I am using a Macbook Pro with 10.7.5 to sync my iPhone4S running IOS5.


My primary calendar is on an exchange server, for compatiblity with the less fortunate Windows users in my company.  I have Mac Outlook 2011 and iCal 5.0.3, and they are both fully online with the Exchange server and very happy about the state of the calendar.  My iPhone is a competely different matter.  I noticed that some of the calendar entries weren't on the phone, when I missed a meeting, and so I used the "During the next sync only, iTunes will replace the calendar stuff on the phone with info from this computer" checkbox.


The result is that the calendar on my iPhone is completely blank.


I've never made entries on the iPhone, I only use it to carry around a copy of the iCal calendar.  Now I have a full iCal calendar, and an empty iPhone.  I've deleted the calendar in iCal, and rebuilt it.  I've deleted the calendar on the iPhone, and resync'ed; no calendar.  I've tried the replace checkbox a couple of times.


What is wrong?  How can I fix it?  How can an iCal calendar not be syncable to an iPhone? No fancy iCloud stuff, I have a USB cable running between the Macbook and iPhone. This is an all-Apple system here, I always tell the poor unfortunate µSoft users that they wouldn't have their problems if they had a Mac.  Now I have Apple <=> Apple incompatibility?? 



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
