Gmail with push settings is horrible in offline mode, can't move or delete messages. MUST be Online, otherwise undone. IMAP was better

depend on how you use ... when i use 2g only, talking for about 30 mins per day and about 15 mins of e-mails check (activating 3g and/or using edge and/or wireless), it lasts about 4 days for me. I I use 3g the whole time it lasts 2 to 3 days
