    Anyway to have just Gmail sync on?

    Like many of us, we turn sync off on this phone to conserve battery especially since they add in unnecessary options such as stocks. But I would like to have my Gmail sync turned on and receive emails. Is there anyway to do this?

    If you go into "Accounts & Sync" in your settings, you can toggle your Gmail account to sync, while toggling off the sync to your other accounts.

    But that's like a manual sync. I want it to be where if I had auto sync on and anytime I receive an email, I also get it right away on my TB.

    Not if you leave the background data and auto sync on. Manual sync would be opening the application then hitting refresh. Gmail is the only thing I have auto syncing.

    I'm re-opening this thread as I see the question is not answered correctly. The question is:
    How can we turn on the auto-sync only for the GMail app, and leave this options for the other things off (so sync is "on" only for the "emails", not the contacts, etc.).
    (It has nothing to do with different accounts, but for different data pertaining to a single account!).

    2 year bump. Woohoo! And the question is answered correctly...go to settings and click accounts and sync as mentioned. Click the account you are signed in under. Then untick all the options for sync except gmail...

    So, I guess you are talking only about this specific type of phone, HTC Thunderbolt, and not about any android phone. If so, then it was my mistake

    Nope, this works on all Android phones.

    It does NOT work on my Xperia Go!. The items under Settings > Accounts & Sync > gmail... are not check boxes, but simple buttons which do a manual refresh whenever they get pressed!
