    Default Almost Push Email on the iPhone!

    I read this article a week or so ago, and have been using it since, with no problems, other than slightly shorter battery life......
    I am not taking any credit for this, i am simply relaying some good info.....

    Well, kind of. How íbout your email application checking every 5 minutes instead of the minimum 15 minutes? Want it faster? How about 2 minutes? Thatís what weíve been able to figure out with the help of Arminius2. In this simple step-by-step guide youíll be on your way to fake push email heaven! That BlackBerry is looking worse and worseÖ Full instructions with pictures after the jump!

    First, youíll need ssh installed on your iPhone. We use Terminal, but this method will work for anyone using a SFTP client. You want to copy the com.apple.mobilemail.plist to your computer. Be aware that in order for this to work, you will have to have auto-fetch on already and not set on manual. The .plist is located in /var/root/Library/Preferences/

    Once the .plist is copied to your computer, youíll need to use a Property List Editor (.plist) to edit the file.

    In the .plist you will see the "AutoFetchInterval" at the top. Simply double-click this value.

    Then, just change the value to anything you want. It could be 10 minutes, 8 minutes, 1 minute ó you get the idea!

    Then all you have to do is replace the existing file on the iPhone with your edited .plist. Thatís it! Youíre so hip you can feel it!

    Quick note: this will remain active on your iPhone and you should experience no issues but, there is a but. If you go into Settings/Mail on the iPhone, it will reset the .plist and your changes will be lost. You can feel free to go into Settings and change anything else, just donít go into the Mail section or this will be undone. Thatís it! Let us know how it works for you. We got ours set to 2 minutes and donít notice a big drop in battery life, if any!

    Does it come with a re-mortgage application form when you are away from WiFi??

    can somebody build a small application rather than doing this "technically challenging" tweak, which most users find difficult to do

    Hi,

    this method is only suitable for flat rate internet access and can really pimb up your bill if you haven't a flat rate. The problem is, that Mobile Mail will close the internet connection and re-open it at the given intervall. E.g. my provider charged a 100Kb initially at every inrternet connet that led to a bill in the high 600s when I set this to two min.

    Just, that you know what you're doing here, you'd be better looking at the terms and conditions if you don't have unlimited internet with the SIM you're using.

    Cheers,
    Budy
