    Ever since Gmail upgraded the inbox to different categories, I have trouble with Gmail app on my Android phone. I chose not to use the categorized inbox and only checked Primary in my Gmail settings. I did the same thing on my phone. Now the default inbox shows no message at all. When I brought up the menu, under inbox there is only one option: Priority Inbox. If I click that, it shows most of my emails. However, unlike my other accounts which have not been upgraded, there is no plain inbox option any more, and I can't change the default inbox setting on my phone. I get no notification when I receive new messages. Does anyone know how to fix the problem? It's really annoying. I have over 200 filters in my Gmail. I don't need the stupid categorized inbox service they are offering right now. I just want to have the plain inbox back. Thanks!

    From the inbox choose settings using menu button
    you should see three things, general settings, your email address, about gmail.
    Touch your email address and then touch inbox type choose default inbox
