Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

Somehow, all of my iCal calendars have been duplicated!

I'm not exactly sure if this is because of my iPhone or because of Leopard, but I recently updated both at the same time, and now EVERY calendar I've got (and I've got quite a few) has been duplicated.

Is there an easy way to "re-sync" these? Clean them up in one step? Make sure that the most updated versions are retained?

I would use the "Delete iCal Duplicates" AppleScript here:

when you sync, be sure you use the "overwrite iPhone data with data from this computer" option, or your duplicates will come back to your system.

Calendars have disappeared


The likely cause of this problem is that you're synchronizing your iPhone Calendar with iCloud or another online calendar service and your iPhone is set to sync only recent events. This option can be found underMail, Contacts, Calendars in your iPhone Settings app. The default setting is one month, however you can tap on this option and choose from either two weeks, one month, three months or six months or simply choose All Events to sync everything in your calendar.

New events created in the iPhone Calendar outside of this time frame are still saved and synchronized to your online calendar (e.g. iCloud), but once the online calendar has been updated, they are removed from the local iPhone Calendar; hence these events appear to vanish shortly after you've created them. Items you have created on these older dates will actually have been saved in the cloud and you would likely be able to see them on a desktop computer; iCal for Mac, for example, automatically synchronizes all events from iCloud to your desktop calendar, regardless of the setting on your iPhone. Further, if you're using iCloud you can log onto iCloud.com from any web browser and you should see these events in your Calendar there as well. In fact, if you adjust the sync setting above to a longer time frame-or All Events-all of these "lost" events should automatically be synced back down from the cloud and reappear; you'll likely even see all of the instances of events that you tried to create multiple times.
Ultimately, unless you have a very large calendar going back several years, it's probably best to just set your sync events preference to All Events, which will ensure that your entire calendar is available on your device and avoid any future confusion with vanishing events.

Transfer contacts and calendar from Palm to iPhone and iCal


The best way is to transfer the Calendar and Contacts to Outlook. The iPhone can then be synced with Outlook.

Unfortunately, tasks and memos do not transfer. You will need to find other 3rd party apps that are supported on the iPhone and transfer your data to them.

Two examples are:

1. Evernote - This is good for memo. You can export your memos and then import them into Evernote. unfortunately, when I did this, it was a bit tricky. I even had to write a little PERL script to create the format that it wanted.

2. RemembertheMilk - this is a todo application

My blackberry curve shows duplicate calendar information


Hi Patrick,

There are few possibilities:

  • There are multiple compressed ICAL [CICAL] Service Records on the BlackBerry® smartphone.

  • BlackBerry smartphones use the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server and contain a BlackBerry Internet Service [CICAL] service book on the BlackBerry smartphone.

  • Calendar entries are created on the BlackBerry smartphone and these may not synchronize with the email client during wired synchronization.

  • So I need to know, are you using your Blackberrt deivce on a coporate BES server?

    Also, Check in your Device settings for the [Cical] duplicate service record. If you need to know how then let me know.

    I hope this helps,

    Thanks.

    OS 10.4.11 Won't Sync Calendars w/iPhone 3G


    Make sure that in the sync settings you don't have Outlook turned on or something. If that is on, and you don't actually have anything to sync in outlook (or don't even have it), then this can result in it sitting for a long time, if not forever. You might also try to check and make sure that a dialog didnt pop up and somehow get minimized to the dock or something as well. I had a similar issue with my ipod touch and all it ended up being was a stupid check box under the calendars sync settings.

    Sync Outlook 2000


    You can transfer your contact list, but not your calender. Here are the steps to take to successfully transfer your contact list from outlook 2000 to the iPhone:

    1. In Outlook, export your contact list as a Comma Separated Values (Windows) file
    2. In windows accessories, launch Address Book
    3. Import into Windows Address Book the file you created in step one
    4. Now back in iTunes, sync your iPhone contact list with Windows Address Book

    You contacts should come over intact.

    Sorry, but there is no solution that I know of to import Calendar events.
