BB10 supports push email - stop the nonsense.
BlackBerry 10 supports push email.
I have a Z10, a Gmail, an exchange and a Hotmail (Live) account and no matter what connection I'm using (wifi or 4g) my email gets delivered in a matter of seconds.
Please stop this nonsense.
That is all.

I think the bottom line is for some people they will not notice any difference since activesync/exchange accounts still are "push" but there are other accounts that before with BIS that do not operate the same and are no longer "push." So while some people have the same capabilities others will not and for them, they no longer have "push."

This is all very accurate information - which I don't think anyone who has read up on the subject is disputing.
The advantage for BIS users using POP3 (even if it did poll for mails every 15 minutes on RIMs end) was that there device wasn't polling - and push connections are much better for battery life than polling ones. There is some good reasons, but the main one is that idle TCP sockets do not use any packets to stay alive, which reduces the amount the radio is doing. Radio comms is battery intensive so should be avoided where possible. RIMs solution was to use a single connection to push information into the device, aggregating the data from multiple sources and using servers to do the polling, which is how they managed to get good battery life (or at least some of it)

So the question remains. Can we set up the Z10 to use the BIS to "push" our pop3 account emails to the phone?
Or, is the phone doing the polling and "pulling" it in the only option.
That's the question that has yet to be definitively answered by someone from BlackBerry.
We hear people say that BIS is not gone for BB10, but no one tells us to what degree it is used.
I have BIS on my existing plan (AT&T). When I upgrade sometime around late April or early May, after activating the phone, if I go to the AT&T BIS portal web site, will I be able to detect the new device and have my email account populate itself on the phone?
A simple yes or no will do for that question. If not, I'll look into other options dealing with the on-phone polling.
If you require push on a pop3 account you can forward that email to a push capable account.
The 15 minute polling is no different then what the BIS provided.

email@example.com/net address - and PIN messages... anything sent to that special address would be "pushed" out to the device immediately. As Email services evolved with more features enabled and more efficient use of IMAP4 the BIS service was extended to allow a few more addresses.
But still - only the blackberry.et/com was really a "push" email from the beginning..

I don't ever recall BlackBerry marketing push email over BIS. I think we the consumers talked it up, as there were ways to accomplish this; but the only push email I ever saw BlackBerry marketing was BES/BESx.

I don't mind forwarding my Rogers/Yahoo POP account to my gmail account to get instant notification, but there isn't a way to reply from the pop account... So my email firstname.lastname@example.org can be forwarded to email@example.com and it will come to my phone instantly, but when I reply to the email, I have to reply using my gmail account, not my rogers/yahoo account which is a problem for me...Living the world of Blackberry and a fan of the comeback!
