    Had my phone two days and I've already managed to screw it up :eek:

    Gmail through the browser works fine.

    Notifications of new mail work fine; I can pull down the notifications bar up top, click on the mail note, and read/mark everything fine from there. But I'm screwed once I exit that. See, I can't just access gmail directly through the app. If I click on it, I get a black screen saying "your mail will appear shortly" and a note in the bar up top saying "waiting for sync".

    Anyone have an idea of what I did to the thing?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: fixed. See post 5. Just cleared Gmail data.

    Yes, everything is checked. I've tried unchecking/rechecking them, tried using wifi and 3g for connections, and it shows the little synching icon at the top... but nothing ever loads.
