    After upgrading to 2.2, haven not received one gmail on the phone. Just checked my laptop, I have 79 new emails.
    "sync is having problems..."
    Do not use this phone if your business is dependent on it.

    I'm not sure I'd run a business off of free internet email.

    are you using the gmail app? or the mail app? try going to the app in app management and clearing data/cache and re-add the email account.

    How many of you have gmail as their business email? Be honest.
    Luckily, I do not. I do have gmail account as personal.
    I have my business email on the "mail". That is why I posted "network error"!

    I'm sure there are millions of people using gmail for their business. My point is if it goes out or you have problems, best of luck to you.

    Even a simple paid service would have a phone number and support for things like this. But then again, it seems you feel the EVO is at fault, so you may want to look into Blackberry / paid email service for a serious business.

    Then again, I have no idea if you are running a cell phone accessory kiosk at the mall or a 100 employee consulting firm, so I'm shooting in the dark here.

    EDIT: Ok, I re-read your post. It really sounded like your OP was saying you depend on your EVO and gmail account for business. Apparently I was wrong.

    Gmail app for my personal accounts
    Mail app for my business accounts
    The former is sync problems
    The latter is network error
    I have tried clearing data/cache with same results.
    In this day and age, sadly we are so dependent on the phone. Don't they test these things before releasing the update.
    My boyfriend is laughing because my BB with same emails is constantly beeping of incoming email.
    What a joke of this evo

    I've never lost an E-mail...you are doing something wrong...but I see an iPhone in your future anyway. I know this because your thread title is a pure troll and you haven't even looked for help.

    How presumptuous of …. I have (2) personal Gmail account & (2) Paid business emails on the evo. Only other app on the phone is swype (not working with latest update), handset (also not working), and Jorte. My email traffic is heavy. This is why I have the Blackberry as backup.
    Sad to see the BB beeping all day while the evo is quiet. As matter of fact, the BB has (3) additional emails.

    i'd love to offer some help, but i don't understand (fully) the error you are getting.

    sidenote:the title of your topic, is not likely to attract a lot of people who might be able to help you.

    i've had plenty of trouble syncing my emails in windows mail, and outlook. i didn't choose to say that my computer was a joke as a result. usually once a problem like this is figured out, it is a setting, in the software, and not the software itself, nor the hardware that cause the problem.

    my email is working fine.....

    I own my own business and have three email accounts coming into my mail app flawlessly even after the 2.2 update. My Gmail personal account comes in immediately via the Gmail app. Maybe ask some questions and search for answers before freaking out?

    Considering Google has recognized this as an issue quite possibly on their end, I'd bite that tongue before blaming it on strictly the phone.

    Well I based my posts off of your confusing and baited post.

    Anyhow, good thing you have a blackberry backup. I see an ESN swap in your future. Adios!

    I'm having the same problem since froyo update. My e-mails would get sent to my phone even before they arrived on my pc before the update, and now it doesn't get them unless I manually refresh or sync.

    It's a known issue that the secondary acct won't push for a lot of people.

    Sounds like user error to me..... DOH....!!! I hate when that happens...!!!

    My EVO's work like a champs. The 2.2 update on both my EVO's worked flawlessly (mine is the Unofficial .3 and the wifes is the Official .6 Froyo)
    Email works great with 2 Gmail and 2 business email accounts on mine and 1 Gmail and 1 business email on the wifes. No issues just pure bliss..... :cool:

    The sad thing is I "advance flip flop" with sprints last week so the BB would be the backup and Evo would be the primary. Now "advance flip flop" again.

    FYI, my girl friend just called to inform me that her company sent her an email stating she has to report for her night shift. She never got that email because guess what phone she has/had.

    If I were to offer a service that 5% complains of problems, I would consider that a solid failure. Look at all the new problem posts after the update? Success?

    Read of all the problem posts. You are lucky and blessed. But don't contribute others problem to user error because you don't have the issue while LOTS other do.

    2 Evo's in my house, BOTH work very well. if you truly have a problem and would like help with it. why not post your questions again?

    Try setting up your gmail account through the regular mail app instead of the gmail client. Just a shot in the dark but who kows, maybe it will work. Its how I have mine set up and receive everything fine. I actually prefer it over the gmail client since access is instant and doesnt have to 'load conversations'. I know its just a second or so but still kinda bugs me.

    Yeah, the title of your thread certainly will draw a lot of ire, however can understand the frustration when things dont work like expected.

    Why don't you make an effort at fixing the problem instead of complaining about it? Google has a search engine ya know...
