    For the last handful of days, I just realized my mail stopped pushing to my phone. I have to manually refresh my mail.

    I know I disabled my Twitter sync, since it was causing that com.bg type error..but wonder why my mail is no longer being pushes.

    My Yahoo and Exchange seem to push fine..but not gmail.

    Go back and check GMail settings again. Mine syncs perfectly.

    Did you do the airplane trick? I lose my gmail sync after I do that...

    Hmm. Weird.I dunno what to tell you. I still think you should go through every menu relating to syncing and checking to see if an option is unchecked, for some reason.

    I think it IS the airplane trick that stops the gmail push.

    I went into my accounts and turned off sync, then re-enabled..so we will see if that helps

    I found that while the airplane trick is "enabled" you have to manually sync to get gmail.... I had to reboot to "disable" the airplane trick and then all syncing happens on it's own.

    But I wonder if that's really an issue, per se. You could look at the CPU Idle process in task manager the same way... on the surface, someone new to windows would exclaim "WHAT IS THIS TAKING UP 99% of my CPU???" I wonder if it's something poorly worded and isn't really a problem or really eating battery any differently.

    I am going to reboot, not worry about the airplane mode and see if my battery life drains quicker.

    Up to date, its been doing pretty good with my task killer running, running Home, and disabling haptic feedback, screen brightness, etc..

    I do the airplane trick all the time and I get gmail push. Sometimes gmail push stops working after I turn off 3G and re-enable 3G. Then i have to reboot my phone like 4 times before things work again. Same thing with GPS...If i turn off gps when I'm indoors and re-enable it, I won't be able to get a signal lock unless I reboot. Now I just leave everything on.

    I've replicated this many times, I'm on the latest 2.1 leak (non-root) and I lose Gmail Push every time I use the Airplane Trick. As soon as I reboot, the gmail push works again, until I re-do the airplane trick. I've always got 3G and GPS enabled. I sometimes enable Wi-Fi, but don't use it much.

    Have any of you been killing off GTalkService? This will stop your gmail from syncing if you do.

    Maybe by turning on Google Talk, but you are probably better off just restarting the phone.

    If you are using ATK, I have it kill every service, save for ATK itself. GMail still syncs for me.

    Interesting. Does gtalkservice show up in atk? I remember this causing problems for a few people a while back. Mostly they where using the running process thing under applications in 2.1 though.
