So I wake up this morning to find I’ve missed a few calls, when I go to see who I missed a call from It displays not the name but the number as do all of my call history, so I check my contacts, and they are still there but all the phone numbers have been striped from the contacts.
Has the above situation happened to you as well? well good thing it was a easy fix simply disable push for your contacts by going to:
Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars
click on .Mac or MobileMe at the top of the screen and turn off Push for contacts, you can leave the rest on, now sync your phone with your computer. Then go ahead and turn it back on, you’ll get a notification that the contacts on your phone will be replaced by MobileMe just accept it and your phone should be good as new,
Please let me know if you found any problems with this.
Looks like theres a new update out for MobileMe this update includes general system fixes that enhance your Mac for MobileMe. so far upgrade process from .Mac to MobileMe has been rough at best but this update was applied smoothly to my mac.
This update is now available through the Software Update Utility on your mac. If for some reason you are not seeing it try signing out and back in to .Mac via your system preferences.
The notes are vague at best but let us know how the update goes for you =)
You heard right, while its not officially launched you can get your hands on the file early on (I’m downloading it now) at this link once you got your hands on this little guy fire up the Latest version of iTunes (7.7) and Option + Click the Check for update link, select the file you just downloaded and there you go. Rocking the latest software before everyone else =)
please not the following from apple before trying this out:
Normally if you choose to update, the iPhone or iPod touch software is updated but your settings and media are not affected. If your device currently has a software version prior to 2.0 (1.x) and you are updating to software version 2.0 or later, all data on your device will be erased in order to perform install the new software. In this case, iTunes will offer to create a one-time media backup of your device depending on what content is on your device and what content is stored in the iTunes Library you are connected to. You should ensure that you have enough free space on your Mac or PC to accommodate a backup that matches the capacity of your iPhone or iPod touch (4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB, or 32 GB) if you proceed with the this backup.
I headed over to mac.com today and was automatically redirected to me.com, thats right MobileMe is up and ready for use. My first impression is very High I live the new Web based mail app, the only area I was disapointed was with the calanders app Firefox kept finding a rogue script that it would offer to stop, if I let it go Firefox would crash and burn, but this is the first day live there are bound to be a few bugs. cant wait for friday when I can updade my iPhone to 2.0 to see live updateing of my Contacts, Calendars and Mail.
If you’ve attempted accessing mac.com you’ll be presented with the following:
Looks like Apple has started the process of upgrading there servers for the new features of MobileMe, keep en eye here for further updates I’ll post any changes I see until services are back up and running.
