    GMail stopped syncing to phone...

    UPDATE:

    After going to my contact list, I hit the menu button and went to "Accounts" since I remembered it showed the accounts for google/facebook syncing there. It showed my google account as off with an error. I tapped it to turn it back on, and it connected. I think looked under the google account where it shows options for contacts, gmail etc...

    When I tried to disable and re-enable the gmail option, it said that gmail syncing had a problem, but would be back shortly.

    So, maybe google is doing something or it is temporarily down?

    Let me know if anyone else is having this issue or if its just me.

    ========

    I noticed that recently, my GMail app that comes pre-installed no longer syncs with my GMail account. It never alerts or shows any new emails.

    I can see my new unread emails on the mobile web browser, but not from the app itself. I noticed that I had set "always use https" in my settings on gmail a few days ago, and it caused my GMail Notifier program on the PC to always get an error. So today I changed my settings on my email account to "do not always use https (the default option) and now my PC GMail Notifier is working, but my sync with the DROID's GMail app still will not show new/unread emails or notifications.

    I tried manually using the refresh option on the app in the phone, andi t shows the refreshing icon for a few seconds in the notification bar, but its still not reporting new emails...

    I think this is a google server issue for I have the same problems, but mine come through when I refresh. It's on and off for me, one day it will work perfectly, getting new emails within seconds, others, like today its on and off.

    I HOPE its a google server issue, and not a phone hardware issue. I just wish they would notify us when this kind of stuff happens.

    I'm having similar issue. Not receiving new gmail notification except when I manually refresh the gmail inbox from my Droid. It was working fine until yesterday, but all of a sudden it no longer automatically syncs with gmail. I haven't changed any settings or downloaded any apps or anything that might explain why this is happening. Any ideas?

    I now have the same issue, I only get emails when I hit refresh. This started yesterday. Up to then it worked fine. Hopefully there is an answer to this.

    I'm having the same issue Pequannock and GoGators. It was working fine earlier and then I happened to notice on my computer that I had 5 new emails but no notifications on my phone. Mine also works when manually refreshing.

    Try doing a Factory data reset. My phone had completely stopped syncing with gmail (even manual refresh didnt work). After doing a reset, it was all working fine.

    Not exactly an ideal situation, but at least it will download and install your apps automatically again. You won't lose any pictures/video on your memory card either. You will have to edit your phone and app settings again, though.

    Try turning off the phone and turning it back on. I had to do this tonight because gmail quit pushing email notification.

    Thanks for the tip. I may try that...or I may just go to Verizon and have them give me a new phone, since I just got this one Monday. Seems just as easy!

    Already tried that. I've gotten one notification since I posted, but then another email came through and I didn't get that notification. So I dunno what's going on...
