Not syncing with Gmail contacts
Sync w/Gmail ok
Does your edit imply that you found a solution to your issue? I ask because ever since the Gingerbread update my Calendar refuses to 2way sync. It only syncs added events and not deleted ones.
Mine is doing the same thing. My contacts are also completely gone from the gmail web site as well.
No, I have not a found a solution. Called Sprint and they weren't very helpful either. They wanted to do a RESET (lose all kind's of stuff on EVO). I said no. I sent an email to HTC.- still waiting for response. If anything come back, I'll let you know here.
BTW: My calendar syncs - no problem,,,just my contacts fail.
Spoke to soon: My calendar (from Mac to phone) will add/sync new events and won't sync/delete events I've deleted on phone
That really sucks. Maybe I should backup contacts .csv
On Gmail, when you first open it, click on contacts ---> more actions ---> restore contacts ---> You have the option to restore all the way back to 30 days ago.
Also, are all google options selected to sync? I have 3. Menu ---> Settings ---> Accounts & Sync ---> under "Manage Accounts" I have one that says Google with my gmail address. Click on it ---> Make sure Sync Contacts, Gmail, and Calendar all have a check mark.
You can then click Sync Now and watch as each one sync's. (after doing this I notice that the time is updated but a sync icon stays next to my calendar). The icon stays there even if I sync the calendar first, the only way it disappears is if I uncheck the box next to Calendar.
Thank you for you input. I have done what you asked several times-still no syncing
HTC returned my email and basically asked the same thing and still no sync
I returned there email and I'll see what happens next
I had the same issue with my calendar not syncing & force closing.
but found the solution here...actually very simple.
Try the easy one's suggestions first where you clear out data & cache.
make sure you calendar is up to date in your web account.
