    Sync/Battery Problems - SOLVED

    ive been trying to figure out why my battery wasnt charging and why it was draining so fast on sleep.

    my calendar was at the top of the list of apps using battery, i got to digging around and on the gmail sync menu the clendar and contacts sync icons were constantly spinning, hence my battery problems.

    at the bottom of the screen it says Sync is currently expierencing problems. it will be back shourly.

    so if anyones having same problems, just turn off sync for gmail for now until its back and running

    Hondaguy - how did you get to the list of apps using the battery? I've got the same problem with sync/battery and it was trial and error to locate it. I also found that the gmail calender was the sync not completing.

    Thx!

    Thanks SAL! I knew bout that one but it didn't show me any percents specific to "sync" or "calender" as Hondaguy stated.

    I did find "sync feeds" as a package under "Android system" but the percent shown was only for "Android system".

    HONDAGUY - I was really hoping to find out how you could see:
    - my calendar was at the top of the list of apps using battery
    - at the bottom of the screen it says Sync is currently expierencing problems. I did a manual gmail synch and the calender sync just hung but while contacts and email finished in seconds. I didn't get any message thing saying it was experiencing problems. What options did you use to get that message?

    Thanks for the help all!

    Perhaps phone settings > applications > manage applications > menu > filter > all > calendar storage > clear data would clear up the problem.

    If gmail keeps syncing, do the above but clear gmail storage data. There's contacts storage too. Try clearing 'em out and they'll resync w/ google's servers.

    What causes this? For me, it's been wifi. I've had wifi off for a month and no problems since making the change. Hopefully 2.1 will fix it.

    I was using spare parts, its like extra settings for rooted phones and it has other battery options, my sync just says its expiriencing problems whenever I check the contacts, and the gmail doesn't stop lol. But email is fine, I'm going to try to do the clear data and ill post an update...btw I'm rooted with petes 2.1v8 buglessbeast

    You're welcome. I'm gonna be a broken record on this one: if your syncing messes up or if your pop3 email stops polling in K9 or stock email app then the problem may be wifi. Today marks 4 weeks for me with none of these problems. I turned off wifi 4 weeks ago. I'm not saying this will work for everyone, because there are other reasons why syncing/polling can break. It's just something you might want to try because it has been the key for a few people. Turn off wifi, reboot, and never use wifi again.

    Don't use an automated task killer. Don't use antivirus.

    Yup. Even verizon says that the yahoo mail fix that's supposed to come with 2.1 ota still wont work with wifi. (One memo says "verizon" wifi, another just says wifi, implying all wifi. ) I'm a little obssessed about that lack of functionality.

    I was actually talking about wifi causing problems for any pop3 account and for gmail/calendar/contact syncing. I've also heard about wifi causing problems with the music player!

    But yes, yahoo + wifi is messed up. Yahoo wants you to pay for their premium email account. Yeah right.
