Push Email on BB10 / Z10

I was very excited about launch of BB10 and Z10 device and was looking forward buying it whenever it is available in India. But just got some news on internet stating that BB10 will not need BIS hence no push emails. I am not worried about specifically GMAIL or Yahoo or Outlook/Hotmail but in general all type of email services and push notifications. Upto OS 7 I never had to worry about Push Email. I never bothered to check if my company email service provider has push facility, BIS managed that all for me.

 

If BB10 is not offering this service anymore then there is no point in buying Z10 or any other OS10 product, in fact I am thinking leaving BB forever. I really hate that auto retrival in 15 minutes or refresh. I would prefer to go to iPhone or Android if this feature is not there.

 

Can anyone confirm if this is true? I am really upset since I read about it.

 

Thanks in advance....

Re: Push Email on BB10 / Z10

Gmail supports "Push-IMAP, i assume Yahoo would as well.Outlook and Hotmail both support the ActiveSync protocol. 

 

As for your work email, most would offer ActiveSync if using Exchange which is push email.

Re: Push Email on BB10 / Z10

I was kinda dissapoointed when heard about no BIS with BB10. But now I think it is still doable. Also there are tons of new features in BB10.

This video convinced me again for BB10, looking forward to buy Z10 as soon as it is available in India.

Re: Push Email on BB10 / Z10

My carrier just told my there is no BIS email for Z10.

 

I'm going to have to revert back to my 9900 and decide whether I should stick with BlackBerry now they've taken away my primary reason for having a BlackBerry.

 

It's a ridiculous decision whatever the rationale.

Re: Push Email on BB10 / Z10

Just DON'T BUY IT, I regret I changed my old 9900 for the new Z10, email push was the only reason why I was loyal to BB. For my business getting emails instantly, as I used to with the old BB, is crucial. None of the new features, believe me, none of them matter if BB is no longer king of emails.

 

Too bad I got it in Mexico and can't return this useless phone...

Re: Push Email on BB10 / Z10

I dont know from where this thing of Z10 not supporting push is coming from. BB10 definitely supports push. The only thing gone is BIS. Push and BIS are totally different things

Re: Push Email on BB10 / Z10

"BB10 definitely supports push"

 

Yes it does.

 

However, what has changed is that BIS has gone for most of us, and that includes (apparently) BES push email for smaller BlackBerry enterprise clients. In other words, instead of getting email the instant it arrived at a support corporate mail server, you're left waiting for the mail to sync. 

 

Shouldn't be a major problem with ActiveSync - which is pretty quick - so Gmail and Hotmail are ok. But I'm not sure how effective that is for internal mail servers. 

 

My mail server isn't recognized by my Z10's no matter how I mess with it. I'm left having to forward business mail to Gmail - which is not satisfactory. I might as well have Android or iPhone.

 

The removal of BIS was a collosal change and makes BlackBerry just another phone. It is no longer the king of email.

 

So far I've stuck with BlackBerry, but apart from BBM there really is no reason to anymore. I can't imagine how the strategic decision making around this choice worked, but in my opinion it was a mistake. BIS should have at least have been a choice even if not switched on by default.
