About duplicate contacts and calendars on iPhone 3.0

Oh cool, can we have our iCal-subscribed calendars show up on our phone now? Been waiting for that since the beginning... must try when I get home. :)

I had the same problem but instead of deleting the mobile me account I created a dummy entry in address book which I put in a dummy group. That allows you to sync only that group to your phone and afterwards you simply delete the contact and the group on the phone. Note that you can't delete contact groups with the default contacts app on the iPhone but I've got the "Groups" app which can.

Yeah, the problem exists with Google Contacts too. It seems to be that you can't sync to your Mac and some other service without selecting some group from the Mac. I created a 'dummy' group with no records and then selected that to sync. Next sync I'm back to my original set of contacts, no duplicates.

There should be a better way though.

have you worked out a better way for google contacts? I only seem to have the duplicate issue with contacts not calendar entries for some reason

Yes, you can either enable that in iTunes as described, or email yourself links to the calendars (they must begin with webcal://). Click on them in the iphone mail app and you'll be able to subcribe to them on the phone.
