    I have noticed that changes made to Google contacts online (via my PC) can take forever (12 hours or more) to sync to my Droid. Is there any way to set the frequency or timing of Google syncing contact into to the Droid??

    I posted earlier that I figured out how to force a sync from the Droid, but how can I control the sync timing from the Google cloud side?

    Should be pretty quick if you have auto sync set and have contacts checked in your settings.

    I started to respond to this post last night but something distracted me. By going to settings/accounts & sync/manage accounts (yourname@gmail.com) you can force your gmail to sync by turning sync off and then back on.

    OP has probably already figured this out but I thought I'd mention it just in case someone else has an issue.

    Yup Hook - I figured that one out this AM. But I was wondering why Google contact info changed via PC on the Google site takes 12 plus hours to get sync'd to my Droid.

    Any other thoughts on this??

    Do other Droid users experience a 12+ hour lag in Google pushing Contact info to the Droid?

    I click the sync tab once i'm in google and all my chages are made. Then I click the Andoid tab under mobil. It' takes about 3 minutes or so

    never had a delay with any sort of cloud to DROID sync. i've been really impressed with how quickly everything gets updated.

    After some weird behavior, the sync is working now - and it's fast. What was weird?

    - Contacts made on Droid were not showing on Droid or in Google on PC. Later, with no settings changed, the newest ones started to display on both Droid and PC. Initial ones? In the ether I guess!

    - Sometimes, contacts made on Droid show up twice in Google contacts on PC.

    - Sometimes, contacts made on Droid with pictures showed up with pictures - other times not.
