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?

    ok - so why is it not doing that then after sync?

     

    Example:

    -Item put in my Ical on my phone does not appear on my Ical on mac

    -Phonenumbers put in exsisting contacts on my phone do not appear on mac

    -Addresses updated on contacts on mac do not appear on phone

    -Group contacts do not match (4 groups on my phone and 7 on my mac)

     

    etc etc

     

    I must have a setting horribly wrong.

     

    I thought it did this because that's why I was so overjoyed after ditching my bberry years ago. 

     

    Note: since starting to use icoud this is when the insanity happened.  I have since stopped icloud backup on my phone  and do it manually insetad.

    You have selected to sync with your computer?

     

    Open itunes, connect iphone, select sync contacts and calendars with your computer
