    Resetting your phone means turning it off and turning it back on, just like a reboot on a PC and this does need to be done from time to time. I think you mean you don't want to do a factory reset.

    You can try just resetting or if that doesn't work do a full battery pull for 60 seconds. It could be just that the Market is busy.

    Have you tried it on WIFI to see if there is a signal related issue? I have downloaded 2 items today with no issues.

    Not sure there is anything SYNC related to Market until you look at the Downloads tab. Like I stated earlier, I have hit the market several times today without any issues.

    Tried the battery pull. didnt work! i think Sync does have something to do with market because i truned it off, went to the market and immediatly it told me i need to turn it back on. still displaying error in syncing contacts. so frusterating!!

    Did you check your password on Google recently?

    I have had log in problems in the past with Google, and changed my password. It causes problems with the phone because so many of the services are linked to the Google account.

    Usually I will get a notification on my phone that it had log in issues and one click there allows me to change my password.
