Does anyone sync to Yahoo services???
I don't know where this question fits, so here goes.
I've always had difficulty cleanly syncing with Yahoo services (Mail, Contacts, etc.) with my Android phones. Currently using a Razr Maxx on stock ICS.
I had the best luck using Maildroid Pro as the Mail app (the Yahoo app had been horrible - although I know they recently updated). Push notifications work great with Maildroid and the interface is pretty good. Scrolling is excellent, plus no ads.
I had the best luck syncing Contacts using the CardDAV protocol and CardDAV Free Beta from the Play store. This gave me two-way sync, whereas the Yahoo Mail app would only sync to the phone and not back. What's the point of one-way sync when you add and modify a lot of contacts right from your phone?
Recently, I've lost the ability to sync contacts (past two weeks or so). CardDAV is reporting errors that the app developer indicates are issues with the Yahoo server. I tried re-installing the Yahoo Mail app just to sync the contacts and it's not bringing anything over (the sync window actually reports an vague error about the system not responding). When I look online, I seem to be finding a few recent reports of others not getting their contacts synced either. Having tried to set up the CardDAV account again, my phone contacts were deleted and I'm running blind at the moment until I can get the sync fixed.
I've tried contacting Yahoo for support, but the responses have been comical at best. Their support associates do nothing but direct me to help pages that say to install the Yahoo Mail app. Or to set up the CardDAV protocol like I've already done.
Other than switching providers (conveniently Yahoo charges you to forward mail and I'm pretty locked to my current address), any suggestions?
