    For some reason my Gmail auto sync keeps turning off. Is there a setting I'm missing here?

    As far as I'm concerned, it's the one that uses a different email app. I removed GMail a few phones ago. Email (it's the name of an app), MyMail, K9 Mail - there are a lot of better ones out there. I got tired of every update of GMail having a new bug. (Not remembering sync - especially push, bringing back deleted emails - lots of little annoyances.)

    I've never had a problem with gmail sync turning off.

    Settings / Google (under accounts) / tap the gmail account. Is gmail checked?

    Settings / data usage. Tap menu control upper right, is auto-sync data turned on?

    Gmail had never given me a problem either. However, I downloaded Zoho. It's pretty comprehensive. It's my secondary email.

    I've been using it for a while and never had an issue until this past week. Both those settings are checked, yet when I go into Gmail there's a grey bar near the top telling me "auto-sync is off,tap to turn on"

    I keep tapping to turn it on, and have also checked within settings of Gmail. Not sure what's going on

    Hmm weird. I might try tapping clear data in settings / apps / Gmail, restart the phone and see if that clears the issue. You'll have to go through settings in the Gmail app again if you've changed notifications, etc.

    Nope, still happening. It's so weird bc I don't think I changed anything as far as settings. It just began happening a week ago
