You’re on vacation or travelling outside Canada and don’t want your phone to automatically download email. Configuring your “push” settings is easy. This way you can manually download your files when you’re in a Wi-Fi spot. Here’s how:
Steps may vary by device and Operating System version.
1. Open Settings and then tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
2. From here, tap “Fetch New Data and slide Push to the Off position.
3. In the Fetch menu below, choose Manually. Now your phone will only download new messages when you launch your email app.
1. From the home screen or app menu select the Settings icon and scroll down to Accounts.
2. Select the email you’d like to modify (if you use Gmail, select “Google,” for example).
3. Once you’ve selected, tap your email account (should be at the top).
4. You’ll see a menu. Now you can pick and choose what services you’d like not to sync (Calendar, Contact, Email, Google Drive etc.)
TIP: Here you can also modify the sync setting for other services such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
NOTE: Varies based on version. How-To above is based on a Samsung Galaxy SIII device.
NOTE: There is no way to change the email synchronization interval.
1. From the home screen, tap Settings and then Accounts.
2. Select the account you want to modify, then Advanced and Push.
3. Toggle to the Off position.
1. Access the Settings menu and then tap email + accounts.
2. Select the account you want to adjust (Google, for example).
3. In the Download new content field, tap it and select manually.
4. Do this for each email account you have set up.
