I'm sure many of you are facing the same problem that I faced right after the Jelly Bean or Android 4.1.1 update on your brand new Android Phone. Sync just doesn't work. You try everything you can to eable Sync and get push notification working. Some of us even remove the account and add it back again. What do you do when the Sync option is not working on your Android Phone or Tablet.
Heard of people who forgot to plug in the printer, trying to take a print out thinking that there is something wrong with the computer? Well, the Sync issue is something like that. It is not a bug or functionality issue.
When your phone is updated to Jelly Bean, the sync is automatically turned off. All that you need to do when sync is disabled on your Android Phone after Jelly Bean or 4.1.1 Android update is to go to your notification bar. Pull down the notification bar, swipe to the end of the function icon list and click on sync icon. Yes, I am talking about the same place where you go on your notification bar to enable wifi, gps etc. Once you enable sync from the notification bar, the application settings will change to sync from the internet.
