    Default Google Contacts sync down?

    Any one else getting "sync is currently experiencing problems. it will be back shortly" today?
    been trying to get some contacts to sync from gmail to my phone for2 hours now.

    I know most of us had this problem on launch day, I have not had this happen since then..

    and yes I did a restart already

    Just checked contact sync and it's been working for me. Synced yesterday. Manually synced today to test. All ok.

    I added a new phone number to one of my contacts yesterday morning... I checked my device yesterday afternoon and it was updated... I also manually ran sync from my device and it ran for the full account, including calendar and contacts without an issue in about a minute.

    what have I done, lol.


    shortly might mean 12+ hours by the way (thats how shortly its been down for me)

    at least your contacts are all synced.. mine started halfway during a contact sync so im missing half my people. I try to redo my contacts so they are all linked to google and see what happens!

    Have you tried logging out of that Google account completely... deleting it... then adding it back in?

    told me to call google for support on the google contacts syncing.. makes sense.

    they gave me a round about way to get them to sync by emailing a v card from gmail to my phone.. but come on.

    Google that error. It's been around for years, and there is no fix. Google won't even acknowledge it.
