So I broke down and went to update my firmware from 1.1.4 to 2.1.1 ... the update seems to have gone okay, except that when I try to sync my phone it gets stuck on "syncing contacts". I left it overnight (for 10 hours!) and it said the same thing this morning.

If I eject it the phone seems to work okay, but it won't download any of my App Store purchases because I guess that happens after the contacts are synced.

How do I fix this?

    I'd suggest uncheck syncing contacts and see if it has the same issue. Your profile doesn't say windows or mac but I'd probably suggest export all your contacts/calendars/bookmarks and reset sync services
    windows > itunes > edit > preferences > devices > reset sync history
    mac > isync > preferences > reset sync history
