This issue i have only seen on Android 4.2
Issue seems to be happening since the Android 4.2 update and appears to be linked to a new setting “Auto-sync data” which is not enabled by default.
I was adding an exchange account to my phone, the exchange details were going through but was staying on “Waiting for sync”.
If you are using the Android 4.2+, you can enable the setting “Auto-sync data” to resolve this issue.
Please do the following steps:
- Go into the settings menu
- Click the Data usage option.
- At the top right of the screen there are three little squares stacked on top of each other, click that and enable the Auto-sync data.
- Restart your device.
- You should now start receiving your emails…
