Google sync issues - anyone else?
My brother got a Nexus 5 from T-mobile today. All his contacts on HTC Sensation are synced to Google appear so on both phone and through a web browser. I was helping him set it up this evening and everything seemed fine - had him sign into Google yada yada yada. When he went into his contacts it was empty, same with his Gmail emails. He has 200+ contacts an quite a few emails in his inbox so I thought this was strange.
I checked the Google account under settings and said everything had synced just fine with no errors. Found this to be odd so I wiped data and cache on both Gmail app and Google Contacts Sync app. Rebooted phone, nothing. Wiped dalvik cache, nothing. Removed and readded Gmail account, nothing. Factory reset, nothing.
Basically tried everything I know to no avail. It's odd that it is saying that it is synced when it indeed it is not - there isn't even an error message.
Anyone else having issues with this? Find this very very strange and there is hardly ever a phone issue that I can't solve and I'm stumped. Now I did manage to just export contacts to storage on Sensation and then copy the .vsf file to computer and then copied it to Nexus 5 and imported so he has his contacts but still no emails.
Considering just flashing CM11 onto it and seeing if that does it but don't want to go through all that if I don't have to - my brother is basic user anyway, he wouldn't even know what's going on if I were to flash CM11.
Just seeing if anyone else has issues like this. Ant suggestions would be great.
