    Is anyone having issues right now with syncing their samsung account? Within the Samsung account syncing settings, when I go to check/select Calendar, Contracts and Internet, the status wheel keeps spinning. And then the spinning stops with a small red exclamation mark, and on the bottom in small text, it says "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly." Thanks

    Still on ICS Android. I know the JB OTA update for is occurring for GT-N8013 today. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

    Thanks. I just unchecked all three boxes and rechecked them again(for the 4-5th time) and this time then are now checked with no red exclamation mark. Looks like it's working now.

    Don't know. I'm thinking that Samsung is busy with the JB OTA update. Just an un-educated guess.

    i found the issue - i had downloaded Google Calendar a while back and just deleted it, keeping just the stock one. seems sync was looking for the downloaded one. i reinstalled it and the stock calendar is syncing again.

    i also downloaded the Google calendar, it also did not work. Removed it, removed all data from Samsung's calendar and tried again, still no luck. This is a requirement for how I am using the Note 10.1 and II. If it won't sink to the Google calendar on the PC it is useless.
