OK... I tried looking for a time interval setting but couldn`t find one.
I open the Gmail app ---> menu ---> setings ---> and then I have ---> "general settings", "email@example.com" and "about Gmail". Under "General settings" I have 3 confirmation boxes: delete, archive and send, swiping conversation list, replay all, auto fit, auto advance, hide checkboxes and message action. Nothing about a time interval setting.
Under "firstname.lastname@example.org" I have: "Priority Inbox", "notifications" (checked), "Inbox sound & vibrate" (ON), "Signature", "Sync Gmail" (checked), "Days of mail to sync" (30 days), "Manage labels" (that`s where I have turned on the sound & sync to various labels), "Download attachments" (checked). Again, I found no time interval settings. That means that the app will automatically check for new messages ???
The thing is that all this settings work just fine when I`m on wifi and like I said: test email are showing up within seconds after being sent. Wonder if there may be some settings of the gmail app when its off wifi - on mobile network? I also checked under "Settings" ---> "Data usage" ---> "Gmail" and the "Restrict backgroung data" box it is not checked so I should be getting the notifications.
I also checked under "Settings" ---> "Applications" ---> "All" ---> "Gmail". There is a "Launch by default" which it says "No defaults set" but I also can not change that... or at least I don`t know where to change it from. Also not sure if that would do anything to solve the issue I have.
