    Just curious for those of you have multiple calendars. Does your ical calendar colors match the ones in your iPhone??

    Mine do not. I really do not want to change the colors in my iCal. I would like to match the iPhone up to the calendar colors in my iCal.

    Has anyone discovered how to do this?

    Thanks!

    mine didn't to start with... but that was before I fully activated push sync. I think the simplest thing is to reset the calendars on your iphone and then enable to mobileMe Sync which will push the right colours (colors) down!.

    I must be doing something wrong then. Sorry to be dense. Please let me know where I am messing up.

    Went to Mac > Mobile Me and forced CPU > Mobile Me.

    Checked Mobile Me and the colors were correct (yay)

    Activated Mobile Me. Forced a Sync to phone. Colors not correct.

    yup have to turn on each in turn, and then wait for it to sync up.

    30 mins have passed. Still wrong color. Will give it a few hours. Maybe my phone is lazy. I did have a big day and is a bit yellow :D

    But what about for those of us with a PC using Outlook who also have the wrong colors...?

    How about Subscribed Calanders?

    I tried searching for this with no luck; does anyone know if MobileMe can also push your subscribed calenders?

    For example, all of my Home and Work events sync up between my Mac at home, MobileMe online and my iPhone 3G, but my subscribed Movie Releases and DVD Releases (as well as U.S. Holidays) on my Mac at home won't show in MobileMe online and now that my iPhone is set to receive push data from MobileMe, it no longer shows the Movie and DVD releases or the Holidays on the iPhone now.

    Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    So much better.

    I agree with the poster in the other thread. Silly spot to put this.

    Well I get the subscribed calendars to MobileMe but they do not go down to the iphone. It seems everyone is in the same boat on this. I just hope Apple bring out 2.1 soon which addresses all the issues people have been seeing.

    I don't meet the prerequisites. I'd need some torn jeans, a tight fluorescent t-shirt, and a venti frappacino first... :p
