Droid 2 Corporate Sync Push Quit Working

Tags: Droid

AndroidSo I still love my Droid 2. I waited and waited for the iPhone to come to Verizon but it never did so I got the Droid 2 the day it came out. I love the Droid and not that Verizon has the iPhone4... it doesn't matter.

On thing I have to have on my phone is exchange integration. The Droid 2 "Corporate Sync" account has worked great for that. It syncs my exchange email, calendar items and contacts. With the exception of not being able to sync the exchange contact photos, it has been pretty much perfect.

Not long ago, I noticed that it stopped receiving email. It has been setup as "Push" from day #1 and I never had a problem. Coincidentally, we had some scheduled maintenance done to our exchange server right around the same time that push stopped working. There were some MS updates that came along with it and I just assumed it was the cause. I waited a while to see if anyone else at work complained but no one did.

The only way I could receive email was by going into the account and hitting the sync icon. That is obviously unacceptable… not to mention, very annoying. I tried Google and all I found were a ton of people having the same problem. I also found that most people had the same issue start around the same time that mine started.

Since no one had a reason or solution for the problem, I started playing around with my phone's settings. First, I deleted my corporate sync account and recreated. As expected, that didn't help. After digging around the settings, I finally found the issue. Apparently, an update (or maybe just a bug with battery management) had changed the battery mode to "Nighttime Saver". When the battery mode is set to "Nighttime Saver", no automatic data syncing features work. Once I changed the battery mode to "Performance Mode", the email started pouring in again!

So, for all of you with this issue out there (who haven't solved it by now), go into your Settings » Battery Manager » Battery Mode and make sure your phone isn't stuck on "Nighttime Saver".
