    UGH! I have this exact problem.

    @thebourbonnflip did you do the factory reset? Did it help?
    I have done multiple shutdowns and battery pulls, went back to Factory Home (left Home++) No improvement.

    @cereal killer Thanks for the link, guess I will be reading up on your link.

    Check your accounts and see what Account/Application is stuck syncing. It is normally my contacts that get stuck and the following steps have fixed it for me in the past.

    1. Open Settings
    2. Manage Applications
    3. Menu - Filter - All
    4. Open Contacts
    5. Clear Data
    6. Open Contacts Storage
    7. Clear Data
    8. Reboot your phone and wait for the contacts to get pulled down again.

    I assume you could do the same thing with Calendar or Gmail as well.

    Thanks for the instructions: if this works, it will beat the heck outta 'Factory Reset' !

    I am such a rookie.... Where/How can I find what is stuck?

    Go to

    1. Settings
    2. Accounts & Sync
    3. Go into each of your accounts and look for a green sync icon next to one of the items (Sync Contacts, Sync Gmail, Sync Calendar)
    4. The one that is syncing is the one you want to clear out.
    Your data should all come back down after clearing and rebooting.

    Ugh, Nothing shows to be 'stuck', problem still exists. Looks like it's back to the Factory Default option! OUCH !~

    I was having the same issue with contact sync getting stuck. I tried clearing out the cache for that app and restarting the phone. Then I cleared out all the caches/data for all three google apps. Every time I'd get one google app to sync, another would get stuck. I was at the point of doing a hard reset but decided as a last ditch effort to do a soft reset (CTRL-ALT-DEL). It worked! It's now been a week and I haven't had sync lock up anymore. I am a newbie but thought I'd share in case this helps anyone else.
