    Question Error During Contacts Sync--Gmail Contacts

    Went through my contacts and deleted duplicates, and not needed contacts. Manually did a sync, other items like calendar, chrome, Gmail all synced. Contacts did not. Tried other accounts, everything synced. Went back to my main Gmail account, still did not sync without the error sign.

    Message at the bottom of the screen stated, "Sync is currently experiencing a problems. It will be back shortly."

    I did reboot the phone. I guess there is nothing to do from the other end, meaning the PC.

    Has anyone run into this? I have never seen this, before.

    on edit--ran across this--http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2012/12/winter-cleaning.html

    Last January, we renewed our resolution to focus on creating beautiful, useful products that improve millions of people’s lives every day. To make the most impact, we need to make some difficult decisions. So as 2012 comes to an end, here are some additional products, features and services we’re closing:

    • On January 4, 2013, we’ll be shutting down several less popular Google Calendar features. You’ll be unable to create new reservable times on your Calendar through Appointment slots, but existing Appointment slots will continue working for one year. In addition, we’ll discontinue two Calendar Labs—Smart Rescheduler (we recommend Find a time view or Suggested times as alternatives) and Add gadget by URL. Finally, Check your calendar via sms and Create event via sms (GVENT)—U.S.-only features for creating and checking meetings by texting information to Google—will be discontinued today, as most users prefer mobile Calendar apps.
    • Google Sync was designed to allow access to Google Mail, Calendar and Contacts via the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync® protocol. With the recent launch of CardDAV, Google now offers similar access via IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV, making it possible to build a seamless sync experience using open protocols. Starting January 30, 2013, consumers won't be able to set up new devices using Google Sync; however, existing Google Sync connections will continue to function. Google Sync will continue to be fully supported for Google Apps for Business, Government and Education. Users of those products are unaffected by this announcement.
    • In addition to Google Sync, we’re discontinuing Google Calendar Sync on December 14, 2012 and Google Sync for Nokia S60 on January 30, 2013. We’re also ending service for SyncML, a contacts sync service used by a small number of older mobile devices on January 30, 2013.
    • The Issue Tracker Data API allows client applications to view and update issues on Project Hosting on Google Code in the form of Google Data API feeds. We’ll shut down the Issue Tracker API on June 14, 2013.
    • Punchd is an app that keeps loyalty punch cards on your smartphone. On June 7, 2013, we will discontinue the Punchd Android and iOS apps, and merchants will no longer honor Punchd loyalty cards. Users can continue to earn punches and redeem rewards at participating businesses until June 7, 2013. We remained focused on developing products that help merchants and shoppers connect in new and useful ways.



    Thanks for any help.

    After thinking of how I might take the backed up file from my PC and importing it, I first tried to delete the account from my phone and add it back and let sync run. That worked fine.

    So, the problem is fixed, but wanted to leave the post up so someone may know how or explain how to sync calendar and gmail (contacts) after the mid-January changes take effect.
    Thanks
