When I restart my Eris, it starts synching. The synch can go on for up to 48 hours. Not kidding! Since this means the phone can't sleep, my battery life is reduced to maybe two hours and the phone gets hot. I use a Mobile Network on/off switch to save battery power. The Auto-Sync option under Settings is deselected, so it isn't any of my Gmail accounts, calendar, or native Facebook app. The last time I let the synch finish (by charging the phone at every opportunity), my phone lost all the names of contacts that weren't filed under "Google Contact". The numbers remained however. This could easily be a coincidence as well as an issue for another thread. Has anybody had a similar experience and solved the problem? This Eris doesn't have a lot of apps on it and I've checked settings on just about everything to find the source. Besides, what app could take up to two days to sync data?
