    Anyone else having this problem or is it something with my phone? Haven't ever had this problem before which is why I am wondering.

    Obviously Sync is turned on, background data is checked, auto-sync is checked, and it says Sync is on for my Gmail account.

    Yet I have to manually hit refresh to get an email now. I noticed it this morning because I had emails sent to me at 9am that I didn't see until I opened up GMail on my computer and saw the messages sitting in there two hours later.

    I had an error on my screen when I came into work that gmail sync had an issue. Trying to sync now to test.

    Odd, I didn't see any errors on the screen today.

    I'm trying to do some Google searches but mostly people that just don't know how to set up sync in the results I'm getting.

    Ok, weird, I sent myself one email from GMail to myself on my computer and it came right through. Then I sent a second and it didn't at all. Nothing from myself has come through.

    I've had the same problem the last few days. Sometimes push works, sometimes not. No idea what's causing it. I was thinking it might be the Gmail unread widget I had recently installed, but if a factory reset didn't solve it for you, I'll hope it works itself out. Today push is working fine for me after problems yesterday. So, I can't really help you except to say that it may or may not fix itself, and that it seems likely it's a Google problem and not a phone/app problem.

    Someone told me to empty out my gmail cache or whatever but that was the only piece of advice I got and it worked for like ten minutes.
