Hi guys, I hope someone can help me with this issue. I already installed Google Play services and basically all Google apps via Play Store.

My issue is with Google Contacts as it seems the phone will not let me sync. My existing contacts do not appear due to sync issue.

If I go to Settings > Google Contacts Sync > then enable Automatically Sync, once I press back button, the phone will disable sync.

I already did the "usual" troubleshooting steps like restart your phone, kill the app and whatnot but this issue still persists.

Anybody knows how to fix this issue?
TIA.

The contacts sync option is available but the phone keeps "disabling" everytime I enable contacts sync (check my screenshot).

I'm kinda frustrated that I want to reset my phone and start from scratch just in case Google Play services got messed up.

YOU ARE A LIFESAVER! Thanks! It really fixed my sync contacts issue! GApps suite works perfectly now and I feel my phone is now completely... complete!

Also, I don't need to install Google Contacts since the default China ROM "Contacts" app does its job synching all my Google contacts already.
