    I have had the Hero since October 9 and never had a problem syncing my AOL email with my Hero.
    I have had it set to sync every 15 minutes and all worked well.

    About a week ago I started noticing issues with not getting my messages consistently and I started seeing a message below the emails saying
    "Get More Messages ____ messages total on server" (I don't recall seeing this message before). If the number of messages on the server is greater than what I have on my phone, I can manually sync and they will down load.

    Sometimes my messages will sync, but not consisitently. As I type this I see that I was showing 9 messages and the server had 11 so I manually synced and two more messages downloaded to the phone but they were from over an hour ago.

    I have tried deleting the account and re-setting it up but that doesn't seem to correct the issue.
    (BTW, my exchange messages still sync fine)

    Any ideas on what's causing this?

    I have had the same problem,which I posted a thread about about a week ago, but haven't had many responses. I don't know if other people aren't experiencing this, or if a lot of people don't have AOL anymore, or what. I am going to post about it on the sprint forums to see if anyone has a solution. BTW, sometimes when I click get more messages, it still won't show me new ones, only older ones or it shows the new ones twice.

    If you do get a response on the Sprint Forum, please post it here as well (or post a link to it).

    Using WiFi by any chance??? before when it worked and now that it stopped?
    Try turning off WiFi and refreshing mail... I dont know, just a suggestion. I know my yahoo won't work with WiFi enabled, its a glitch...
