Tip: Android contacts not synchronising?

I had this problem yesterday, luckily the answer was easy to Google even if I’m still not sure what caused it.
If you’re contacts are not sync’ing with GMail then the first thing to do is go to:
*Accounts and Sync.
If there is a problem you will see a message at the bottom and the sync in question will have a red circle instead of green.
To solve I had to go back to the Settings menu and:
*Select Applications
*Manage Applications
*Wait for the apps to load up and select Contacts and Storage
*Press the Clear data button
Note, this will not delete your contacts in Gmail, only the locally held ones on your phone.
This method will probably work with a lot of the sync accounts, find the app in question and delete it’s cache.
