    Lately, on my Huawei P20 Pro, I've been getting these incredibly annoying "Contacts Sync is running" notifications... I'm guessing since the latest OS update as the problem has occured lately, that is to EMUI if so... But not for entirely sure when exactly it started...

    I've googled and googled, and looking at search suggestions, i appear not to be the only one with this problem, however, I can't seem to find any solution to the problem... It is fine that Contacts is syncing with my other accounts regularly, but I don't want a notification about it, ever. I'm getting this multiple times a day, so it's really, really annoying. It also makes my phone vibrate every time too.. ugh..

    Under Settings -> Notifications, the Contacts app doesn't show up, so it's impossible to tweak it this way, apparently... In Contacts -> Settings, i can't seem to find any notification settings either... Settings -> Apps -> Apps -> Contacts -> -> Notifications: Un-checked "Allow notifications": Still getting them.

    Welcome to Android Central! When you see that notification, swipe down the notification panel and long-press it. Do you get options to modify that particular notification?

    I have this same, really annoying issue. With some other apps the new version does the same, there should be a switch on the battery page of the settings => applications => particular app for switching off those notifications, but for this there is no such thing. For the contacts app you can get to the settings by clicking the notification when it arrives. It does not remain on notification center, so you have to be fast.

    Any luck on getting rid of those? I would sure wan't some advice.

    I managed to do it! Simply wait for a notification to pop up, tap on it, and choose FORCE STOP.
    It is considered an application, but I tried a number of ways to find it in the options, and I couldn't.
