Q1. Well here goes, this is my first question on here.
This should be an easy one for yous, well i hope anyway, but i am still baffled by this. What happens when i click the auto sync button and it lights up blue?
What is it this EXACTLY does? any help would be appreciated, as i dont have a clue what this function actually does, i havent noticed anything happening when this feature is selected.
Why is it on the phone and what does it do?

Thanks for the reply wooks63, i was talking about in general, not an app.
I have this grey box widget, and on it are various things like WI-FI, BLUETOOTH, BACKLIGHT, GPS, AUTO SYNC etc.
and when its off, the symbols are grey colored, and when i select them on the become blue. Its this auto sync i am referring too.
You say its something to do with google mail, what is it you can sync to google mail, and what is syncing?
Cheers Del1701, just the answer i was looking for, i dont have any of them accounts so thats maybe why i never ever noticed it doing anything.
I had to set up a google account when i bought my android, thats about it, and i have no contacts or emails saved in the account, so i think that makes sense now.
Thanks a lot, much appreciated.

Facebook will sync contacts, albums ect so you can see your facebook friends details in your phonebook or their pictures in your album ect, twitter is not so invasive, it will just try to sync contacts

I make sure that my contacts are all sync'd with google mail. This way, I've got a backup in case my SIM corrupts. Also, it meant that, when I changed phones, my contacts got sync'd back to the new phone straight away, so no re-keying of phone numbers etc.
The Sony Xperia S doesn’t differ too much from the Ion: it features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 12MP Exmor R camera sensor, and a 720p display, only here it is 4.3-inches in size. If it looks familiar, it’s because we have seen this... Read More
