Google contacts don't sync since upgrade to 2.1

2010-12-02, 16:06 PM

My Google contacts haven't been syncing for almost a month with no visible indication!  Calendar and Gmail have been syncing fine but Contacts haven't synced since 11/05 (when I upgraded to 2.1).  Seems related.

Triggering a sync spins the activity wheel for a few seconds on the data and synchronization menu under the Google account, but then it stops spinning and remains on the screen.  The date never updates.  Turning sync off and then on doesn't help, and Google now has hooks into other parts of the phone so that the Google account can't be deleted without doing a factory reset!

It seems like Google contact sync has inherent problems - I had a similar problem back in 1.5 that required a factory reset to fix.  It's a shame since sync is such a vital part of smartphones.

Any ideas short of doing a factory reset?

I can't think of any solutions other than a reset, unless you have some app that is interfering.

Update.  I did some experiments and it seems that it is syncing some changes but not all (however the last sync date doesn't change).  No clue as to what gets sync'd and what doesn't.
