    Ok so having an issue. My Gmail accounts are no longer pushing data for some reason. Normally as soon as I receive a new email it'd download and I'd get notification. Now, I have to manually open gmail and sync before it'll download.

    I can't find a setting addressing data push, and my non-gmail accounts still sync/notify as normal.

    is there a solution to this i'm overlooking?

    Ok, so inlarry, have you tried using an alternate email app? And I know this sucks but a factory data reset may fix your syncing problem, no garuantees though

    My D2G stopped syncing gmail also - Edit: working now

    My droid 2 global has recently done the same thing. Everything has been fine for months. All of a sudden, a couple days ago, my gmail app no longer syncs automatically. If I manually sync/refresh with the menu button->refresh, all updates are done. But it's all manual now. :( And I could have sworn I had settings to turn data push on/off and under settings->accounts, I don't have any way to turn on/off the gmail sync. Under settings->accounts-<my gmail account>, it just lists things like Sync google+ "touch to sync now", Sync Calendar "touch to sync now", etc.

    Very odd. I'm running Android 2.3.3, Gmail 2.3..5.2. I'm rooted and have the free titanium backup, but haven't frozen any apps.

    This was working perfectly, so I'm really bummed about it right now. Thanks in advance.

    Edit: :) I just found my answer. My "Sync" widget was turned off. I have it on another screen and didn't notice it being turned off. Must have fat fingered it the other day. With the widget turned on, I also get the green check boxes to turn on syncing in settings->accounts-> <my gmail account>. With the main sync widget turned off, I didn't get the individual checkboxes in the settings->accounts. Problem solved.
