I'm brand new, so be easy on me.
I have a Samsung I897 "Captivate"
running on Firmware: 2.2, Kernel: 188.8.131.52, Build: FROYO
I've been having problems leaving the sync function on, the phone freezes up, runs hot, and doesn't ever seem to sync.
I can retrieve emails through the gmail app by "refreshing," but I'd like to receive them as they're sent.
I took the phone to an AT&T store to troubleshoot it before I was sure it was the sync function. The rep there barely looked at the phone and just suggested I replace it while it's under warranty, but it's not my style to just replace hardware when the software is the problem.
I haven't had the time to investigate exactly which function on the sync is causing the problem, but I have cleared the app data for gmail and that did nothing.
Edit: I haven't been getting any error messages either.
