Question Auto sync setting: where is it?

The Milestone 1 used to have an option (I think in settings -> account & sync) to enable / disable automatic synchronization.

Where is this setting in the Milestone 2? I can't find it.

I am using ADW launcher and have not added any accounts to Motoblur.

I tried adding a new gmail account, to see if it would sync. If I click on it it says:

Quote:
This accountn is not configured to sync automatically. Press Menu > refresh to sync mail once. Or press home and touch settings > accounts & sync and configure this account to sync mail automatically.
However, the setting mentioned in the message simply does not exist.

Searching the web I noticed other people have the same problem with other 2.2 phones but I couldn't find a solution.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I have found the solution!

I had to add the power control widget 9which I had removed) to the home screen and activate the autosync option. Now when I go to settings -> accounts and choose my gmail account, I have tickboxes next to calendar, contacts and gmail to automatically sync them.

In other smartphones the option can be re-enabled going to settings -> accounts & sync -> auto sync but the Milestone 2 doesn't have this menu.

Being able to reactivate something with a widget only seems to me poor design, if not a bug. Anyway, I found a solution...

The Motorola Milestone 2 is the European Version of the Motorola Droid 2. The biggest differences are that this phone runs on a GSM network. It runs Android with MOTOBLUR, but so does the Motorola DROID 2 on Verizon. Spec-wise it's all the sa... Read More
