Upgraded yesterday from 2.3.4 to 4.0.4 and Exchange sync worked for one day. Today morning again can't get connection to server and thats it. So have to downgrade again back to 2.3.4, this atleast is working.

Re: Email 4.0.1 "Waiting for sync" on corporate Exchange/Activesync

Hi all,

Confirmed that Xperia Arc S and Ray have the same problem "Waiting for Sync" after upgrading to 4.0.4.

I have no choice but just stop and disable the Email and Exchange Client (thanks ICS), and then I install the third party Touchdown, it works perfectly.

Nothing much I can say but extremely disappointed on Sony. Are they tried any Exchange 2010 on their phone?

Just want to share my experience again, if the Exchange Server Policy of email message size is reset to unlimit, the Sony Active Sync is now working.

Hi Guys,

I am working for PHILIPS INDIA, BANGALORE. I am also facing same issue as given in forum. It hangs or keep rotating icon infinite times.

I am using third party Touch Smartphone and that is working well. Bug is there in sonay arc s email client.

My office is using Exchange 2010 . Sony engineers please check touch smartphone application and try to add some more missing authentication and functionality and that should fix this bug.

I have upated to android 4.0.4

Re: Email 4.0.1 "Waiting for sync" on corporate Exchange/Activesync

Hi all,

Just to share my recent experience. I upgraded my Xperia Arc S to 4.0.4 and I cleared all the app (Email app) data. Opened the Email app, and started from there insteaded of adding a new account from settings.

I added my Exchange account details, it took a bit of time (10-15 seconds) but now syncronization is working just fine with exchange server.

I don't know whether it is workable work arround or I'm just lucky!
