    Default GMail sync setting

    I have been trying to set the gmail sync setting. All I can figure out is that the sync is either auto on or off.

    The other email accounts have settings for sync frequency and are easy to manage but I cannot find any way to control the frequency of gmail syncing.

    has anyone else tried or found out how?

    thanks

    John

    Try adding your gmail account to your regular email client on the phone as a POP mailbox.

    xocomaox is exactly right. When you have it setup through the gmail app then it is automatically "pushed" to your phone as soon as you get it. When you just set it up through the generic email app then it is "pulled", or retrieved, at whatever intervals you have it set to in the app.
    For me, I am fine with it being pushed instantly. However, if I had all 6 of my emails addresses pushed then my battery life would decrease exponentially. Like it did back in the Ye ole days of the Blackberry.

    I actually turn the sync off on my Gmail. I prefer manual sync, but then again I don't use my Gmail as often as my other email accounts.
