    Did you try to reset the Sync history in iSync/settings on your Mac?

    thanks, a strange place to look for syncing adresbook through itunes though.

    All the devices that were mentioned were bluetooth diveces (old nokia phones that I don't use anymore)

     

    is this a recurring excercise?

    Only on a Mac, if you're running Windows, you can find this option right in the Device pane of your iTunes Preferences.

    I had to do this once in 4 years, so I would not call it recurring

    hi,

     

    Since I reset Isync, my Iphone syncronises with Itunes correctly but as soon as I change anything in adresbook I have to reset Isync again. During syncroniation my Iphone doesnot pick up any new adresses.

    I had to reset Isyncthis 6 times allready in 3 weeks.

     

    Is there anyting wrong here?

    Did you try to replace the contact info on the phone with the one one the Mac? You can find this option in the Advanced section of the Info pane with your phone connected to iTunes.

    Still my problem returns regularly.

    I still have to reset Isync everytime I change or add an adress in adresbook.

    Also Adresbook copies email adresses (Dutch IRS ones...) and shows them all 7 or 8 containing som email adresses (all the same ones thats a relief?)

     

     

    Another problem with my Iphone

    I can use all features exept sending mail.

     

    My apple account is still .mac.com but is not accessible for some years now.

    Entering Itunes and Itunes store is through .mac.com account but I cannot retreve mail from that account (of course) but sending mail through my dutch KPN mail doesnot wordk whatever smtp server or password I enter, the message is allways that I cant send mail though I have copied the values from my Imac which works fine sending and receiving mail (entourage, mail also doesnot work)

    Maybe you should post this as well in the MobileMe on iPhone and iPod Touch forum.

    I don't use mac.com, but I'm sure somebody in that forum can help to solve your mail account problem.

    Thank you for all your replies.

     

    I found out that Entourage also had some sycronisation services, one of them was ticked.

    This gave all the problems, Now I unticked the checkbox. No problems anymore!!!

     

     

    Thanks
