Just like it says in the Title i got a new phone and added my existing gmail account that i know is backed up already because I have been there and done that 10 times already.(hence why I got a replacement phone...well part of the ROGERS story) Anyways nothing synced, downloaded, nada, zip, zilch!

Any ideas..?
