So I just upgrades from my iPhone 4 to the 5. Setting up gmail by selecting gmail doesn't push. I tried setting it up as an exchange and entering the information but it says the connection to server failed. Wtf is that??

Anyone have any ideas? It worked on my iPhone 4 just fine tonight.

No more gmail push for new iOS devices after Jan 30th. Basically Google stopped supporting ActiveSync.

Your best bet is to get the official Gmail app. That's what we all use now. Either that or mailbox app or sparrow.

Yes, but you upgraded your phone - so it stopped working. Basically, anyone who had it pre-configured on their device BEFORE Jan 30th, they were fine. Anyone setting it up after than (upgrade phone, restore etc) it will cease to work.

Do what I do: install and configure the GMail app, but use Mail.app instead. The GMail app will do push notifications of messages and you can just open Mail.app instead.

Is Exchange Activesync the only way to get Mail app push notifications (other than iCloud)?

It's totally on google side. If you would have purchased your new phone in January this wouldn't be a problem because google was still accepting new devices. It was per device, not user.

Everyone is eventually going to have a problem with this as they upgrade their phone. I'm on the fence about changing my email over it. The gmail client is OK, but isn't as quick to load as the stock mail client even on the 5. Idk... I've had my gmail account since beta and SO many accounts are tied to it. Blah.

Google as was said doesn't support EAS anymore so new accounts have to use the Gmail app or only do IMAP from it. Sux but blame Google in this one, can't blame Apple or Microsoft this time around!

Not per-account, it is per-device.

Sparrow doesn't support PUSH unless you jailbreak and install Sparrow+. I'm a little mistified by what Sparrow+ is doing to get PUSH working, but it works.

More-or-less the official GMail app works just fine. Just have Mail app setup with GMail via IMAP/SMTP for when you share something like a photo.
