    Hi

    I am a long time lurker since I got the 2G iPhone and now have the 3G.
    I have been trying out Mobilme and like most have experienced several problems.

    One that has me baffled is that when I enter an appointment in the Mobilme site or in the iPhone it does not show (display) on my Outlook when in Day/Week/Month view. It is there, if I go to a list view or search for it - but will not display in the Day/Week/Month on the desktop.

    I have a laptop on Mobile me as well. If I enter the appointment in the laptop it then loads the appointment to the iPhone and tothe desktop where it will not show.

    I searched here and the web and found some users with similar problems (see link below). One suggestion is to turn off timezone support and make sure they appointments were not set to repeat. But nothing works.
    (Outlook running on XP on the desktop - Vista on the notebook)

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    This isn't limited to MobileMe. I sync my 3G to Outlook (locally, not via ActiveSync) and I also lose some appointments from the day/week/month view.

    It happens to events created on both sides, only work around seems to be making all events a repeating event (with one-off events repeating with the same start and end date).

    Come On Apple - please fix this...as a business user this is a critical bug (and my 4 year old Palm Pilot had a better Calendar application, by the way).

    Thank you! I've searched quite thoroughly and this is the closest I've found to other users suffering the same issue.

    Someone please shed light...this is not good.

    Important events are not showing up in day / week / month view and I sit behind this computer all day. I have to see my appointments.

    Just FYI: I use iCal on home Mac, Iphone 1st gen, and Outlook 2007 on windows vista machine. Generally, the problem occurs when I enter info into Ical, not when I enter into Iphone.

    Unfortunately, I've been having the same problems.

    Vista, iTunes 7.7, iPhone 3G with 5A345.

    All appointments on Outlook sync fine to the phone, but appointments made on the phone do NOT show up in Outlook in the month view.

    I have also had another problem: when i modified one of my contact's phone number, the contact card in Outlook was messed up when I checked it later on. The person's picture was deleted, and their email address wouldn't show up in my address book when composing a message. I removed the picture from Outlook completely, and now it's working fine. Strange thing though is that the picture remains on my phone!?

    These bugs, along with the lag in SMS/contacts, is starting to get annoying. I really hope Apple fixes this soon. Perhaps this is a problem with 5A345? Maybe just me trying to find scapegoats :D
