setup with push email for both gmail and my exchange account without any additional charges for the push capabilities.

Re: Pre email

Well that is nice to know. I think I am on a vision plan so it might work differently. Did you have a WM device before with the same capabilities?

Re: Pre email

You are going to have to switch to an Everything Data plan to get the Pre, so don't worry about the data package you have now. And if you have a Gmail email account, the Pre supports IMAP IDLE so your emails will be sent to you in near real-time.

Yes I did. You do not need a SE plan, just an unlimited data package.

Not true. You have to have one of the Everything plans. It can be Simply Everything or Everything Data, but a normal data add-on will not work on the Pre like it does with WM phones.

Re: Pre email

are you certain about that? I ask because everything I have read has indicated that if I get it from someone (not sprint) that my plan does not have to change. When the TOuch Pro first came out it was an everything only phone but I bought it form a person (not sprint) and had no problems activating it.

Re: Pre email

So I just looked it up on Sprint Users and it appears to not be possible. THanks for the help but no pre for me.

Re: Pre email

Even my pop3 email "pushes". I set it to retrieve emails as they arrive, and if I send an email from my home computer account, my pre notification goes off in seconds.
