    Here's the deal:

    * Syncing with MobileMe allows live pushing and it copies the calendar colors correctly, but you can't select WHICH calendar. You get them all.

    * Syncing over the USB cable allows calendar selection, but it's not wireless and the colors are messed up.

    I suspect these are design bugs that will eventually be fixed, so you'll just have to wait it out. UNLESS, you want to do this workaround:

    Basically, you make an online Google calendar, and sync that to iCal. It will show up in iCal, but it WON'T sync to the iPhone. So make a Google calendar, put it in iCal, and use that as your home calendar. It won't show up in the iPhone.

    This is a silly workaround until Apple fixes the problems, but hey, it works.

    I take it that ical is mac only? I'd love to be able to use my google calendar as my iphone calendar aside from doing it in safari. I guess I can set up my outlook :(
