    Lightbulb Phone Data Not Syncing

    So I ran into a bit of a qualm, my Phone Data is not syncing properly and is causing a ton of CPU wakelocks from Google+, over 9,000 wakelocks in a 5m period. The last time the people app successfully synced was 12/25 and I tried to remedy the issue by wiping data for google play services. This did nothing to help the sync problem. I am going to go over my disabled app list and check to see if anything is interfering, but I doubt that it would have an effect because I haven't disabled anything new since a month of so after I got the phone in August last year. Has anybody else ran into this issue and/or can help with the resolution. I greatly appreciate your insights.

    If Google+ is giving the wakelocks, I think I'd wipe data on that app and see if that helps.

    As long as you have no contacts that aren't synced, try wiping data for contacts storage (you'll find it in the all tab in settings / apps.) If you then start having sync issues with calendars, it would be calendar storage. If you keep having issues after that, it might be time to try a factory data reset...

    I don't use G+, so just a SWAG: Have you changed your password (or has someone else - can you access your account across devices)? Have you added or dropped 2-factor authentication?

    Is your Wi-Fi working OK? Do you have data on your chrome browser?

    How's your mobile data signal? If you have lousy signal, it might be causing problems with the sync.

    You could try completely removing your Google account, then adding it back again.

    WiFi working perfect. Data good on Chrome, however, on Google's main page at the bottom it says location cannot be determined. All my location settings are checked. I read on Google's help section to clear cache for Chrome and restart the browser, this usually works for a few hours, then back to location not being used when I search for nearby shops, restaurants, etc.

    Data signal is strong 4G. Interestingly enough, this sync problem only started occurring on 12/25/13, I can't think of anything that I have disabled or changed since then to cause the issue. I'm debating adding and removing my Google account, or syncing everything over to my other added account and mix and match syncs from the both to have a complete phone again, haha.

    Thanks for your replies guys, sorry I haven't been checking up on this regularly lately.

    Yes, everything is checked under regular location settings and google. WiFi and mobile networks as well. It happens with WiFi on and off.
