My email won't sync. When I go into settings, then select email it shows that Sync is OFF. How do I turn it on?? When I go into account settings, select my email account it's selected to check mailbox every 15 minutes. But it won't with the sync off. Help!

Thanks!

Susan

System Settings > Accounts & sync > Turn on Sync in the upper right corner (tap the off, it's a toggle), then you can select which accounts to sync.

I should have asked about the specific phone; just assumed it was a Razr.

Go to Apps (the dots in a circle at the bottom of a screen), at the top of the apps drawer select Widgets, then look for "Power control", install it.  The power control widget has a button for Sync On/Off.  Not sure this is what you are after, but it's worth a try.

The Power Control widget did it! Thank you!!! Seems crazy you would have to do this, but I'm just happy it works
