I just noticed something interesting. I didn't get any push email to my
phone until I opened google navigation and navigated to a local business.
Once I started navigating my email started coming in and kept coming in as
long as I used navi.
It got me thinking that maybe once I launch an app which uses 3G data,
perhaps email wakes up and starts to push again.
Later in the day, after it was about 3 hours since my last email, I decided
to launch pandora and listen to music. Sure enough email started coming in
as soon as the first song played.
Anyone else want to test this theory as well?
Perhaps these apps "wake up" the dormant 3G connection and mail starts to

Willdog, after 2 hours of no email push from exchange, a email push from Gmail jump started my corporate sync. It has been over two hours since that gmail message and corporate sync push is still working. You could be right.

From reading through the link above, it appears that both MOTO and Verizon higher level tech support has been aware of this problem since early/mid September, and that (I think) was supposed to be fixed on the first D2 maintenance update - clearly it wasn't.
I know those posts were made by anonymous people on a web forum, but there's no reason for me to think they were being untruthful at the time. How come MOTO appears to have just found out about this problem? I mean, it looks like they had the same discussion with MOTO and VZW tech support 2-3 months ago that we're having right now.

They have not just found out about this problem. DroidX users have been
complaining since July......

It's just weird that MOTO *appears* to be scrambling to fix this right now, when the problem has been known to most people on these forums for months. I guess I'm just trying to make a point.
I'm not sure what has changed to make them want to fix this NOW as opposed to 4-5 months ago. Maybe they aren't really trying to fix it, as it appears that they promised a fix several times already and didn't follow through.

I think they kept thinking the next tweak (which would be implemented on
each new device or update (See Froyo for droid x users)) would fix it. I
think they probably were working on it, but not going guns blazing, knowing
their next "try" would be right around the corner. Now, it seems like they
are all out of options and the issues appear across their entire MOTOBLUR
platform. Knowing it will be hard to blame everyone and not look at their
set up (seeing that all other phones work fine - as does the stock android
apk) - they know bad PR is likely coming soon and are now going full bore.
Thats my two cents without any thing of substance to back it up.

I'm surprised that publications such as engadget, etc... Haven't picked up on the fact that a phone marketed as "Enterprise Ready" is really... Not.

I'm in the same boat - it really amazes me that this hasn't gotten any legs in the media. How many of these devices have been sold so far?
Imagine if iPhone couldn't work with activesync - there would be a media hellstorm!
I have a friend that runs a smartphone blog & website...hmmm...

I am currently a Milestone owner, but I am getting Droid 2 Global to replace it hoping for a better experience. (the new phone is en route to me). This thread here scares me a bit as I am heavy Exchange user.
Looking at the thread here, everyone is experiencing those disconnects on Verizon's network. I believe CDMA technology does not allow for simultaneous data and voice communication, could that be a reason for problems with push, specifically the way BLUR handles the connection? Has anyone tried to leave phone on WIFI connection (and disable wifi sleep) and see if problem occurs in this case?
