I am so consufed about syncing today. Can someone please explain it (with no fluff) to me again?  The fluff in the help sestion does not answer my question - or I am beyond frustrated after entering and re-entering in lost info all day.

 

Does sync actually do what it should - logically?

 

Make my Iphone AND my mac match?

 

Explination:

1 contact in my phone

1 contact on my mac

= When synced - 2 contacts on my phone AND mac?

 

When info is put into my mac - when synced does it update my phone?

When info is put into my iphone- when synced does it update my mac?

 

oh do I miss steve.....

 

And then I get an error trying to post this message - am I jinxed or what?
