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 having a slew of connectivity issues on my unrooted Moto Droid

    The notable (I think this is it...) include:

    1) Google Talk won't connect. When I open it, the signing in screen displays for a while and then I get an Authentication Error that says: Google Talk failed to login. If this is a Google Apps Account (which it is), confirm that Chat service is enabled for this account (which it is).

    2) When I attempt to download an App in the Market it just says "Starting download..." and shows a loading bar but never actually downloads anything.

    3) My GMail account is not automatically syncing even though that setting is selected. This was working until a couple of days ago but now I have to manually refresh my GMail account to see my mail and notifications do not appear.

    I have tried a battery pull and looked through the settings to see if I noticed anything that was off.

    I'm not sure where else to go with this...

    Thanks in advance for the help! :icon_ banana:

    Before doing a factory reset (which may well be required) do the following:

    Menu>Settings>Applications>ManageApplications>Menu>Filter:All

    Find all of the google apps you're having trouble with including both gmail and google talk. Then delete the data and/or cache associated with each. Then turn the phone off and back on.

    If that fails to solve your problem, your next step is a factory reset.

    Are you sure that sync is on for all accounts?

    Don't use a task killer.

    Be sure to clear "gmail storage" data.
