    i, like most people, have issues with gmail syncing. after putting the phone in airplane mode, clearing the gmail cache and data, restarting the phone, taking airplane mode off, my gmail sync will work maybe for a day or 2 max, then it will stop again. how long does yours last?

    sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

    No, you're in the right spot. You just happen to be wrong about most people having problems with gmail syncing.:) Most people don't have a problem with it, you only see the one's who do have problems talking about it. Why would someone who doesn't have a problem with it talk about it?

    i guess...but what's the point of a smartphone when it doesn't sync up correctly and you are unable to receive important emails?

    About a week / at least three days. I wonder if it would be possible to write an app that would clear the data every day. I doubt it, unless you are rooted. By the way, all I do is clear the Gmail Storage data. Don't reboot, etc. that you listed and it seems to work fine.

    I've heard it mentioned that the sync issue is exacerbated by sending attachments. I'm not sure if this is true, though.

    I have a gut feeling that the problem is worse when I use the web-based gmail client to delete emails/etc. Maybe the sync problem occurs less often if I only use the droid to delete/move emails. I'm not sure if this is true at all. I'm going to experiment.

    To be honest I think most of this problem is having to do with people not knowing how to sync their mail properly to gmail. Some don't even have sync turned on. If you go to the gmail web site and look at settings, make sure you have everything configured properly. There are help links on each tab.

    What email are you using?

    I don't know guys. There are what(?) 1.2 or 1.3 million Droids out there and there are 23 people on that link you provided. That doesn't sound like a known issue. That sounds like 23 people that are having issues that are probably due to app conflicts/wrong settings/etc. with their gmail account. This "know issue" sure is hitting a small number of people.

    If it was me; I'd delete my account settings totally and start from scratch. Also, setup your google email in K-9 and let it push the emails to there for a while and see if it does. These kind of things can tell you more about what is going on.

    I use Gmail and Corporate email with Exchange. I purchased my Droid on Dec 26 and started receiving email in both account less than an hour after I purchased the phone.

    I've never lost my connection, any email, nor have I had to re sync.

    For about as long as you've been letting the mainstream media do your thinking for you. (sorry for that comment, the pettiness in me won out). :) Your comment did make me chuckle. It was funny and I like funny.

    I did have to laugh about reading of the person describing a 6 mile terror ride in their runaway Toyota. I mean why would I care what a person that is not smart enough to slip the transmission into neutral over the course of 6 miles have to say??? And the "hearings" - one of the best run organizations being investigated by one of the worse run organizations in the history of the world. I mean really? Really? Really?

    I am having the same issue. It's actually more common than some realize, I think. I did a lot of searching forums and whatnot to find others with the same problem.

    I have two Gmail accounts set up on my phone. They are both set up correctly. They are set to sync automatically. Sync is on and all that stuff. As far as I see it, there is not any user error on my part.

    Sometimes my emails come through on time, but they usually do not. I am constantly having to refresh my inboxes myself to get my new emails.

    I read that someone uninstalled Advanced Task Killer because it was causing him this same problem with Gmail. I did the same but it only helped for a few hours.

    There has to be a fix.

    I noticed today that my emails seem to come through right after a new update is installed. Not sure why that is though?

    This morning I updated Twidroid. Once the download was complete, emails started coming through that were sent hours before.

    Just tonight I updated ColorNote and the same thing... My emails that were sent hours prior came through.

    I have two gmail accounts set up on my phone and I haven't had any problems at all since December. My calendars sync well also. I hate to say it but I'm calling user error on this one.

    If it's user error, I can honestly say I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. A girl at the Verizon store set up my first email account. I set up the other.

    Sync is on for both accounts. In "Accounts & Sync Settings," I have background data and auto-sync checked. Gmail is not being kill by an app killer or anything. I don't have any problems getting my emails right away on Google's website or the Mail program on my Mac.

    I don't know what's wrong? So I can't see how this is user error on my part. For some, maybe. But I think there is something else that needs to be fixed.

    Do the people who don't have gmail sync problems send attachments from their droid's gmail acct? This was one theory for the cause of this. Do you use wifi?

    I have no market apps that run in the background--no task killer, nothing. My gmail is great most of the time. I don't understand where this "user error" could be. Nonetheless, I'm going to muck about with things and I'll let you know if I figure anything out. One thing I do use is "gmail notifier". It doesn't run in the background. Anyone with sync problems using that app? Hmm...
