    I just discovered this same issue. I tried the suggested fix but my gmail sync was already enabled. I'm wondering if anyone has any additional suggestions for this issue? I seem to be able to get everything else to sync but the Samsung account still won't sync. I recently broke my phone and had it replaced but can't access my s notes from my old phone until my Samsung account is synced.

    I just tried this solution and it worked like a charm. Thanks CPSLOMATT for your suggestion. I would have never figured it out without you. Thanks!!!!

    I have the Samsung galaxy note 8 and had the same problem. Here is what fixed it for me:

    Settings > Data Usage > tap menu soft key > select "Auto sync data" from pop up menu.

    Now go back to settings> accounts and sync has been re-enabled. Hope this helps.

    go to settings, then "data usage" then press the small touch sensitive button left side of home button. This will bring up a new gui. select the "auto sync data" button. Simples..... This will then allow auto sync to work for emails

    Thanks! Who would have thunk going to an email setting would handle all sync options. For as smart as a lot of guys are at Google, has NO one every used these devices in' real life'? Guess they are so buried in nerd that they have no clue about the real world!

    Nothing wrong with nerds, I've been an IT nerd most of my life!

    Thanks!

    Thank you thank you thank you. I could kiss you. I was having this issue and it was stopping me from doing a much needed factory reset on my note 8. Your little trick solved my problem and now I can sync my s notes!

    After trying to sync my Samsung account with my phone to no success... As it showed disabled with no option to enable, I accidentally discovered that all you have to do is enable location on phone. I never had to do that with other phones but unfortunately I do with this one. I usually leave location off to save battery so I was dumbfounded to discover that disabling location will disable sync for Samsung. It won't disable for any other accounts but my Samsung and Facebook... However, when I put on location, it does nothing for Facebook. I still can't get Facebook sync. Can someone help me with that?
