Syncing with Google contacts fails


AC Question

When I sync my phone with Google the sync contacts fail and there is a message that states "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly" but it never is. This only occurs when syncing contacts.

Do you have any contacts with 'weird' characters like smileys or the likes? Also, try un-checking Contacts and re-checking it in the Sync list.
