I had removed the updates to Google music since I don't use it. This was a month ago. I also have a lot of contacts...in excess of 2,400. Last night I could not sync google nor facebook. I pulled the battery, rebooted et cetera. Syncing was consuming my cpu too. I cleared caches and then went for data - FB only. Still no help. A little voice pipped in - reinstall the google music updates. Voila - it all syncs now...as it used to. Is there some tie to that app? Oh, while I am asking questions - anyone know why when I export my contact list from google in googles format, the file is chinese characters that I do not understand? The vcard was "normal" when exporting for Outlook and an Apple vcard was fine as well, but if I choose the google format, the resulting file is 為什麼面對這 .vcf? Edit - nevermind - my first contact on the contacts list is in Chinese.
