    Well, in your screenshot you don't have a great WiFi signal, but I suppose it should work.
    Have you tried the same thing using the mobile data connection?
    Perhaps you could try unchecking most of the items in the list and then see if the sync is successful; if it is, re-enable one at a time until you identify the problem child.

    You may have a corrupted contact. Look for an app called Contacts Sync Fix in the Play Store. I had this issue and that app fixed it.

    If that doesn't fix it, removing and readdding your Google account should work but I would try the app first.

    Go to Settings, Accounts, Google. Click on the Google account, this takes you to the same screen you attached on your first post. Scroll to the bottom and there should be a Remove Account button.

    To readd the account, go to Settings, Accounts and add the Google account again.

    I provided other suggestions - did you try that? If you can determine which item is causing the sync problem, then depending on what it is we can suggest follow up steps.
    For example, if something is jacked up with your contacts, then you could try logging in via a web browser and looking at your contacts online to see if something is messed up.

    I don't understand what would be messed up... It was perfectly fine until a few days ago...

    there's no corrupt contacts or anything like that..this is so frustrating I cannot seem to narrow it down..and im not hard resetting my phone because i have too much important stuff on it..and of course Verizon is clueless..the usual..

    Default Re: Sync error really?

    Have you tried unchecking the Contacts item, and did the sync then proceeded normally or did it error out on a different item?
    If it proceeded normally then there's either a problem with the Contacts database online or on the phone, regardless of whether the contact information that you've looked at appears to be valid.
    Until you can provide some further information about where it's getting hung up in the sync process, it'll be difficult to assist you with troubleshooting.

    my contacts go away and then come back on and off..i tried unchecking an rechecking everything..the pic i provided above should specify my issue and it just keeps coming up with that error message...i go to uncheck the box and then check it off and it keeps coming up with that message....and how can i do a contact sync and then proceed with syncing if the box is unchecked?..how does that make sense?

    I think he meant for you to uncheck contacts to see if the rest of your Google accounts succesfully sync. When I had this issue, my corrupted contacts (3 of them) looked fine online so it was hard to troubleshoot. I know the Contacts Sync Fix app didnt work for you nor did deleting the and readdding the Google account.

    Have you tried removing the Google account AND clearing the data for the Contacts Storage app (Settings, Application Manager, All) ? This would ensure the phone contacts get truly wiped out. I would then restart the phone. Then readd the Google account.

    The only thing I can suggest is to use an alternate mechanism, like Verizon's Backup Assistant +, to backup your contacts, and then totally nuke the contacts information from your phone and then see if Google will restore them correctly. If it doesn't, then go online and nuke the contacts from the Google side, then use Backup Assistant + to restore them. Alternately, you could use something like:
    Easy Backup: http://market.android.com/details?id...pps.easybackup
    Helium: http://market.android.com/details?id...ikdutta.backup
    MyBackup Pro: http://market.android.com/details?id...id.MyBackupPro
    if you don't trust the Verizon application.

    I had the same issue on my Sprint Note 2. Turned out it was my calendar (with 3 Google accounts). When I unchecked calendar from each account, the sync would work fine; no more sync is down error.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled calendar and everything is back to normal.

    If you can elaborate on how Verizon solved the problem that may be helpful to someone who reads this thread in the future.

    That is bizarre. I've had the same issue. I just unchecked calendar sync, and contacts synced without error. Rechecked calendar, and it synced fine. Will see what happens with contacts moving forward.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Default Sync Error on my Razr

    I noticed last week that my Contacts haven't synced since December 9th. I get that same error, "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly." I have tried repeatedly at different times of the day, to no avail. The Verizon backup assistant is having no issues. (Although I'd love to know how to disable it.) My phone is a Droid Razr and the Android version is 4.1.2. I was going to try that "disabling Calendar sync" idea mentioned above, but it's not set up to sync. I'll keep looking. I've had this phone for two years and am still learning new things about it. Oh, I also tried that "Fix Contacts Sync" idea. It found 0 broken contacts. It shows a bunch of "Fake system group: My Contacts - xxxx", the Xs being the different email accounts I have. When I click on Send Log, it tells me there is "No useful error log found."

    *** Solved this on Experia M2 *** NB should work for pretty much any Android device

    After importing 187 contacts from an iphone VCF file "I got the dreaded sync is not working, please try again later"

    Installed Contacts Sync Fix and ran it
    - Helpfully it showed me there were broken contacts and which contacts group they were in
    - Unhelpfully it didnt actually tell me which ones were faulty
    - Helpfully it told me there were seven

    I then moved contacts to a different group 20 at a time (you could do 50 ata time or more if you have masses of contacts)
    After each move I re-ran Contacts Sync Fix until the failed contacts showed up in a different group
    This narrowed it down to 20
    Then moved them again 7 at a time

    This way I was able to identify the seven and delete them - hey presto contacts were then able to sync successfully

    Hope this helps someone else in the same situation

    Carlos' suggestion worked for me "Have you tried removing the Google account AND clearing the data for the Contacts Storage app (Settings, Application Manager, All) ?" - clearing the data was the bit I'd not tried before.
