    Okay..so I recently switched over from Blackberry and Im still trying to get a handle on my new G2 Android.
    I love it lots so far...but Im having an issue with my email messages.
    My G2 will only hold emails as long as 'last week' ago. My blackberry would keep ALL my emails unless physically deleted it from my phone, or on the computer. I Hold on to emails until I no longer need them, but my phone will not keep them longer than one week.
    Is there any way to change the settings to keep ALL my emails?
    Also, how the heck do I change the notification tone for my email so that I don't have to have that chirpy bird any longer?

    Thanks a bunch!!!

    Hi, if there's a gmail icon on your phone (there would be) tap on that, and use gmail for now unless you find something else you'd rather use. You can customize how long to keep messages in settings, I'm pretty sure.

    For your notifications go into phone settings/sounds and change or eliminate the sounds you don't like.

    In the email app, look under settings and choose the account. In there should be an option for how many days to sync.
    Once you have that set up, scroll down further to Notifications. You can change the sound there.
