    Hey guys, I have the Moto Droid running 2.0.1 (of course) and for some reason, my phone has been perpetually "syncing". The little swirly icon has keeps coming up and it will stay there for hours sometimes (sometimes for days). When this happens, the top of the phone gets pretty warm since I guess it's constantly trying to send or receive something. This also kills the battery REALLY quickly and is becoming quite annoying.

    I tried stopping facebook from syncing since that seems like one app that might be a culprit, but it didn't help.

    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Not to mention the obvious, but have you tried a battery PULL?

    that happened to me, turned out i had tried to send a video thru email and it got stuck trying to send the video. so i went on my desktop computer and went to gmail and discarded the perpetual draft that was causing this.

    You could also try removing and re-adding the e-mail accounts on your phone.

    Well...I'm still having this problem. For now I'm just keeping "auto-sync" off.

    I'm hoping that somehow the 2.1 upgrade will fix my woes. If not, then I need to start looking further into this and what can be done to get it fixed.
