I have Samsung Galaxy S Duos and had a issue of calendar sync. While trying to clear data, I mistakenly force-stopped the Google Calendar Sync app. Now, the calendar sync is not working. It gives an error: Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly.

How do I start the Google Calendar Sync app again?

Have you tried restarting your phone, and starting the sync again? – geffchang Jan 31 '13 at 7:14

Download and install the Google Calendar from the Market.

i already had the Google calendar app installed earlier. i uninstall and re installed the Google calendar app but the same error pops up.. :( – Rifky Jan 31 '13 at 7:33
@Rifky After you uninstall, and re-install it, make sure you clear the data before you start the sync. Settings > Applications > All > Calendar (or calendar storage) > Clear data. – geffchang Jan 31 '13 at 7:36
:-( no success. still the same error when trying to sync in Settings->Account and Sync. no calenders are listed in Google calendar app. – Rifky Jan 31 '13 at 7:51
now it started syncing. we need to clear the cache before we re install the google calendar app. – Rifky Jan 31 '13 at 9:47
i uninstalled the Google Calendar app first, then cleared data. then it started working. after that i installed Google Calnedar app and that's also syncing fine. :-) – Rifky Feb 1 '13 at 6:00
