1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I am not receiving any emails normally. The only way I can get them is if I do a hard refresh on the phone.
    Any advice?
    I have a motorola droid and use verizon.
    This is for just the gmail account.

    Are they delayed by a few minutes or will you see a new email pop-up in Gmail and then even after hours, not arrive on your droid??

    They are not popping up at all.
    Not even after 10+hours.

    I've seen several threads like this over the last couple of days. It makes me wonder if it isn't a system issue of some sort.

    But then again if it was a system issue we'd all experience it, wouldn't we?

    I don't remember turning the sync off?
    How do I check to make sure?

    Thanks.

    Stock email app: works fine for about a week then stops fetching. Solution: switch to k9 or delete accounts in stock app and redo once/week.

    Gmail app: eventually stops syncing/connection problems, possibly due to sending attachments. Solution: go to settings > manage applications > filter > all > gmail storage > delete data

    ALSO, "gmail notifier" in the market takes care of gmail not notifying you for every email.

    Nothing to do w/ email but my 4th tip is to reboot phone every 3 days if people you call are sometimes complaining about echoing/muffled/garbled voice. You won't get these complaints if you use bluetooth/speakerphone a lot.

    All of these bugs have been reported. Verizon/motorola/google should be ashamed of all this fundamental stuff that's broken, but at least there are workarounds, right? I still love my droid & it still kicks iphone butt.
