Ive had my droid for a couple months, and this problem just started in the last few days. My droid has been showing the sync icon nonstop for the past few days, and with it my battery life has plummeted. When I drop down the notification bar, it doesn't show anything, and when I go to menu-settings-about phone-battery use. it lists the main culprit as "android system" with 59%. the included packages are
Google Backup transport
Account and Sync Settings
Anybody have any ideas what is happening. Also I have turned the phone off and on, but still get the sync icon.
