    This is a pretty serious problem for me, being as iCal has become an integral part of my (admittedly) small business.

    It's not an issue with current events, but as I go back in time appointments are just gone from my iPhone. The further back in time, the more they are missing. I'll spare you the details about why I need past appointments to show up, but it's mission critical.

    All this stuff shows up fine on my Macs iCal, it's just on the phone that things are disappearing.

    Any thoughts?

    There is a setting on the iPhone that specifies how far back past events will stay synced on the phone.

    Really? Where's that located? I'm not seeing it under settings.

    And even so, why would that cause older appointments to be deleted?

    In iTunes select your device "iPhone", and then the "Info" tab.

    Second section down you'll see the option to sync your iCal data. One checkbox is to determine how many days back to sync. Most people don't need to know when their rent was due the month before, etc. You just need to set it to a period of 365 days or so, whatever you need.
