Background data vs auto-sync?


Friday 01st of April 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
I don't quite understand the background data and auto-sync settings. If I have background data on and auto-sync on, then I can choose which apps I want to sync in the background. For example, I have mail, twitter and weather turned on, but everything else off. If I turn background data off, auto-sync is also turned off. I assume this means background services will not update. But what if I have background data on and auto-sync off? All of the apps get grayed out. Does that mean they will not sync in the background? Then what does background data do? I just want a setup where messages, mail, twitter, weather and one or two other apps sync data in the background, either by pushing or by scheduled time.

Cyanogenmod and auto-syncing Google


Monday 03rd of December 2012 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi! I'm new to Android and I have some questions.. The easier one, how do I auto-sync google apps such as gmail and music? I'm on 4.2. When I go to Settings > Scroll down to Accounts > Google, I see a small message saying "Sync is OFF". If I click on that I can manually sync, but I don't see any options for autosync. Also, will getting Cyanogenmod benefit me since I already have 4.2? From my understading, Cyanogenmod is an alternative to the stock Android ROM, that lets users update to the newest firmware earlier than waiting for it to officially rol out for their device. Am I right on this? Or does Cyanogenmod do that plus add new features? And if they do, what is an example of these features? I want to know if it is worth the root and voiding my warranty. I know I've asked a lot but I would appreciate some help!

gmail app will not mark email as read on the server and will not even send an email


Thursday 20th of May 2010 / androidforums.com
Hi,gmail app will not mark email as read on the server and will not even send an email without doing refresh. Yes I disabled the auto sync.NOW when on the "accounts" screen in gmail app if you press on menu you can go to a settings. There are 2 of them there.Background data and autosync. Even when both enabled The server is not updated immediately if a message is read (probably happens after an auto sync).what makes sense is to enable the background but disable the auto sync. So if I send a message or read it it can do the sync but not do it all the time byitself. But no that does not work.Incredible you are NOT incredible!Would someone explain to me what I am doing wrong?and NO I do not want to use the mail client of the OS. It sucks too. At least here you can search for emails.And another question. Why when I go to labels and click on "sent" it always finds nothing?Thanks.

HTC One Calendar with Google Calendar - notifications? Does everything have to sync all the time?


Sunday 10th of November 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
This is my first ever smartphone, and I'm not so smart about it yet. I've had it for about a week. I would like to use Google Calendar, and I would like to be reminded of events I create in it. Google Calendar does this by sending time-sensitive email notifications, which I can customize (e.g., I can have 3-week, 2-week, and 1-day reminders for one event, unlike the reminder system on my HTC One Calendar, which uses a single default setting across events, e.g., "15 minutes". I would like to use different notification settings for different kinds of events). Is it true that in order for me to receive these email notifications at the times I want them, my Gmail account has to be set to auto-sync? Which means that it is constantly syncing, whether I am on a wifi or data connection? In Settings, I do not see an option to just have my Gmail auto-synced; my options are "Google" or "Mail" (and I have two other email accounts set up; I do not need all of them to be auto-synced). I have to use a data connection for ~3 hours a day. What would having auto-sync fo

Auto sync does not work on 3g


Friday 15th of August 2014 / androidforums.com
Hello all, I have recently purchased the Z1 compact and love the phone. However, I've recently noticed that some apps won't auto-sync over 3/4g. For instance my Email app refuses to connect to the server, downloaded the outlook one and that connects just fine. I.e. I don't believe it's the connections fault. My web browser works, and connects to my email account without fuss. Also noticed that instagram was holding back notifications until I connected to wifi. If I try to install apps from play.google.com from a computer, the app will not start downloading until I connect to wifi. My yahoo weather app does the, only auto-updates on wifi. Somehow facebook messenger will notify me off new messages. My whatsapp works swell as does my viber.Please advise on what to do? I have made sure that auto-sync is enabled. I have not Restricted Background data. I have not reached my data limit. I've deleted and reinstalled my internet settings a few times, there is no address on the proxy field. I am usually able to solve most of these things on my own, and if not, google will always be able to
