    Hi,

    I recently bought an HTC Wildfire S. I used my gmail account and set it up so that my gmail, calendar, and contacts would sync (gmail automatic and the others manual when I needed to). All worked well. Then a few days later, nothing was syncing and every time I tried to press sync, nothing happened and it just would not sync no matter what.

    I then did a factory reset (very painful experience having to reload everything) and after adding my gmail account, everything worked well for a few days, and then the same problem - no syncing. However, the other email app on the phone is able to recieve/send my gmail without any problem.

    Is this an issue people are having with google/android, or is it my phone? I would never have thought that syncing gmail with android would be so painful considering google developed both!

    Probably the service provider or not set up properly. Not Android problem for sure.

    Can't be service provider issue as everything else is working fine (i.e. I'm also getting gmail pushed through the other email app as well...)

    Yeah I don't think its the provider. I wonder if your other email syncs are causing the issue. What happens when you only have gmail contact and calendar sync and nothing else? Does it solve your problem. Im just throwing some ideas out to see if we could find the cause.

    No, I only started the other email sync after the google sync stopped working, so it can't be that. I have also tried to sync calendar separately, contacts separately, gmail separately, all together, etc. and nothing works.

    On top of this, I deleted all my contacts while trying to fix the sync issue. I wanted to restore it from my outlook using HTC Sync, but even that does not work for some reason.

    I was going to buy another android phone, but I think I may have to reconsider!

    Google sync issues resolved (gmail, contacts, calendar). Apparently, I had very little memory available on the phone, so when I freed it up, the sync started.

    But would still appreciate some help on the HTC Sync. When I launch it on my computer and connect the phone, I get a message on my phone that says it cant find HTC Sync on my PC. But its there! I unistalled and reinstalled and still no difference...

    I also have this phone, and i think its great one!

    the same happens to me when my free memory is running low. make sure you have more than 20 mb free. move what ever can be moved to the SD, a good app to use is APP 2 SD. hopefully by the end of august we could re-ROM our phone easily.
