Issue with messaging apps? (beejive/google talk/whatsapp)

Might be related to push and/or Sprints network but I've never had this issue on my previous phone with T mobile.

Basically the phone doesn't seem to notify me about new messages, is as if it doesn't receive them until the app opens:

Example:

I open whatsapp or beejive or another messaging app and as soon as I open it I will get a bunch of messages, the time stamps on them are in the past though so it seems it just never came through the app until I actually opened them.

Anyone else have this issue?

Add gmail to that now... Seems like all push services.

As a follow up:

I have noticed that the data doesn't come through the the 4g is idle.(Zzz)

I tested it with two applications:

Whatsapp, have a friend send me a message with 4g active, message came through. I had the same friend send me one with 4g in idle mode and the message does not come through at all, even if I browse the internet and make 4g idle again, the message will only come through after I open whatsapp again.

Beejive and eBuddy messanging apps: I opened my own account and tested from my PC with the same scenarios as before, I get the same results.

It seems my phone is losing a data connection all together when 4g goes into idle, now this can't be right can it?

Looks like the NS has the same issue:

This can't be right can it? I mean completely shut off my phones data connection when the 4g radio is sleeping? How does this make sense..

Anyone?
