Why isn't the number of emails I have displaying on my iPhone 4 ?

it will only display the number of email to my iPhone when I actually select the mail button then it shows the number

I'm not sure that I totally understand your question. You will see how many NEW emails that you have on your application. Select your email box and view those emails. Once you are in your email you should see anywhere from 25 to 200 recent messages all depending on how you have it set up. I have the new iPhone 4. If you go into your settings and scroll down, look at the 'show' button. This is where you can select how many messages you would like to view.

That works fine but shouldn't the mail button automatically show you the number of Emails when you get one I turned the sound alert off but I thought it would update on it's own. Like show a 1 2 or 3 if you have or get new mail

I would reboot it. Turn it off for a few minutes then back on. I've never had this happen and I've owned one since they first came out.

If that doesn't work then go to your local AT&T store and see what they can do to fix it or replace it.

It only shows the number of new, unread e-mails. To see the rest you have to press your mail button.

It could only be because it shows the unread emails. Also, you might just have tp reload your emails with the little circle thing with the arrow.

Go to mail in settings then go to fetch if it says push, tap fetch, then turn off push then select 15 min.'s. When it is set on push that means it won't show new emails till you open your mail. If push is already turned off then something is wrong. Hope this helps!!!
