I'm really sorry if this is a stupid question but I can't figure out how to find the Autosync setting on my Maxx. I go to account under settings and it's not there at all. I was able to see and change Autosync settings on my previous phones through settings. No idea what I'm doing wrong here.
The easiest way is just to put a widget on one of your homescreens. There's a default widget called "Toggle: Power control" that will give you the option to turn sync on and off with a tap, and there are several others that you can find in the Play Store.
I use a data toggle to save battery. If I don't need data for a while, I just turn off. However sometimes I need it on. When I have it on, Autosync doesn't work. I get FB updates sometimes but I never ever get email or anything unless I refresh manually.
I just want to be able to toggle data on and off, but when it's on, I want Autosync on. Background data is on in the settings, but I don't know how to turn on Autosync. I'll try that power widget that was mentioned.
