    Is anyone else finding that new events created on the iPhone will no longer sync to your calendar in iCal after installing Leopard? I've tried different calendars to no avail...

    Followup -

    I had to do a full restore of my iPhone to get the calendar to sync correctly after installing Leopard. I still have problems when I check the "Do not sync events older than XX days" box. Leaving it unchecked works fine.

    iCal won't sync with iPhone after Leopard upgrade

    I experienced the same thing. I have not tried to reset the phone yet. I really don't want more than 60 days of previous entries taking up valuable space on my iPhone. I hope there is another fix.

    Do calendar entries actually take up any significant amount of space? A backup of my iCal from more than the last 2 years for all of my personal and work calendar entries along with DVD and movie releases, sports games, holidays, birthdays, etc. is only 19 MB.

    Me too ...

    Just noticed it. It updates my iPod Touch when I sync after adding an entry on the iPhone but nothing appears in iCal on the Mac!

    W E I R D! :mad:

    Success!

    I was creating an event on the iPhone and it was syncing to a calendar that I had ticked as don't show in iCal!

    Make sure you are syncing to a calendar which is enabled to show!! :D

    You do this on the info tab within iTunes when your iPhone is plugged in - ie. you can select the calendar the iPhone created entry will appear in on your computer.

    Man, I hope that makes sense! :cool:

    I just updated to 1.1.2 and that didn't solve it. I'm hoping that 10.5.1 will fix this issue.

    Okay, well 10.5.1 didn't help.

    However, thanks to a tip on the Apple discussion forums I found the answer.

    1. in iTunes>iPhone>Info Tab>Advanced: click Replace Information On This iPhone: Calendars
    2. sync

    Next time you enter an event on the iPhone it should sync back to iCal.

    The one obvious downside to this is that it will delete any entries you had entered directly on your iPhone that hadn't yet been synced to iCal. I only had 2 such events so it wasn't a big deal. If you have more this could be kind of a bummer. But after you do this the syncing issue should be resolved.
