    I posted this in the All Things Root forum as well, but I don;t think it is a root issue so I am going to post it here too...

    After the Verizon Froyo update screwed up my phone, I downgraded, rooted and installed the Virtuous v2.6 ROM. Phone works great now except for one thing and I am not sure if it is a google contacts problem or because I rooted the phone.

    My GTalk doesn't work right. I can send messages and the other person will receive them but I cannot receive any messages.

    I have removed contacts and reinvited them and have had my friends do the same. I can get the invite OK but no messages. I can't figure it out.

    I thought it might have something to do with my contacts. After rooting and installing the custom ROM, I accidentally deleted my user info/backup on my SD card so I had to reinstall all my apps and data, which is OK with me.

    I did an HTC Sync with my Outlook and imported all my contacts. I then tried to sync with Gmail contacts but the contacts would not sync. I got a red ! and an error that says "Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly". I can sync Gmail and the Google Calendar fine.

    since I wasn't able to sync my Gmail contacts, I went to Gmail and deleted ALL my contacts there and I still couldnt sync. BUT- I did notice that all my GTalk contacts disappeared except for a few... So I deleted them as well and exported my contacts from Outlook to a CVS file and imported them to Gmail. The GTalk contacts did not reappear.

    On my phone, only a few GTalk contacts were there but I couldn't talk to them.

    I really don't think it is the root and ROM but I don't know. Can anyone help please?

    I have a HTC Incredible
