I'm new to the forum but I hope someone can help me :0) I started getting this error "sync is currently experiencing problems. it will be back shortly" on my Samsung Note about 2 days ago. I've tried everything even the dreaded system reset. Ugggh any help would be great. Everything was working great and this just happened out of the blue. I'm stumped.
Is it only with the Twitter contacts sync? All my other accoutns sync properly--including non-contact stuff from Twitter. It's only the contact sync. In reading some other forum posts, looks like it's a wide spread Twitter for Android probably--not just on the Note.
Thank you for your response. I uninstalled Twitter and Facebook before I did my factory reset and I'm still having issues. 70% of my contacts have synced to my phone but not the rest and they also are not updating when I make changes.
Now all my calendar entries are not syncing. I know it's not my phone because I have another Droid X on Verizon and I'm having the same thing is happening.. Uggh. I'll probably get hate responses but thank god for my Iphone or I wouldn't have my contacts or calendar synced at all.
I know this is a little old, and I do not have the tablet, I have a samsung galaxy s2, but I thought I would share my experience with this error.
my particular error came from the contacts not syncing. Everything else would sync fine. It turns out that, so far to date, it was because I was adding phone numbers and contacts through a third party contact application. In this case, it was "go contacts".
when I added a contact through the native contacts application, everything would sync fine. As of today that is still holding true. so feel free to pass the info along to anyone who may be experiencing similar problem, perhaps this may be of help to them.
Recently I began using Google's 2-step verification security for my phone. I had no idea it was causing sync problems until I back tracked everything I did with my phone. So I turned of the 2-step verification and my Google Voice started syncing again.
