    I have 65 contacts in my phone and only 53 are showing on my .Me accounts contacts.

    I went through Apples site and reviewed how my phone and .me account is setup and everything seems to be in order as it was syncing and updating before !!!.....

    I am also facing similar problems. I had my me account set up on tiger [.mac] and I got my iPhone on 20th june I also upgraded my me account with that. Since then me is not updating any contacts in my address book while iPhone and me are working in sync together. Could anyone please let me know what might be the issue?

    Highly thanks in advance.

    I forgot about this...

    I found the issue !!!

    I had my address set as .mac and not .me and at somepoint after they converted it stopped syncing using the extension .mac.

    I deleted my account on my phone and then re-added it with the .me extension instead. Down side is I lost the contacts I had added during the time they stopped .mac from updating.

    It now works as it did before.. fast and flawless

    you could continue to use .mac address. you just have to make sure that when you register MM on your iPhone, your email address has to be in all lower case.

    For me, I refuse to use the stupid name .me so it has to be myname@mac.com. If you have it MyName@mac.com, then it wont sync.
