OK, great, so you don't have the ICS bug on this.
Does your notifications include a constant syncing icon (circle, two arrows chasing themselves)?
If so, main settings, accounts, turn off auto syncing. Actually, let's do that in any case.
Hold down power for 10 seconds to force hardware reset (won't affect your data).
After phone is back on, wait 5 minutes and then go back and turn auto syncing back on.
Btw - are you using Facebook contacts?
It's been a while, if the above steps don't work and you're using Facebook contacts, I'll have to go back and look up those steps.
Anyway, please start with the above.
