I have gone through many posts on various forums, but was unable to find any solution for this problem of syncing my contacts with my Google account. There were various advice like flashing the device and again restoring, deleting the account etc.
After trying for a few hours, i finally managed to find a fix for this error. If you are facing the same sync error “Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly.“, just try these simple steps:
1. Check and rename any contact which may have an Emoji emoticon in the name.
2. Open your Contacts and tap on the Groups tab.
3. Scroll down to the groups for Google and check for any group which you have not created or a group which does not exist in your Gmail contacts. Delete this group.
Please note that deleting the group will not delete any of your contacts.
4. Now go back to Accounts and Sync / Accounts in Settings and try syncing your Google account again.
Voila! SYNC is successful!
