    All of my contacts are listed on my phone as google contacts, but when I try to sync my contacts with gmail (using Settings>Accounts & sync >Google), I get an error message regarding contacts sync that reads:

    "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly"

    It's been seeing this for over a week now, any ideas why it's doing it and what I can do to try and fix it?

    Thanks for any advice!

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think your doing this backwards. The easiest way to add contacts to the phone is to log into Gmail and add them to the contacts. There is also an import feature that supports multiple file formats including .csv and others.

    I had the same issue. Go to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Running select Contacts Storage and Clear Data. Then try syncing.

    Thank you thank you thank you!

    I had previously tried clearing data from the people app with no luck, it looks like my google contacts are loading now after clearing 92mb from the Contacts Storage cache!
