OK, I really ma a pretty smart guy and have been an Android user for many years. I cannot, however, for the life of me find/remeber how to set my GMAIL for MANUAL SYNC. I have a 3rd part mail app that I prefer and have set to PUSH my GMail via exchange settings. I still need to sync Google Calendar and Contacts for my company account and want and I like to have my personnel GMail sync'ed manually via the GMail client. I can find where to select what I want sync'ed (Calendar, GMail, Contacts. etc.), but cannot find where I set it to MANUAL or a specified frequency. There used to be a SNYC section in SETTINGS, but it seems to have vanished. HELLLLP ME!! before I go totally nuts.
BTW -- Stock ROM for now.
