    Yesterday I noticed that my iCal on my MBP wasn't showing the most recent events that I had added via my iPhone. I refreshed all, to which I was responded with a server error for the @me.com calendars.

    Then I checked MM to see if it had the most recent events, which it does not. But it DOES match the iCal on my MBP.

    Going back to my iPhone, for some reason, two events that I had changed details on via my iPhone were reverted back to the original details on my iPhone but changed and stayed on my MBP and MM. So it looks like they were working fine (I changed them some time last week) then stopped probably this weekend. What I don't understand is why my iPhone reverted the details back without changing them on the MM site and thus my iCal on my MBP.



    tl;dr - iPhone, MM, and MBP iCal syncing worked, then stopped, reverted some of my iPhone events back to different details, and now they won't update with the new events added via iPhone and I get a server error when refreshing calendars on my MBP.

    Any help or suggestions?

    I'm having the exact same problem. This happened couple weeks ago, but I haven't made any new additions to my calendars so not had to worry much about it. However, I just rebuilt my Mac, and I'm now unable to get any of my calendars synced from MobileMe to my Mac's iCal.

    I get the error shown in the attachment. Everything else MobileMe wise works fine.

    Well apparently on my iPhone, I had the Untitled Calendar checked, but none of the MobileMe calendars (even though I checked them when doing the rather annoying On my Mac->MM Calendar transfer with the new MM iCal). So now, all of my events for the main Calendar I use is under the Untitled, and not under the MM Calendars. Anyway to transfer without inputting them again, assuming that's the problem?

    After toying around with it some more, I went to all existing events and edited their Calendar type (previously checked under Untitled, now checked under MobileMe). Now I'm going to change the default Calendar input so this doesn't happen again.

    Syncing appears fine between MM, iCal on MBP and iPhone. So I believe all is well MobileMe-land.

    I'm not sure if we were having the same issue - but glad you got yours sorted.

    I managed to sort mine too: for some reason, iCal wasn't setup properly for my MobileMe account when it was all setup in the MobileMe preference in System Preferences. Basically, in iCal's preferences, under Accounts, my MobileMe password was empty. Strange, seeing as I thought it would have been all done automatically.

    Guess this only happened with the new MobileMe calendar upgrade that happened recently.

    All sorted now though.

    i am having a problem synching from my iMac to iPhone. Everything is going to mobileMe just fine, but when i place an event on my iMac using iCal it won't go to the iPhone. I do remember having to do something special on my iPad to synch the iCal, but I don't have the iPad any longer and Apple changed their website regarding how to set-up mobileMe, so the iPad info is the same as an iPhone
