I just realised why my drop-call solution is so much superior to any
IMAP-idle or interval checking. It's funny no one thought about this
When using IMAP-idle you can hardly suspend, can you? At least it would
be necessary to keep the connection open, handle incoming traffic and
wake in case of new mail. I guess to do so will require the whole system
to be running.
When using interval checking you have the extra costs and extra battery
drainage because of resuming every 3 minutes.
If you use notification by drop-call, the FR can sleep through - the
modem handles the wakeup.
