Basically the problem is that auto-sync just doesn't work. I have it turned on in settings, but it doesn't happen for my google accounts. In fact, it seems it will sync my contacts about every 10 minutes (way more frequently than any changes happen in my contacts...) and for a while it was syncing my gmail about every 20 minutes (way less frequently than changes occur in my email, depending on time of day) and everything else seems like it will only sync manually, even though it's set to do it automatically. I gave it about 10 hours and they never synced, so I'm assuming that equates to no autosync. I was rooted, but I just unrooted it and didn't restore from my google account, so there is nothing installed or running on it that should make it behave any differently from normal. I've tried both on 3G/4G and on wifi. Neither one will get the accounts to auto-sync. ETA: I'm on 4.0.2 Anyone else experiencing this problem? Any thoughts on solutions? Is there an app that will handle syncing? (Possibly allow you to change sync frequency?) How frequently is your phone syncing?
