    So, Address Book allows for sharing contacts via MobileMe. This is great and all...but is there any way to limit which contacts are shared (such as sharing only a certain group while not sharing another)?

    I have a lot of contacts, and it would be nice to share only the personal groups (friends, et cetera) with a select few people. Currently the options seem to be all-or-none. I somehow doubt that my friends would like a thousand or so random contacts pushed to their phones...

    MobileMe is intended for your use or 5 under one roof with a family pack...

    Thank you for the less-than-useful response?

    Useful. At any rate, it seems I'll just have to hope for this feature to be added in a future release...at present, it seems Address Book sharing is limited to all-or-none.

    I think his point is that MobileMe is not intended for you to share your data with others, but to sync it with all of your devices. As such, Apple is unlikely to ever give you this feature.
