Sync is currently experiencing problems. it will be back shortly.

Unable to Sync Contacts on Droid.  Get the following error "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly."  That was 10 days ago.  Have tried the "soft" (battery out) boot as well as the *228 thing.  Still get error message.

Hi,
 
Had a search around and found a solution that worked for me (p.s. posted by someone else in another forum)
 
Go to "Settings".  Select "Applications".
Select "Manage Applications".
Scroll down to "Contacts Storage"
Click on "Clear Data"
 
Go back to to "Settings" again and in "Data Synchronization"
resync by pressing "Synchronize Now"
 
Good Luck

I tried this but you failed to say that if you do this ALL YOUR CONTACTS WILL BE LOST. Most new contacts I had were in my phone NOT on gmail contacts - so I lost valuable data. Thanks for trying to help - but a range of uers look for answers online. Some app savvy, some not. Guess I had to lose my contacts to find I was not android app savvy.

Really sorry my post caused you to lose your contacts.
 
You're right I should have pointed out that this solution deletes the contacts on the phone and forces "sync" to download the contacts from the web app onto the phone.
 
Anyone else trying should make sure they manually (if necessary) create or update the contacts on the web app before continuing.
 
Sorry again.
 
Regards

I ran into this problem first time this morning. went through the forum and considered. I use a Galaxy S. Someone said about downloading an app. I went to android market and had to sign in oddly enough. When I signed in. All syncing started up again. This is a very happy ending for me, BEFORE I deleted contacts and calendar data. thanks for all your input on this. It helps to work together
