    1. Make sure your connected to a data network. You'll see either a 3g icon next to the clock, or (if you're wifi, a radio looking icon).
    2. If you see neither of these (only bars) go to Menu > Settings > Wireless & Netorks.
    2a. If you want WIFI, checkmark the "Wi-Fi" option then setup Wi-Fi under "Wi-Fi Settings".
    2b. If you want 3g, checkmark "Mobile network"​

    One of those two should do it for you. Unless you want 4g. That's in the same place, just scroll.

    When you go to the Internet on your phone, are you able to pull up any websites?

    Yup, internet works as normal, texting is ok too.... everything seems normal except the gmail. I keep trying the refresh it and it says " no connection" and gives me the option to "retry" . I am at a loss as to what to do.

    My problem started when i tried to send 14 pictures that i took with my camera this past weekend. Could that be freezing up my gmail? I have sent as many as 34 pics at a time on my Hero, and it worked fine.

    Go to settings>Manage Apps>Gmail


    Manage your space and make sure everything looks ok. Then try clearing your cache and seeing if it works after that.

    You can always force stop it too and see if it works when you go back into it.

    I think in those instructions it said to do all the steps then power off the phone and power it back on.. Did you do that after the steps?

    Could it be that i am trying to send too many pictures at one time? It seems to work if i send only 2 pictures. Why is that happening? Am i "overloading" the EVO?

    What probably happened is you had a network hiccup while trying to send the photos and it corrupted your gmail account data on the phone. I think if you've tried all of the steps, the only option left is a hard reset (unfortunately).

    My gmail has been working fine all night now, I received several notifications. I even sent 3 pictures out using my gmail acct. I will see how things go today and let you know. If I do have to do a "hard reset", what do I lose on my phone?
    Thank you so much for all the help and replies too, it is really appreciated.

    You *won't* lose any data saved on your SDCard. You *will* lose any apps you installed. But as for contacts, email, etc. that's all backed up in the cloud. After a hard reset, enter your gmail credentials and it's all back on your phone.

    For your apps, you could download a program called appbrain from the market, set up an account and sync your apps...
