    I am not sure what is going on, but the number of sync conflicts I get per day is increasing greatly. I find my self resolving at least 1 conflict per day (on records that are almost always the same)

    To top it off, I have made changes to this one addressbook entry to correct the name like 50 times now. It randomly keeps coming back with the incorrect spelling.

    If that wasn't annoyed enough, now I am getting errors saying that I need to reset my sync data.

    Any ideas on what the problem could be ? I have 3 machines I sync up with, 2 very common 1 very rare.

    If I set something to "replace items on computer" is that for the first time, or will it do that everytime ?

    Do this....

    Turn off Mobile Me. Make the changes on a computer. Then select the "Replace on iPhone" option for Address book. Then on the other computer you sync to, delete all entries then sync. The data on the phone will then be put on the computer. Then remove the data from Mobile Me then turn it back on.
