    Hello Shannon – one of the first questions that I ask people with Gmail problems is whether or not they have the fundamental things needed to get e-mail – that’s internet access (you have internet through WiFi, so, check). The other is whether or not your account properly configured.

    A common issue with Gmail is that every time your password changes, it will automatically invalidate any device which you have previously automatically logged in. It should prompt you for the new password however, so this is a long shot.

    Another issue is whether your account has been properly configured to automatically sync your apps: In Android there are two degrees of syncing – either in the background or, a step-up, in the foreground (automatic sync). You may have automatic sync turned off. Try the following steps:

    You can manage your account syncing preferences by going to:

    accounts -> Sync Data

    In this menu you will see the two tiers of syncing – automatic and background. Make sure at least automatic is checked but it helps quite a bit to also turn on automatic. Hope that works!

    Sometimes it is just a matter of turning Airplane Mode on and keep the wifi on, but not usually. If you go into Settings, Wireless & networks, then Mobile network settings, uncheck the mobile data setting.

    If that doesn’t work, then go into Settings again, applications, and Manage apps. Go to Gmail app in the list, select it and clear the cache. Try syncing Gmail again and check. If it still doesn’t, then go back into Manage apps and clear data and try again. You may have to sign in again, but should work.
