    Gmail rocks. I get notified of a new email faster than the webpage does.

    Check Settings > Accounts & sync. Make sure it's ON and auto-sync is on.

    I had this happen once. I ended up turning off my mobile network and my wifi, then turned them both back on. No problems since. :)

    I heard if you Refresh it from Gmail, it works.

    I unplugged my battery and refreshed Gmail and mine's ok now. Try that.

    No. I've been told that 3G uses more battery than Wifi. Turning on Wifi disables 3G, so you'll save some battery that way.
