    I get the same message Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly. with a red exclamation mark. This is only on contacts and it has been for two days now.

    this has been going on since day two of having the phone .. it seems to be sync'ing the contacts just fine .. minus one little glitch .. it's not sync'd with the photos for some people .. the error will NOT go away and certain contacts are still without a photo .. yet some others sync the photo no problem

    It has been over four days with the same error. I tried all the above and it did not work. T-Mobile told me that it is a known error and except a factory reset, there is not current fix. Oh, they also do not guarantee that it will work

    I've been having the same issue for about a week now. I suspect that an OTA update will fix this.

    I am having the same problem and I am going to try taking the battery and the sim card out to fix it.

    exactly the same here, its trying but says error message, not synced for 3 days now....

  • Anonymous Nov 25, 2008

    I synced it first day I got it. Ever since then I've turned off my contacts sync. Today I tried to sync, and it hasn't worked. I tried doing it via 2G only, since I heard TMobile has 3G issues. Also doesn't work. Might need to go to wifi connection.

    My phone is having the same issue... Hopefully the removal of the battery and SIM card will fix it.

  • lucidrem Feb 20, 2009

    I had this problem since I first got it. Something happened to the data on the phone I guess. I just wiped the phone and started from scratch and it hasn't happened since.

I had the same problem and resolved it next way. First backed up all my contacts on G1 with myBackup, then deleted all my contacts on Google from laptop. Autosync all the time was on, so all contacts was deleted from my G1 also. After that I restarted the phone, and restored my contacts with myBackup. When my G1 tried to sync it asked me what to do, because it have too many items to delete (from "All contacts" category on Google). I've chose "delete". You may try other choice. After few minutes I've had exact all my contacts from G1 on Google no less, no more, and no sync error. Remember: just in case, backup all your contacts on G1 or Google before deleting them, to prevent them from beeing lost!! Good luck.

Wipe the phone. This will take all contacts off the G1. Go thru the whole process of entering your login info again and the contacts will sync from Google. That did it for me.

I had the same problem and it lasted for saveral days until I took the battery and sim card out and reinstalled them. It then came back up sync.
That solved it for me.

What this means is Google is probably updating their sync / Gmail somewhere dwn the line. not a major problem, give it an hour or so and it should be Ok !

You will most likely have to reinstall Palm Desktop because either a Shared Library is always in use or it's missing. A reinstall should help.

I have HTC Mogul Model # TITA100. I am not able


Do you have any of the pictures stored as contact pictures? Sometimes this will block you from deleting them, if you have a memory card try just moving them to the memory card and then deleting them from there. Sometimes an alternate file browser will override the access denied. I apologize for not having one off hand, try www.download.com
find your device or at least a windows mobile program.
Goodluck!

My TX crashes every time I try to hot sync


You could delete that app if you want, however I would go into hotsync config and sync only one section at a time, such as Notes, but not contacts or calendar (or anything else). If it works then add a section, such as contacts. Keep adding sections until it malfunctions. Pimlico software makes a product dbfixit ($) that can fix database (blob errors). You can download and install it, and it will report on (but not fix) any errors it finds.

Disconnect the device from the PC.

Open the "Menu".
Click "Options"
Uncheck "E-mail" from Data you want to Sync.
Click "Done"

Cannot hoysync with outlook 2003


After installing, reinstalling, deleting, hard resets, hitting head against wall... I tried installing the Pocket Mirror conduit as a last ditch effort. An error message popped up saying it could not find the mapi32.dll file. I looked at another PC, located that file in the windows32 directory, copied it to my PC, and I was able to hotsync with Outlook. To test this, I uninstalled the Pocket Mirror and Palm desktop SW, then deleted the mapi32.dll. Installed the Palm 4.1.4 sw, outlook 101 update, plus the conduit update, had same error messages. Added the mapi32.dll to the windows32 directory - was able to successfully sync with Outlook!

Problems with installing Active Sync on Windows xp.


Do you use companion CD for Active sync installation? Can you please tell me which driver is necessary to have? Is there any error message and what is content of this message? It can also be that Active Sync is already installed! Please check at Add and remove Software in Control panel! Otherwise go to www.microsoft.com and download a current version of active sync
