About duplicate contacts and calendars on iPhone 3.0
Authored by: Nightlife on Jun 18, '09 09:59:47AM

For contacts, Sven's tip worked for me, and is a little easier:

Turn off MobileMe Contacts Sync on the iPhone and remove all contacts from the phone when it asks
On your Mac, create a dummy group, add one dummy entry
Turn on "Sync Selected Contacts," and only pick the dummy group
Sync your iPhone. When you're done, you should only have one group, and one contact.
Turn off Contacts syncing in iTunes.
Re-activate MobileMe syncing on your iPhone, and pick "Merge" when it asks what you want to do with the contacts on MobileMe. Let it sync over the air and add back all of your contacts.
Now delete your dummy group and contact on your Mac.
Let your iPhone sync over the air, and viola, back to normal. PHEW!
