    Help with gmail

    I've had problems with my gmail syncing ever since I got the phone...just learned to live with it as it was. So I decided the other day to try to get it to sync by deleting the accounts and then adding them back. One account added back fine, but the other would not. I try to add it and it says "account already added"...but I cannot find it, nor does it download mail. Any suggestions? I know my phone came with the gmail app already on it...can I delete the app, reinstall it and start over or is it one of the apps that cannot be uninstalled without causing future problems?

    No to deleting the Gmail APP, that will cause you problems in the future. One thing you can try is going into Applications and go under ALL then find the Gmail app and clear the data and cache on it.

    Thanks....but it didn't help. It still says "you've already added this account". Any other suggestions?

    I'd you're doing all this from your phone, try it on a computer. There's more options there.

    I have no idea how to do that from my computer. Yeah, I'm pretty new to this android stuff.

    I don't want to do away with the account...I just want to have access to it on my phone. Razr says it's there and won't let me add it again...but I sure can't find it.

    Did you install a 3rd party battery app?

    I tried K-9 and it would allow me to check my email from that account....but it still wouldn't sync. I've deleted K-9 while trying to figure out the sync thing. This sure is frustrating. The syncing isn't that big of a deal when I'm at home because I have access to my laptop also...but I'll be gone for several weeks this summer and was hoping to leave my laptop at home, but if I do that, when I get back I'll have a few hundred emails to go through that I will have already gone through on my Razr.

    If you go to settings-device setup-connect accounts, does it show the account you're trying to add?
