    Where is the setting to sync when you open mail/calender/contacts?

    OK.....this is driving me nuts. I distinclty remember seeing and selecting a setting that forces mail, contacts and calendar to do a sync action upon opening. I have been through all the setting I can think of and I don't see this anywhere. And in fact all of these apps DO perform a sync when I open them. I remember setting this up somehwere. Can anyone please point me to it? Thanks.

    I think you want settings > accounts > Gmail.

    Yep Holly got it right. Settings/Accounts & Sync/ and then tap on your account and the menu will appear.

    Good luck.

    Nope. That option isn't available in the settings for any account on my GN and I remember it used to be....right where you are describing it. Can either if you post a screenshot showing the thing I am looking for?

    We were both answering the question we thought you asked, not the one you actually asked!! "Opening" is the word I think we both missed. Sorry for the confusion. You are right I did not find that setting anywhere. You could just turn off Gmail sync and then only sync when you open the app and press sync symbol at the bottom of the page.

    Sorry.

    Thanks for checking. The account appears to exhibit the behavior I want....it automatically refreshes when I open a folder. I just remember enabling this somewhere...maybe I am simply remembering a setting on my old HTC.

    If this setting doesn't show up on your GN either then maybe it isn't on the GN.

    The good news is that Sync On Launch appears to be the default behavior on the GN.
