i have two droid-x`s pretty much identical setups (both have been rooted and not rooted and both do the same thing)
currently i do not have cellular service on either droid-x
both droid-x`s are currently running 4.5.602 OTA rooted (but i have tested stock and they do same thing)
both phones are setup to use wifi 100% of the time

"settings/wireless & networks/Wi-Fi settings/menu key/advanced/Wi-Fi sleep policy/never" = checked on
"settings/wireless & networks/Mobile networks/System select/Automatic" = checked on
"settings/Battery & data manager/Data Delivery/Background data" = checked on
"settings/Battery & data manager/Data Delivery/Data roaming" = checked off
"settings/Battery & data manager/Data Delivery/Data enabled" = checked off
"settings/Battery & data manager/Data Delivery/Social applications/Sync over Wi-Fi only" = checked on
"settings/Battery & data manager/Data Delivery/Social applications/Data delivery frequency/Automatic (Push)" = checked on
"settings/Battery & data manager/Battery mode/Performance mode" = checked on

on my desktop i login to my hotmail with chrome browser (windows 7 x64) i then send an email to my gmail account
when i do this i have google chrome setup with notifications and it notifies me i got an email
on my phone when screen is black (locked) i sometime get a notification and sometimes i do not

with skype for android
i pick up my home phone and call my skype number
sometimes i will hear it ring and alot of times it goes straight to voice mail

i can confirm with froyo everything worked 100% of the time
you know when your phone hasnt rang all day something is really wrong
same thing for gmail...i get email`s from spam at least 4x a day and i hear it on my google chome browser for my windows 7 pc and about 1/5 the time i will get a notification on my phone....

there is something majorly wrong for sure
i dont know what other apps have push settings.
is there a way to find out what apps are supposed to be syncing?

on my router i checked the logs and the phones are staying connected 100% of the time
not one drop in like 3 days unless i reset the phones or something
there is a sync/push issure for sure with gingerbread

can someone else verify their gmail push by setting their phone to the settings i have above (if applicable) and then logging into another email account and send yourself a gmail email?
check to see if your sync/push is working
i am betting its not working on any apps consistantly
let me know

little more info to add
if i turn my phone to off
i then turn my phone to on and let it boot to the lock screen but i "do not" unlock it and i let it goto sleep and if i wait like an hour and try to send me an email or call my android skype number none of that will make it to my phones`s
if i hit the "back" button to look at the "locked screen"
i can then see my "wifi" and "cellular" are white in the notification area instead of the normal blue.
if i then unlock my phone and let it boot to the desktop the "wifi" and "cellular" will turn blue and then i will recieve my emails and skype notifications

there is definately a bug somewheres....

more info:

after i am at desktop of phone and i let the phone fall asleep and i wait a little over an hour.
i then hit the back button i can see notification icons of the "WIFI" and "CELLULAR" they are still BLUE
i then slide to unlock....it goes to desktop and then after a couple seconds the "WIFI" and "CELLULAR" BLUE icons turn WHITE for about 15 seconds or so and then they go back to BLUE....and then i hear my email notifications and skype missed calls

this GB IS BAD!!!!
something majorly wrong with sync/push/wifi keeping connection but losing data or something
something just is not right

anyone going to at least attempt to verify my results?
dont take that long to test it out
after you make changes:
power off phone
pull battery 5 seconds
put battery back in
power on phone
then follow directions in 1st post.
see if same happens to you.

it dont take an hour i think you just have to wait like 10mins
