    I have seen a couple threads but nothing that answered what I am experiencing. Without any changes to settings....over a week ago my email stopped updating. It does not manually update....and it does not automatically update. I have been through all the settings in the Mail function itself....and also checked all the boxes in the "Data Usage" section of the phone to no avail.

    Did someone figure this out in a thread and I just can't find that thread? Thanks in advance for any help

    Anybody...at all? Seems stupid that one of the primary functions of the modern smart phone suddenly just doesn't work. After only using the phone for two weeks it might be time to consider a return.

    Is it GMail? Did you enable two-step verification by chance?

    People will want the usual information in order to help you: Rooted vs non-rooted, type of address/account (eg. Gmail, exchange, Yahoo!, etc.), email clients that you use (eg stock, gmail, k9, kaiten, etc). You have only provided a little bit of information.

    Did you change your password? I know with my work e-mail, I'll forget to update it on my phone and wonder why I'm not getting new e-mails.

    It's something with AOL's pop email. That happens to me every now and then on this phone and happened on my Photon also. I usually have aol sync'ing every 30 minutes, but for some reason, that doesn't seem to work consistently.

    My email has stopped pushing autimatically, both aol and gmail. I can push it manually and it works, this has only been the past few days. I'm not rooted, I did battery pull, unloaded app and reloaded, checked all settings a dozen times.
    I ended up downloading Maildroid from the market, and it works perfect, both for my gmail and aol.

    Non rooted

    Also stopped updating. It lets me refresh and I get new emails after I do that.

    I just noticed my sync button on drop down notification screen was turned off.
    fixed my email problem.

    Secondly I noticed driving mode was turned on. That annoying female vioce that speaks is gone.

    I feel so much better about myself.

    It's the little circular arrows at the top right. Try deleting and recreating the account on your phone, or even better, set up gmail to pull in your aol mail.

    -EDIT- Nevermind. Just saw that you're on ATT.

    The top toggle bar on ATT doesn't have a SYNC toggle. Just looked at my co-worker's Note 2.

    But, double check all of the accounts you created on your phone, to make sure that they're set to SYNC. If you scroll down in the settings menu, you'll see where all of your accounts are listed.
