    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.
