    Hey, no problem - without clear documentation or a crystal ball we have to rely on socializing the information and that's tough enough, but even tougher with tech.

    This short thread may be interesting:

    http://androidforums.com/htc-evo-4g/135730-gmail-still-not-syncing-reliably-evo.html

    Talk isn't canonically required for GMail - but the idea is that whatever service it coordinates is correlated to the sync delay problem for others.

    Try it for a while with Talk off. Your 10 second result may indicate that there's more to the story or it may have been a coincidental result. Retest from time to time, or just go in every so often and see how the notification time matches up with the mail time. You can't say what was happening before, because you didn't know that Talk had run and set up this mysterious port/service, if true.

    And - we've no idea that it might be the same or different with 2.2 - as that thread mentions, a single socket was all that was required.

    Others with different custom roms report no talk/mail correlation and that makes sense to me - if all you need is a single socket, you'd think GMail would just deal with that all on its own.

    Anyway, the other thread is short and gives food for thought.

    Like you said, I don't have all the answers - that goes without saying. :)

    I am sure it will be fine. I have not downloaded it or installed it because I am patient and don't need to have the latest and greatest until it is ready to be shipped out. I am glad others BETA tested it though.

    It was really funny watchiing people hit refresh and melt down on Friday. I think that is what the OP meant by overhyped, and it completely is. When you are melting down over a phone update to your cellular device, you are at a level of boredom or unhappiness that I hope to never personally feel.

    And no slashcontrol.com or email in your photo gallery either.

    We need an app replacement - it's not an upgrade to an existing app.

    (At this point, you're visualizing Bender holding up an applause sign for me. :lma0: )

    ;) - cheers, compadre!!

If there is one to test the speeds... but damn they can make the 3g symbol look different , even change the Android man when making calls, but they can't add the 3d gallery to work with sense bs dude I wish I could turn off sense just to see it

    Get chrome to phone. You get a button in the browser you can push and shoot the URL to your phone. It pops on the phone like an alert. It's pretty cool!

    I dont see much differance in the update. Phone still runs about the same. Not much speed differance. Battery is still the same. Facebook sync finally works so thats cool. i synced with appbrain and hard reset my phone. For watever reason my apps after the reset are gone. So i have to start over. O well,didnt have that many. Anyways im not ranting. Just sharing my froyo experiance.

    Use appbrain to keep track of your apps. Make a new list, called it "backup" or something similar then copy the "apps on my phone" list to the backup list. Makes reinstalling much easier.

    *shrug* The phone is noticeably faster to me; especially with the home screen transitions.
