    When I add a calendar event on the iPad for say 09:00AM it will sync with Mobile Me and show up on my iPhone as 11:00AM. Anyone have any suggestions? PS both devices are set to Auto on time with the network.

    I think you have a wrong timezone configured. Either on your Mac or iPhone.

    This sounds like you have TimeZone support switched on perhaps on your iPhone and then your computer is on a different one.

    TimeZone support is meant to automatically change meetings to the timezone you want so you don't have to keep working out the time difference say from east to west coast.

    To check on the iPhone go to Settings, Mail,Contacts Calendars and then scroll down to see Time Zone Support. This should tell you were your iPhone is currently set to.

    This does sound like a time zone issue because it is exactly two hours off, but the iPad does have a time problem in my experience. I can sync with my iMac and yet the time will still be a minute or two off. It's especially noticeable when I have my iPhone and iPad on the desk with my iMac (look at that, my own little iWorld) and a remind goes off. It goes off at the exact same moment on both the iMac and iPhone and then a minute or so later on the iPad.

    I've read other threads about this issue - had anyone found a fix?

    I had the same issue and it was a Time Zone issue on MobileMe. When I signed up for MobileMe, it defaulted to Cupertino, CA. Imagine that. :rolleyes:

    On Mobile Me I have the time zone set to Chicago which is correct. On the iPhone and iPad, I cannot see where to set time zone. It just sets time auto. Anyone know how to get the a time zone setting on the iPhone and or iPad?

    That Time Zone adjustment did the trick.
    Thanks all.
