Default Gmail Contact sync errors....

I have two Gmail accounts that will NOT sync the contacts for some reason. Both boxes are checked in the settings under account settings. Everything else sync's perfect - any help would be appreciated.

Is this happen on wifi and cellular?

Do you have sync errors in the accounts and sync option under phone settings?

How is your Gmail account setup on the computer? Do you use the two step passphrase option on those accounts?

And you have had this phone for a while. Did this just start happening or has it always been happening since day one?

I have the same problem. Everything syncs EXCEPT contacts, it ALWAYS says there was an error and it will be back again shortly. If I add a contact from Gmail through a browser and then sync it always shows up on my Android device, but NEVER the other way around. This problem has happened with the stock ROM and 5 custom ROMs. App Data, Browser, Calendar, Drive, People details all sync without error, but Contacts Always says "Sync is currently experiencing problems, it will be back shortly."

Not sure if you guys have solved your problem, but I have a suggestion. I had this issue, too and ran into this solution, which worked for me. Basically, stop the sync and remove the account from your phone. Then, log into that account online and go to your google account settings/dashboard. Under your account's Security section, go to the bottom to Connected Applications and Sites and click "review permissions." Then, revoke access granted to all of the android login services that show up. At this point, reboot your phone, add the account back to your phone and sync it up, then see what happens. This worked for me instantly, though it does take a few minutes to get all your contacts re-synced.

I can't say for sure, but removing all the different access points may ause you to have to re-login or re-grant access to other devices, such as chrome or a tablet, etc. I have't seen issues, but I dont have a tablet and chrome is one of the 2 or 3 browsers i use regularly, so i didnt notice anything there. Really, it's meant to help pull clean permissions from older android devices.

Good luck.
