    A few days ago my Eris stopped syncing with gmail contacts. It tries but never completes. Can you say battery drain? Calendar and gmail are working fine except for one email from my brother. That email is only visible from the web, not in the Gmail app.

    Too weird.

    When I have sync issues I usually try to clear cache and uncheck the item not syncing. Usually helps.

    It got so annoying that I unchecked sync contacts. That is not an acceptable solution. I will try cache clearing.

    Still no luck. Maybe I haven't found the right cache to clear. Back in the Q days it was caused by a stuck message in the outbox. I don't see that here.

    A factory reset is the obvious solution but I really don't want to go there.

    Hmmm... xtrRom 4 with Launcher Pro Plus.

    Delete all the "data", not just the cache. It automatically resyncs.

    From the same place you clear the cache, Settings > Applications > Manage Applications.

    The GMail application. Wipe all data from there, not just the cache. It will resync all your contacts (as they are backed up in the Google "cloud")
