Syncing Contacts with Google kaput
OK, I've been ALL over the internet and this forum trying to figure this out.
My contacts will no longer sync with my Google account. Calendar sync works fine.
When trying to sync contacts, I get an error saying, "sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly." But, it won't be, apparently. My last successful sync was September 24th (of this year).
I can find complaints about this issue going from 2010 to present day. NOBODY seems to know the answer.
Well.. there's one answer, but I'm not sure I want to do it (yet). It suggests going into the Applications Manager and clearing the data in Contacts Storage. My concern (which is not addressed in any of the instances of this particular advice) is what this actually does. Does it erase all the contacts in my GS3? If so, then when I re-sync from my Google account, I will have permanently lost any contacts I entered directly into my phone since the last successful sync?
Please help! Thanks!
