I hope I can explain this right. I'm only 2 days old on my new Motorola DROID, so I've still got lots to learn I'm sure. Hoping I could get a little help with this one. If you go into "Settings" and then to "Accounts and Sync", I have two GMail addresses there, and one Facebook account. I noticed that when I had the "Sync" checked for my Facebook account, the droid started pulling pics, email and numbers from my friends Facebook profiles as they txted or emailed me or send me stuff on Facebook. Not to into this. I have a nice contact list, and I keep it up to date. I have no need for my DROID to start messing with this. So I turned off the sync for all my email addresses and the Facebook account. Now it seems that I'm not getting notifications when I get email or updates on Facebook. Does the sync have anything to do with getting notifications from those apps, or is there something else I might have done to keep notifications coming up for my GMail and Facebook? Aside from help with the notifications, I'd really like to know the purpose of the sync. Anyone have any thoughts? Is it just for sharing contact info, or does the Sync allow the DROID to keep looking at the apps for new notifications? Thanks so much!!!
