not Pushing new Calendar and Contact entries.

Guys and Gals, I'm having some major issues with Mobileme.

The main and most concerning issue is that Mobileme has deleted some contacts on my iPhone. But the contact remains on my desktop!

Also, Mobileme seems to have stopped Pushing. So if I add a calendar or contact entry on my iPhone it won't show on my desk top and vice versa.

Judging by the look of things on here many are having the Push problem. BUT has anyone had ME delete Contacts?

Thanks

Mine working as expected. You did not say if you were on the Calendar Beta and when you say Desktop do you mean Windows or Mac. Anyway, you should be looking at MobileMe on the Web at http://www.me.com. That is what everything Sync's with (i.e. the Master Copy). Check if your Contacts are there. If not, they will be removed from your devices.

Hi Mike, sorry. I'm using a Mac and iCal.

The problem is that when I add something to my iPhone it doesn't get Pushed to my Mac. And when I add something to my Mac it doesn't get Pushed to my iPhone.

Are you using the MobileMe Calendar Beta? Just to be clear, when you add something to your phone it does not get pushed directly to your Mac. It first must be pushed to MobileMe. To determine the problem you should first make sure your event is being pushed to MobileMe. You do this at http://www.me.com/calendar. The same is true for putting events on your Mac. It first much be pushed to MobileMe. After being pushed to MobileMe then all other devices Syncing with MobileMe should be updated. This is not "instant". I just tested and it took maybe 30-60 seconds. Also, I had to REFRESH my Browser to see the update on MobileMe (I think it sometimes auto updates the screen).
