    Hi all,

    I don't know if this is still relevant to any of you but I'd been having the same problem and this thread was the closest to the specific issue I was having. It's been a frustrating few days but I saw something on another forum that worked immediately, and I thought I'd pass it along here in case it helps. After trying everything, the thing that worked for me was:

    1. Go to your Google account permissions and disallow Microsoft. This will temporarily break the account connection.
    2. On your problem device (mine was my phone but my desktop app hasn't had any problems), delete your Google account.
    3. Go back to Google and enable 2-step authentication.
    4. Go back to the malfunctioning device and recreate the Google account connection. You'll be prompted with a 2-step auth process, but at the end you'll re-establish the connection between MS and Google, and ALL your contacts should begin to sync.

    I really hope this works for you, as I have been just as frustrated for about four days.
    Thank you so much, nothing else worked but this one. Much appreciated.

    Solved for me with Creators update

    Installing the Creators Update fixed it for me.
    I hoped there was an easier fix. I didn't want to rely on upgrades to fix a simple problem as this.

    (I say "simple" because this shouldn't really have to occur at all.)
