Why aren't my iCal subscribed calendars syncing with iPhone?

    Hi all,

    I use iCal together with MobileMe and I have noticed that none of my subscribed calendars sync with MobileMe/iPhone.

    I installed Delicious Library a couple of weeks ago (which places a subscribed calendar in iCal) and that syncs but not my others, such as "Birthdays" (through AddressBook) or my RememberTheMilk ones.

    DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS!!!!

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Many thanks!

    The basic answer is because they don't. Apple provide this very helpful (not) KB article. A quick Google search for "Subscribed Calendars iPhone" will give you a few potential solutions (and a search of these forums would have revealed existing threads on this)...

    Thanks for your reply. I still do not understand why one calendar added by Delicious Library syncs and not the others. They are the same.

    Thanks again.

    I get around this limitation by having the subscribed calendar sync with my google calendar which then syncs to my mac & iphone. So far it works great for TripIt, ReQall, etc. feeds.
