    Pleaaasse Help! I lost all my iphone contacts after I deleted my mobile me account from my iphone. The 60 days trial has ended, i thought i will delete it from my iphone and not subscribe it but the worst thing happened after i deleted it. it had erased all my contacts and the calendar events! Is there any way to retrieve it?

    If on Mac too you would have a copy in address book and ical too. Never tried on windows but I believe it syncs with those apps as well.

    under info tab in itunes is it still set to sync with mobileme?

    If so uncheck.

    Also when you open up address book and ical do you see your information there on mac?

    maybe. i think they'd save you data.

    What you should have done was sync them into Address Book (same with iCal), then clicked File > Export and saved the database. Then deleted your mobileme account. Then Imported the files you just exported.

    Good news in the future though, the 3.1 beta doesn't erase anything off the phone if you delete/turn off mobileme sync.
