    So about 2 weeks ago I started having difficulty getting gmail to sync with my phone. I had the same issues when I got the phone back in February because I cracked the screen on my old pre2 but it seemed to work itself out after a couple of days. Now, today I have figured out that my texts aren't getting to/from the phone. I've tried deleting the gmail account and readding it but it doesn't seem to do anything but erase what emails I did have on the phone. I'm getting by with having the phone pull from my verizon account (which I have routed to gmail) but since verizon doesn't support imap there's no syncing going on which means I have to erase emails multiple times.

    Any suggestions?

    No suggestions, but a question. What account type do you use for gmail on your pre2?

    Google
    IMAP
    EAS

    I am using Google, but will be adding IMAP and EAS to see if there is a difference.

    I have a standard gmail account but I have it set up for IMAP. I never had any issues with my original pre (sprint) or my first pre 2 (verizon) but my newer pre 2 seems to have issues. It checks my mail occasionally but not consistently. Basically I have it now checking both my verizon email and gmail (which fetches my vz mail also) so that I don't miss anything important but verizon doesn't support IMAP so it's a pain to deal with.

    Maybe try removing the account, let it delete all data, and then add it again?

    Other thoughts, recently changed password? Using two step id?

    do a Backup, then do a reset: Erase Apps & Data. When it comes back on, sign into your profile and see if it restores, which it should.

    i offer this suggestion with the caveat that I don't know much about IMAP, and what login requirements it has to synch, that could be causing your problem. as suggested above, a dual security requirement, maybe something new like you need to login from a home computer and identify your phone as a permitted access point.

    i have 3 gmail accts, one set as primary, and i default to google, not Palm for calendar, contacts, etc. there's far less chance of google losing my data than HP. i also have a hotmail POP, and it synchs/deletes from server w/o issue. good luck.

    Maybe... some "corrupted" e-mail?

    Look this:

    I don't think that it is a bad email because my phone sync's periodically (every day or two), it is the weirdest thing. Thanks for the link though. I have had issues with my touchpad's email for over a year and haven't been able to fix it. Basically, I was just using the web browser to get to gmail but I will try your fix and see if I can actually use the email app.
