    I am having a problem with my gmail. I haven't been able to get it to sync since 9/20 at 6:25 pm, it just keeps saying "no connection". I have tried to push it, I have tried to fetch it manually and on a set schedule and I just cannot get it to sync. My google contacts and calendar are syncing with no problems. I really really don't want to do a factory reset on this phone if I don't have to...... Any ideas greatly appreciated. My data manager is not set to sync over wifi, and I have even turned wifi on to see if that would allow it to sync but no luck. TIA

    normally I would say try removing the account and redoing it, but since you cant remove your default gmail account... you may have to do a reset. Perhaps wait until 2.2 is released tomorrow, upgrade and see if it resolves?

    Settings/applications/all applications/gmail/clear cache and data. Don't worry about the pop up message.

    Ok, also, its detecting how many new messages I have, it just won't load the conversations, that is when it says "no connection" if that helps any......

    once under manage applications, go to options, filter, set to all. It will be there, resort into a-z if needed to make it easer to find.

    Ok, thanks, I didn't realize it automatically filtered the applications. That worked, clearing the cache and clearing the data and its back to working again. Thanks a lot guys!!! Appreciate it!
