    I am running into the same problem, everyone of my accounts except for background assistant has been syncing all day. Doesn't matter if I turn off the phone and then turn back on. I have an htc 8x on Verizon. Gmail and Outlook will occasionally stop syncing but the second that I try to open my linked email app, the app crashes and then the accounts go right back to syncing. What is causing this????

    So you factory reset the phone and that fixed the problem? Because I can't even receive text messages on addition to email...I don't really want to go through setting up my phone all over again if I can help it.

    I've had a similar issue that only fixed itself with a factory reset.

    Confirmed, it was Skype causing the problem, I uninstalled it and everything started syncing again.
    The problem is when your MS account doesn't sync a bunch of other stuff gets bugged (People hub, Messaging hub, and the Me hub) All got bugged and started crashing.
    Also Skype doesn't work properly when in the background anyway, a decent fix is needed for it.

    Just to confirm that I had the same thing on my Windows Phone 8. Today my Microsoft account got stuck and multiple things (people, photos) stopped working correctly. Restarting the phone didn't help, but uninstalling Skype and restarting the phone did. Even after installing Skype again, everything continued to work. Still I hope we will get a new version of Skype soon. Currently it simply has too many annoying issues to make it truly useful.

    also, make sure that you do not have your Microsoft account linked to your Skype account. I know that there is an option to merge your MS account with your skype account on the PC version of Skype. I did this a few days ago, then noticed my texts were buggy and my accounts were stuck syncing. after un-merging my skype and MS accounts via the computer, all problems were fixed. I had uninstalled skype on my WP as well
