    I can sync everything BUT Bookmarks as well. I have searched these discussions and have yet to find the answer.

    I tried a phone reset with no luck. I upgraded to Safari 3 and no luck.

    I Get = "iTunes could not sysnc bookmarks because the iPhone was disconneted"

    Any Ideas Welcome

    for me it goes thru the motions and i don't get any error messages, the bookmarks just don't get synced.

    i did connect my iphone to my laptop (ibook) and it did sync those bookmarks, so there must be something going on with my tower...i'm going to try to restore isync (for the heck of it) and see what happens.)

    I have exactly the same problem.
    iTunes goes through all the motions, under the iPhone -> Info tab, "Sync Safari Bookmarks" is checked & I've also tried checking the Advanced option "Replace information on this iPhone" ... every time exactly the same result.

    Non of my Safari bookmarks are syncing to the iPhone. I've tried deleting (manually) all the Safari bookmarks on the iPhone & also deleting all the Safari Bookmarks on my Mac (Book Pro with iTunes 7.3.2 and iPhone 1.0.1).

    After adding a single bookmark to Safari on the Mac again syncing through iTunes - still no luck. No bookmarks appear on my iPhone (even through all the other syncing options / calendars / contacts etc. sync fine).

    Perhaps it's a corrupt cache somewhere on the Mac? I don't know
    Any thoughts?

    Is the following related to this subject?
    I use a bookmark "quicken.intuit.com". When I access it thru Safari, it causes Safari to crash. It happens only with this bookmark, but also happens if I put it in the address line. It only started doing this after it had been running okay for something like ten months.
    If this is not the proper topic, can you suggest an appropriate topic?

    I'm having the same problem. Running a Core2 Duo iMac w/10.4.10 and all the latest updates (also tried Safari 2 and 3). I have my Safari bookmarks syncing successfully across multiple Macs (the iMac, a MacBook and Mac Mini) via .Mac: all with no problems. Address book and Calendar sync fine both directions.

    The initial sync when I set up my iPhone brought my Safari bookmarks over to the iPhone. BUT, after that, any updates on my Mac, or on the iPhone won't appear on the other. Tried turning off "Sync Safari Bookmarks" in iTunes and back on. Tried "Replace info on this iPhone" with Bookmarks checked. Didn't work. No error message...it just didn't update/remove my iPhone bookmarks.

    Would love to see this one fixed. Makes browsing on the iPhone tough w/out my bookmarks. I have a lot of them, and it's easier to select one than enter a long URL by hand.
