    My gmail won't push email. Google voice seems to push sms and voicemail ok, text messaging works, but gmail I have to go in and manually hit refresh. I wipe data and cache 3x flashing from gpa13 to 14. Using Pete's sv 600mhz kernel. Anyone else having this issue?? Maybe I'm overlooking something stupid! Have background data enabled, sync is on. So I don't know. Thanks in advance for the responses...

    From your homescreen, press menu, choose settings, then choose Accounts and Sync. Select your Gmail/google account and make sure "Sync Gmail" is checked. For whatever reason, in GPA builds, this is not selected by default.

    (Also, this has been discussed numerous times, so you could probably save yourself time and frustration if you use the search feature.)

    I am having a similar issue. My Gmail just stops syncing every now and then. Manually hitting refresh brings up the "Loading conversations..." message and stays there forever. I wiped 3 times before installing GPA14. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Gmail. I do have Gmail sync turned on in account settings. I've tried switching to airplane mode and back, but no luck. The only thing that gets it syncing again is a reboot. Odd thing is, I've never had the SMS problem so many others have.

    That sounds like a separate issue, and the only thing I can think to suggest would be to wipe and reinstall, which is a pain. But...it might help.

    I figured on a fresh wipe and install when GPA15 is released, if it's not too far off. For now I can live with it. But after rereading the OP, I agree with you that it does sound like a separate issue. Sorry Aggie if I hijacked your thread.

    If I'm not mistaken gmail isn't included in GPA builds. You have to go and get it from the market. Then you go and check it after install.

    I believe it's the same with other google services like reader and what not.

    If there's no internet, that's the problem. Connect via wifi and set it back up that way.

    I am having a similar issue but when I get into accounts/Gmail it no longer has the box to check for "sync". When you hit email it manually syncs but does not keep it in sync.

    It does sync if you hit refresh while in email or go to accounts and hit sync.

    Suggestions?

    Could the issue be that wifi is dropping out while the screen is asleep thus causing syncing to stop? I froze Gmail in GPA15 and am currently using K-9 Mail to see if it works better. So far no issues at all.

    Is inermittant for me. My 'Mac' mail was syncing fine...but my corporate email had no new messages. I rebooted my phone this morning and poof...10 new mails. A couple from yesterday afternoon.

    I thought that I was the only one having this gmail push problem but I guess not. Gmail didn't synch even though I manually hit refresh. The only way to solve it was to reboot it then it works again for a while. I wipe data and catch x3 flashing from GPA 13 to GPA14 just in case I missed something but it still doesn't synch occasionally. "Sync Gmail" is checked so I don't know what is causing this sync issue...

    To anyone having issues with this, do you have CPU tuner installed by any chance?

    Possibly. Check your settings, cpu tuner may be automatically disabling your auto sync. It was on my phone. I adjusted the settings and now I'm good to go. The default settings are pretty aggressive toward saving power on your phone.

    I wouldn't remove it, just adjust your settings a bit.

    Edit: My apologies, I read your response too quickly. I thought you said yes regarding cpu tuner. No, SetCpu should not be the culprit in this case. Sorry! Good luck with this, I hope you get it figured out.

    This is a problem with the rom. I've had gpa14 for a few weeks, wiped four times before install, still on stock kernel. No setcpu or overclocking or theme. My gmail doesn't sync either even with sync turned on. I tried force closing gmail, restarting the phone, and hitting the refresh button. None of it brought up my new messages. Finally when I deleted and redownloaded and then hit refresh, I was able to get my new messages.
