    Won't sync google contacts. help!

    I do not know whats going on. I've never had issues with any roms before not being able to sync up my contacts. When i click on phone>Contacts>Menu>Display Options> then I see My email and next to my email it says "Unsyncd". If I press and hold my email, nothing happens, If i just click on my email, another sub catagory comes up as "all contacts". How do i get this to sync up? My actual emails are synced up just fine. My contacts are the only thing that is messed up with this rom.

    Whats going on? any ideas?


    Thanks

    I noticed that yesterday when I went to make a call. All my contacts were gone., Here is what I did and it fixed it. Go into settings > accounts & sync > your gmail account > make sure all is checked. Mine were not. Once I checked the mail and contacts all my stuff synced without a problem.

    I dont have anything to check really.

    I went int o Accounts & Sync like you said. Then it says..

    ~General Sync settings:
    Background data: CHECKED
    Auto Sync: CHECKED
    ~Manage Account:
    Jm......@gmail.com: Synced Symbol.
    .................................................. ..................


    Now if I click on my email...

    ~Data & Synchronization:
    Sync Gmail: CHECKED







    ..................


    Thats all it says. It doesn't say Contacts anywhere.

    Open your contacts, tap menu, tap accounts, make sure auto-sync is checked, look at your Gmail account to see if sync is on. If not, tap and a new window will allow you to synce contacts, gmail, Picsa, and calendar.

    Hope this helps.

    When you tap on your Gmail account a new window does not open?

    EDIT

    yes... I did settings> acoutns & Sync> Click on my Gmail> and then new window opens up. The only thing in this new window is Sync Gmail.... and it is already checked. No option for contacts. If I hit menu, all it says is "sync now" which I have tried and nothing new happens.

    Ok Mine has this:

    Open your contacts
    Tap menu
    Tap accounts
    Make sure Auto sync is checked
    Under Manage accounts your Gmail account will be listed
    tap on the Gmail account
    A new window will open that says data & synchronization
    Under that it will say
    Sync Contacts
    Sync Gmail
    Sync Picasa Web Albums
    Sync Calendar

    And these are the steps you followed and the four Sync lines do not show?

    My roommate had this happen when i flashed his phone...then he checked his gmail and his contacts and calander settings were gone from there as well...hence no sync....not sure why or how it happend but it sucked pretty bad. If I were you I'd double check your gmail contacts on the account your phone is regged to
    Of all the things I've lost,I miss my mind the most.

    I went to Gmail on my computer and all my contacts are on the computer. I just did a Factory reset and still nothing. I'm just going to reflash the phone. hopefully it'll work. This rom is too good to not work. sucks it messed up the most important part of the phone .
