anyone else having same problem for about the last week or two with your gmail account not auto pushing emails to your phone? In order to get my emails now i have to open gmail app and the hit refresh to get emails this has only been broken for about a week or two. I went into my email account on my computer and made sure all setting are correct and still isnt working also went in and made sure all setting on phone are correct still nothing.
I would try the "CLEAR CACHE" procedure to see if it fixes this first. It's fairly benign and is a quick way to clear any garbeage in the phone before going to extremes like Factory resets, etc. So try this and report back.

Thank you to the Community for your responses.
Were you still experiencing the issue? Is this the primary Gmail account on the device or a secondary? Please post if you need further assistance.
I can't count the number of people that I know that are having this problem. It is very rare that my GMail syncs on it's own. Yes I have the power control widget on my screen and yes it is set to auto synch, but it doesn't. My wife's DX has the same issue. It should not be a surprise that this, like so many other problems, started with the upgrade to Gingerbread. I'm beginning to think that the patch to fix all of our DX Gingerbread problems is a pink unicorn. Mythical in existence, often talked about, but never seen. Perhaps one of you Verizon folks could update us on the status of it.
Just curious - have you actually done the Wipe/Clear Cache procedure I posted up above? Personally, I do not have any "syncing" issue with GMAIL or Google Calendar for that matter. I get notifications when I get a GMAIL email - along w a ringtone. And it arrives (or sends) instantaneously for me. Yes, I did the CLEAR CACHE procedure within the 1st week of getting GB.
The "fix update to GB" is all speculation right now as to when it will arrive. Even MOTO is being pretty quiet on their forum about it. The only "confirmation" that we've seen was posted in THIS forum last week; but no actual date - just soon.
Good luck. (PS - I don't work for Verizon. Just in the hot tub with everyone else.)
Yep, tried the cache clear procedure, but it didn't help. It's interesting that when I cycle the auto synch button off and back on or go to the Gmail app and referesh, it will fetch my email and will generally continue to synch for a few hours and then it stops again. It is terribly frustrating. As for the GB update, that is why I said it is a pink unicorn. I won't believe in it until I see it with my own eyes. Thanks for the response.
I know email is a very important form of communication. I do understand you have attempted to clear the cache and turn sync off and back on and you were not successful. In this case, with the type of device you have in order to remove and re-add the gmail account for success we would need to complete a factory reset. This will erase everything on the device so please back up prior if desired. You can do so by navigating to Settings>Privacy>Factory Data Reset>Reset Phone>Erase Everything. After the device power cycles it will prompt you to re-program by choosing option 1. Please observe and let me know if this was successful for you. Thank you.
