    I don't have any idea of what you're talking about. You enter your gmail address then your password and it syncs.

    Lets start over again. First do a battery pull for a full 30 seconds. Put the battery back in, boot up and see if you have the same issue. If you do, we will try something else.

    ok, did that and still no email, I got a notice "connection failed". You said that it should auto sync but mine did not, so I removed the battery and re installed,then I deleted the gmail account, went to apps, hit gmail icon, put in user name and pass, and it did sync this time, now it all works, I did not think about removeing the battery, re install and then try fresh to make a new gmail account,why removing the battery for a time let it sync in beyond me. Thanks for the battery tip as that cured it.
