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

I read the other post that is similar to this  but thought I would post anyway. I bought my wife the 3G iPhone and we tried (many many) times to Sync it to her pretty new iMac running OS 10.4.11. It brings up iTunes, starts Syncing but gets stuck on Calendars and that's it. It just shows that it is trying to Sync but will run all night that way.

    Thank you. I'll give it a shot when I get home this evening. 

  • Hayduke Jul 15, 2008

    Where are the Sync settings? The phone or the computer. I'm on a G4 running OS 10.4.11 at work and can't find any sync settings in the system preferences. 


    Sorry to be such a knuckle-Head

I just solved this for myself, make sure there is no sneaky "do you want to sync iphone with contacts" window that is behind all your other windows.

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.

    The sync settings are in the iphone/ipod profile section of itunes. There should be tabs for each section, like music, videos, calendar, contacts, photos, etc. and you want to make sure nothing is set to sync with outlook calendar.

  • upirons Jul 15, 2008

    Keep in mind, you will only see the sync settings when the iphone/ipod is connected to itunes. And since yours is hanging, you may have to abort the first sync attempt since it will try to sync as soon as you plug it into your mac. Just stop that first sync and then adjust the settings and try to resync.

IPad How to transfer or sync content to your computer


iTunes, iBooks, and App Store content


By default, iTunes Store, iBookstore, and App Store content on your device will automatically transfer to your computer. If it doesn't, you can use the Transfer Purchases option in iTunes to ensure that all iTunes Store, iBookstore, and App Store content is transferred to your iTunes library. Learn about transferring purchased content.

Photos

You can import photos or videos into your computer that you have saved on your iPad (for example, in Mail or Safari, or when using the iPad Camera Connection Kit).

Contacts, Calendars, Bookmarks, and Notes

You can sync contacts, calendars, bookmarks, and notes with applications on your computer across multiple computers and devices. You can find the sync settings for these in iTunes on your computer. With your iPad connected to the computer, select your iPad (under Devices). Then click the Info tab.

How to set up my iphone


here are useful tips for your iphone set up.


Please read the Activating and Setting Up Manual Instructions below -
What You Need - To use iPhone, you need:
• A new wireless service plan with the carrier that provides iPhone service in your area
• A Mac or a PC with a USB 2.0 port and one of the following operating systems:
• Mac OS X version10.4.10 or later
• Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later
• Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate edition
• Display resolution on your computer set to 1024 x 768 or higher
• iTunes 7.5 or later, available at www.apple.com/itunes
• An iTunes Store account (a major credit card is required to open a new account) â An Internet connection
Activating iPhone
Before you can use any of iPhone's features, you must activate iPhone by signing up for a service plan with the iPhone service carrier in your area and registering iPhone with the network. If you already have a wireless account with the carrier, you may be able to upgrade your account to work with iPhone, or keep using your old phone and add a new line for iPhone. (Some accounts may not be upgradeable.) You may also be able to transfer your current phone number to iPhone, or get a new one.
For more information about iPhone, including videos about how to activate and use it, go to:www.apple.com/iphone
Inserting the iPhone SIM Card
In some regions, you may need to purchase the SIM card separately and insert it into iPhone before activation. Read the documentation that comes with the SIM card for instructions.
If your carrier gave you a PIN number to use with your SIM, you may need to enter the PIN before activating iPhone.
Activate iPhone
1 Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
2 Connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the dock and cable that
came with iPhone. Unless your keyboard has a high-powered USB 2.0 port, you must connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.
3 Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to activate iPhone and sync iPhone with
your contacts, calendars, email accounts, and bookmarks on your computer. A single checkmark in "Set Up Your iPhone" syncs all these items automatically. Or you can use iTunes to customize the information you sync, and to sync your ringtones, music, photos, podcasts, and videos to iPhone. See the following section.
You can disconnect iPhone from your computer after "Waiting for activation" appears on the iPhone screen. When activation is complete, "iPhone is activated" appears on the iPhone screen. This means that iPhone is fully functional and you can use all of its features.
Important: If you are migrating your current phone number to iPhone, activation may take from several hours to a day and migration of your number may take several days, depending on your location and previous carrier.
Syncing iPhone with Your Computer
When you connect iPhone to your computer, iTunes syncs iPhone with the information and media on your computer, according to how you've configured the iPhone sync settings in iTunes.
You can set iTunes to sync any or all of the following:
• Contacts - names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and so on
• Calendars - appointments and events
• Email account settings
• Webpage bookmarks
• Ringtones
• Music and audiobooks
• Photos
• Podcasts
• Videos
Ringtones, music, audiobooks, podcasts, and video content are synced from your iTunes library. If you don't already have content in iTunes, the iTunes Store (available in some countries) makes it easy to purchase or subscribe to content and download it to iTunes. You can also add music to your iTunes library from your CDs. To learn about iTunes and the iTunes Store, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Contacts, calendars, webpage bookmarks, and photos are synced from applications on your computer, as described below. Contacts and calendars are synced both ways between your computer and iPhone. New entries or changes you make on iPhone are synced to your computer, and vice versa. Webpage bookmarks are also synced both ways.
Email account settings are only synced from your computer's email application to iPhone. This allows you to customize your email accounts on iPhone without affecting email account settings on your computer.

Download palm phone directory to apple to apple i phone contacts


My wife and I just bought an iPhone and wanted to transfer our contacts from our Samsung i500 Palm phone. All the instructions I found online suggested going through Outlook, but that didn't work for me for a variety of reasons. I found this other method that worked really well.
  1. Bring up Palm Desktop. Make sure your Palm phone is sync'ed up. Show the Address page, select all contacts (Ctrl-A), and export them with File, Export vCard... This puts all contact information into a single file as a sequence of vCards.
  2. Bring up Windows Address Book. You can find this in Start, All Program, Accessories, Address Book.
  3. Using Windows Explorer, drag the vCard file you created in step 1 to the Windows Address Book window. I had never used Windows Address Book, so it was empty. If yours isn't empty, you'll have to decide whether you want to merge your contacts.
  4. When you drop the file, you'll get a window asking you to confirm the first contact. Press OK. Another window will come up for the second contact. Press OK until all windows are gone. It's easiest to hold down the Enter key.
  5. Bring up iTunes with your iPhone plugged in. Go to your iPhone page, to the Info tab, and configure it to sync from Windows Address Book. Click Apply in the lower-right corner of the window.
  6. Sync your iPhone. Verify that your contacts transferred over.
  7. Tell iTunes to stop sync'ing with Windows Address Book, since you probably only wanted a one-way sync. Your contacts will be backed up anyway by iTunes, so the Address Book sync feature doesn't buy you much.


OR





Sync your palm to outlook, then sync your outlook to your iPhone. It'll grab the outlook contacts and calendar.

Can't sync outlook 2003 calendars with iPhone 3g


Synchronization of iPhone 3G with your Outlook 2003 will depend on the type of account that you would like to create. It will depend also on the Web mail that you are going to download.

Example:
1. The e-mail that you would like to download to your iPhone is your Gmail account. You have to enable POP in your Gmail sesttings.

2. On your iPhone > go to Home screen > tap settings...

3. Go to Mail > Add Account > Other > Continue...

4. For the host name: pop.gmail.com

5. For the username: type your complete e-mail address

6. For the Outgoing mail SMTP Host name: type smtp.gmail.com

7. Tap Save..

8. To verify your Advance configuration: Go to settings > click the account that you havve created > Advance


Incoming server port:
-You may use 110 or 993
-Type your password

Outgoing settings:
- You may use 25, 2525, 587 or 465
- Type your password again.

You're done.

NOTE: I just use Gmail as an example. Your incoming mail server will depend on your Web mail settings.. You may contact your e-mail administrator and ask for the Incoming mail server, Outgoing mail SMTP, ask if your account requires encryption or not.

How do I synch outlook 2003 with iphone


You didn't say whether you're trying to sync everything (mail, calendars, contacts) or just some things or one thing (like contacts only). I don't know if you're using an Exchange server or even if you have the info you'll need to sync with an Exchange server.

I have a Windows mobile device (AT&T Tilt) running Outlook 2007 and everything is sync'd. We also started purchasing the iphone for our employees and sync their email, calendar and contacts to their phone.

I could probably give you step-by-step information (based on how I do this for my users at work) if I knew whether you'll use iTunes to do this or Exchange Active Sync and what you want to sync between your phone and outlook. One method (iTunes) will only update your data between Otulook and the phone when you connect it to the computer with Outlook configured on it but, the way we do it at work, they receive email, data, changes, etc in real time.

Try using this link http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/mail/

What you will find here is support topics and instructions for Exchange Active Sync, setting up email accounts, troubleshooting for contact and calendar syncing.

You can also search support on Apple's Web site. Entering the keywords: iphone outlook 2003 will bring up a lot of support info.

You can use iTunes or MobileMe for synchronization. If using iTunes then try this:

You can configure which items are synchronized during a one time set up process. After initial set up, each time you connect the iphone to your computer, the changes made on your computer or device are synchronized.

  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer. iTunes should open automatically.
  2. In iTunes, in the source list, under Devices, click the entry for your iPhone.
  3. Click the Info tab.
  4. Select which items you would like to sync. For example to sync only calendars, under Calendars, you would click Sync calendars from, and then click Outlook.
  5. Do one of the following:
  • To synch all calendars, click All Calendars.
  • To limit the calendars that are synched, click Selected calendars and then click the calendars you want to sync.
6. Click Apply.

Hope this helps!
