Gmail won't push (and I did NOT update to Froyo!)

    I know a lot of people have been having this problem AFTER updating to Froyo, but I haven't done the update yet and my Gmail just quit pushing about 2 days ago. I've had my Evo a little over a month and this is the first time this has been a problem.

    It's not even that it's just delayed, it will not push AT ALL without a manual refresh. Sometimes even the manual refresh doesn't bring up all of the most recent stuff.

    I've tried hard and soft resets.
    Deleted account and reinstated account.
    I only have one Google account.
    Google Calendar works.
    GTalk is logged in and working.

    Again, I know this has been a post-Froyo problem for many and Google is addressing it (according to another thread on here), but what about for those of us still on Eclair?

    Suggestions appreciated, please and thanks.

    Do you have 2 GMAIL accounts setup?
    I had the problem only with the secondary account but it fixed itself the next day somehow after i tried ALL the fixes i could find on the internet. May be a Google issue?

    No as I said in my original post, I only have 1 Google account.

    And it's still not pushing. 4 days now.

    Capt. Obvious here with no offense intended by the following - but you've covered all the other bases...

    • Background data / Auto-sync settings?
    • Gmail appropriately checked under the account portion of Accounts & sync?
    • Pesky task killer didn't somehow get in the way of things?

    PS - Your workaround of course is to use the Mail app and set up some reasonable polling frequency for Gmail there. I use Mail myself because I just don't need the super-instant notifications that some do - and the frequency settings are per account and per peak/off-peak hours of your use. Also - remember to change the weak sig that comes with it if you go that route for an interim solution.

    Haha, hello Captain.

    I haven't changed anything about accounts/sync and background data for a month, so I think all of that is fine. I do not run a task killer, but i do have System Panel Lite, with Google services marked as exceptions so none of them are ever bumped to the background.
