Hey guys.....this may be a dumb question but is there a way to control how often the phone will auto-sync on the droid razr?

What on the phone that is auto-syncing that you would like to control? Email, contacts, Facebook?

Thanks for the quick response Joelbon. Those would be the types of things I would like to control especially the email and facebook stuff. Do you know if there is a way to control these?

I won't be able to fully answer your questions, but for Gmail you can go to Menu>Settings>Accounts>Your Gmail account and then de-select the Sync Gmail. That should take care of your Gmail account.

For the other Email accounts it might be easiest to set them up in a 3rd party Email app like K-9 Mail. You will have much more control over how your accounts are handled. You can customize your settings just the way you want to. I have to admit that it has been so long since I have had an Email account set up in the default Email app that I don't know if there is a way to stop sync or not. I prefer K-9 Mail that much over the default system.

I don't use Facebook on my phone, but if you have your account set up through the default Facebook account than you could remove your account from the phone and set up the Facebook app from the Market. This would stop the sync of Facebook and Blur. The only time that you will get updates this way is if you open the Facebook app.

Remember that if you remove your Facebook account from the default Facebook app that you will not have the Blur integration. Blur widgets that are designed to give you Facebook notifications and updates won't work anymore. This will give you more control of when the phone does it's syncing though. Hope this helps.

To control email sync, you can go to Email settings (from within the Email app, hit Menu, then Settings), then Email delivery.  You can set your account to sync in real time  ("Push") if the server allows for it, or choose to sync every 15 min, hour, etc.
