    My gf's moment has been recently updated to the official 2.1 update, but ever since, she hasn't been receiving her gmail notifications. She has to manually update it. anyone else have this problem?

    Does she have the 'background data' option enabled? It needs to be on for Gmail to update itself.

    Menu-Settings-Accounts & sync-Background data and Auto Sync

    You will have the option on that page to add an account.
    Just add the Gmail account if it is not listed.

    Go into Gmail account....
    Make sure that under settings(top right)
    Go into forwarding and POP/IMAP and make sure POP is enabled.
    Also make sure IMAP is enabled

    If that doesn't do it, you may need to flash the phone again and set all defaults again.
