Anyone have any insight on this? The other day my wife dragged me to see that horrible vampire movie, you know the one where he sparkles. Ugh. Anyway, we went straight from the house and I had just taken my phone off the charger. When we left the movie, my battery was almost dead and I noticed the sync icon was on the top of the phone and would not go away. I went crazy trying to find the offending app, and finally found that it was my gmail contacts. In the "sync" section of the settings, I noticed one of my gmail accounts was trying to sync over and over. it would initiate sync, have a problem, initiate sync again. I unchecked the contact sync for that account and have not had the problem since. My issue, obviously, is that now I can't sync my contacts with that account. I have restarted the phone, but have not done a hard reset yet, with no luck. Has anyone else encountered similar issues, or heard of this happening? And of course, I am blaming my wife for the whole mess - I never should have gone to that horrible, horrible movie.
