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:
http://www.nhoj.co.uk/applescripts/

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.

When I sync the outlook calendar to my iphone, one of two things happens. 1. If I put an all day event in outlook, it syncs to the iphone a day earlier (both otlook & iphone are on same date &...


Make sure time-zone is the same for both iPhone and the computer.

On iPhone setting > Mail,Contacts,Calendars setting > Time Zone Support, make sure you are choosing the city where you are in.

Otherwise, make sure you have updated the iTunes to 7.5 or later.

Update to iTunes 7.5 or later to resolve this issue. If you're not able to update, continue reading for other options to resolve the issue.
Each Outlook calendar event has an internal property known as "Message Class." When some Outlook plug-ins are installed (such as Live Search Maps), the setting for the Message Class property can change from its default of "IPM.Appointment" to something else. iPhone and iPod touch are only able sync calendar events with the Message Class set to "IPM.Appointment," therefore any calendar events created after installing certain Outlook plugins may no longer sync.
To verify this, examine the property of the Calendar event items for MS Outlook and see if the Message Class shows something other than "IPM.Appointment" in any of the calendar events. To view the Message Class property for your Outlook Calendar events, add the Message Class field as one of the columns in the Current View using these steps:
  1. Open Outlook Calendar on the computer.
  2. Choose View > Current View > Events.
  3. For Windows Vista, choose View > Current View > Customize Current View.
    For Windows XP, choose View > Arrange By > Current View > Customize Current View.
  4. Click the Fields button and choose All Appointment fields from the pop-up menu in the "Select available fields from" section.
  5. In the "Available Fields" column, select "Message Class" and click the Add button.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click OK.
Now verify that all your calendar events are showing "IPM.Appointment" for the Message Class column. If you have calendar events showing a different value other than "IPM.Appointment" you will need to perform the following steps to fix the issue.
  1. Uninstall any Outlook plugins such as Live Search Maps or other plugins which change the default Message Class "IPM.Appointment" to some other value. Once the plugins have been removed, verify if those calendar events revert back to the Message Class of "IPM.Appointment" so that you can sync the calendar data to iPhone/iPod touch. If you are able to sync, try adding the plugins back one at a time and verify that you are still able to sync.
  2. If removing the Outlook plugins does not change the Message Class value for the calendar events, manually change the Message Class value of those calendar events to "IPM.Appointment." For more information on Message Class and how to change the Message Class fields/value, refer to Microsoft's KB article 201087 How to update existing items in an Outlook folder to use a new custom form
Good luck!

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.
