This is the only issue I've had since the iCloud move - Mobile Me never had this issue.

 

Basically, the bookmarks never sync right between my two macs and my iPhone. Today I even deleted all my bookmarks and turned off syncing on my iPhone and then reenabled it. Nothing is syncing. I tried that twice. Between the two macs, every once in a great while, ONE or so of the bookmarks I make on one will meander over to the other, but it's a crap shoot. No problem with calendars (thank goodness) or anything else - just this minor, yet irritating issue.

 

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.


Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.2), i7, 8GB, 750GB

    Steven...

     

     

    Try "resetting" both Macs and the iPhone.

     

     

    On the Macs open System Preferences > iCloud. Deselect the box next to Bookmarks then reselect it then restart the Macs.

     

    On the iPhone tap Settings > iCloud. Switch Bookmarks off then back on then reset the iPhone.

     

    Hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button and the Home button down at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

     

     

     

    FYI... don't delete your Bookmarks. That may make things worse.

    I'm wary of when I'll inevitably have to 'merge' data between the two Macs and the iCloud service as Mobile Me was reknowned for duplicating things. I guess I'll just export them to be safe, like usual. I'll let you know how it goes.

    I thought I had gotten everything worked out, but then THIS happened.

     

    I'm not sure why they have no problems syncing everything else, but Bookmarks are a huge problem.
