    Hey, I'm having an issue with my gmail synch. I have a new Droid 4, running stock, and my phone doesn't update when I mark items as read via gmail webmail on my PC. I'm using gmail through whatever the normal route is, ie: Messaging and then the GMail icon. I've checked most of the mail settings, and it says that gmail must use Data Push? This worked perfectly fine on my old WinMo 6.5 phone, so any help would be appreciated.

    Don't use Messaging.....just use the Gmail app that is in your app drawer. Not really any mail settings you have to do for it.....just configurations for font size, signature, etc...

    I can have an email open on my phone and be typing an email reply on my PC (web gmail) and it will show up on my phone (slightly delayed) as I'm typing it.

    Damn. You're right, the GMail app works fine. I was hoping to use the Messaging app, as it saves me the trouble of having FB, text, and Gmail icons on my screen. This just decidedly made the phone less functional to use.

    Thanks for the info, I'm going to have to play around with this thing some more now. -Sigh.-

    Wow, this is a very interesting piece of information. I'm going to give it a test as well. Thanks! :D
