Thank you for all your help!

I have a question

1. I started using ical and it is not syncing with my iphone? Should I be creating events on the calendar in mobile me instead? Just easier to do it on desktop so would like to know can I just enter it there and have it sync to mobile me and iphone? as it is not syncing at all right now. any suggestions?


MobileMe should be syncing these automatically. Having a new computer and iPhone 4, you are very likely on the most current or close to most current versions of software so that’s not it. A couple of things to consider and check:

Be sure that in MobileMe preferences you DO NOT have calendar syncing turned on.
Be sure you’ve upgraded your calendar at Log in and in the bottom left corner there would be a box saying “upgrade”. You have most likely already done this. After upgrading the calendar via the web at, quit iCal then reopen iCal and the new method should automatically appear. You’ll want to delete the old calendar in iCal and only use the calendars listed under as seen below:

If these are not listed under then you’ve not fully upgraded to Apple’s new method called CalDAV. Let me know if that helps at all. I can also take a look on Town Hall Monday evenings.
