Sync icon always showing, Android 2.3.3

Hi,

 

I've had to go back to my Xperia X10 (on stock 2.3.3) for a little while as my Z1 Compact is not working properly and been sent away.

 

I wiped the X10 with a factory reset, but one thing bugging me is the sync icon is always showing, and I think this is wearing the battery down. What could be causing this?

Is it that icon that looks like a recycling symbol in yellow and black... like the men at work road signs?

Its syncing the Gmail app and contacts.

I'll try and get a screenshot uploaded soon. 

 

It's the sync arrows whic look like a recycling symbol a bit, yeah.

 

I go into the sync screen in Settings and there always seems to be something next to the Google calendar and contacts entries. I click the menu button and "cancel sync" but it starts again soon after and just stays up there. I can't see why it would have to be syncing constantly? Surely once it's downloaded calendar entries, contacts etc, then that should be done?

 

This phone seems unbelievably slow, and I know it is ancient but I never remember it being so sluggish. Is there anything I can do to get it a bit more responsive? It is a major chore just to write a message on it. I've tried some custom JellyBean ROMs but they are just totally unstable and sluggish.
