I've had my EVO since the release date and have been able to sync my email, calendar and contacts from my Gmail account with no problems since day one. But yesterday I noticed that my phone had the sync symbol in the notification banner all day and burning up my battery. I finally isolated it to my Gmail contact sync failing and constantly trying to sync. The error message is " Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly." This problem has been going on for 12 hours now and I can't find anything that would explain why the smyc failure is occurring. I've looked for a setting that may account for the problem on both the phone and my Gmail account and have found nothing. Any ideas on what the problem is or what actions to take to fix it? Now I have to manually sync the account and cancel sync when it starts looping on the contacts sync! Thanks for any ideas!
