    It means you are constantly synching.......the only way I've seen to fix this is to factory reset/wipe data.

    What version gingerbread? Some show a constant sync in the task bar but they are not always connecting and I expect it will be addressed in the official release when (IF?) it comes down the pike.

    Either way bouchigo's advise is good as I've just finished playing around with Gingerbread and SBF'd back to OTA today in anticipation of the official Gingerbread release.

    I Hadthe same problem until about a half hour ago. I did a Factory reset and problem solved! Thanks to the help I received here.

    You can also freeze BlurContactsSync.apk with Titanium Backup to get rid of the constant sync icon.

    Problem is if you don't have root titanium backup doesn't work. I have the same problem and hate the idea of setting everything up all over again..

    Same here.

    I had the same problem some months ago when I did a restore of system data with Titanium (so the forum diagnosed). At the time, the icon indicated something in the OS kept trying to talk to the net. The problem was when I used the Nighttime battery profile and it shut down background data, the OS never stopped trying to get on the net (looked at logs to diagnose that one). With a full charge at 8:00pm, I would have 15 - 20% by 5:00am.

    My point is, while this may not be the same cause as the syncing icon after GB update, the icon may be more than just an annoying icon. As painful as it is, I'm glad I did a reset last night and got it done with. Already today my battery seems to be doing better (though I have no hard data to support that).
