I got my Thunderbolt on Saturday. Other than being sorely dissapointed at any lack of a DECENT instruction manual being given to me with the phone, I'm happy with it. It's also my first Android, as I am a recovering Blackberry user.
I feel like the phone does not check my email as frequently as it should. I did the automatic set up, do I need to do something in the settings to up how often it checks my email server? I'd like it to check every five minute.
I apprecaite any and all adivce. Thanks so much!

The Thunderbolt is my favorite phone & it has excellent capabilities. The steps that was provided by 21stNow is correct on the path to change the email delivery interval. I also wanted to add that by changing the email delivery frequency, more of the battery power is used. To offset this power usage you can change some other settings in the device. Here are a few suggestions.
1. Adjust the screen's brightness
2. Disable bluetooth, wifi, & GPS when not being used.
3. Unckeck device vibration when on silent
4. Disable apps running in the background when not in use.
Enjoy your new device!
Thank you so much for your kind reply! Indeed I had solved the initial problem from an earlier reply, but I SO appreciate the tips on how to concerve battery life! I am loving my T-Bolt!
