    I have signed up to mobile me and had it for a few days now and have the following problems:

    1)iCal events take a very long time to go from the mac to the iphone, they do go to fast but for some reason ALL my appointments have the time changed. For example i have a 1.30pm appointment on wednseday, on under calender it shows at 5.30am. I treid to change it back but once i logged out and back in it changed to 2am. Anyone else experienced this?

    2)Contacts take hours (5-6) to sync.

    3)Mail often does not get pushed for hours.

    4)Sometimes i get a message saying an email i have sent could not be sent because (something like that) was not responding.

    So far everything mobile me is meant to do is not working for me.

    Sometimes an email will push the iphone in 2 minutes, sometimes it takes 5 hours.

    Is anyone else still having the problems above??

    I thought this was all meant to have been sorted out by now.

    Does anyone know, if i cancel my mobile me account, will my contacts and ical still sync when i connect the iphone to itunes? Because right now it jut says your cal,contacts and so on are being synced over the air with mobile me.

    UPDATE: i deleted my mobile me account on the iphone and re-entered all my details and it synced everything right away. This is the second time i have had to do this. Anytime info stops coming through form mobile me i have to delete the account and add it again. This is a joke of a service right now and how they can sell the product in stores is beyond me.

    How has your experience been lately?

    Make sure that both devices are set in the same time zone.

    I've been using mobile me since day one. Yes it had some teething issues when it first came out, but has been very reliable for me. Contacts/Cals/Emails stay in synch across several devices (2 macs and an iphone). Could it be your network connections?

    I don't think that network connections would alter the data, in this case, the time of an event. If it was a network connection issue, I think it would just be slow to deliver the data, not alter it.

    I too have been using Mobile Me from day one and, now that it is mostly fixed,
    I am very happy with the service.

    On the iphone in Settings-> Mail, Contacts, Calendars

    Scroll to the bottom and make sure your "time zone support" is set correctly. If I remember, mine was set to Pacific when I first bought my phone. Apple assumes everyone lives in California :rolleyes:
