About duplicate contacts and calendars on iPhone 3.0
Authored by: T_Slothrop on Jun 24, '09 07:44:22AM
Actually, there is a really simple way to fix this, and it was the original hint that made me realize this. In that hint, robg says: "After all that, I've actually enabled iTunes sync again -- but only for those subscribed calendars that MobileMe sync isn't able to handle. I believe this was the intent of the change in 3.0, and it's a good one ... it just caught me off guard at first, due to my redundant settings." The solution is to simply go to the "Info" pane in iTunes for your iPhone and:
  1. In the "Calendars" section, have iTunes only sync "Selected Calendars", and only select those that will not be synced via MobileMe (e.g., subscribed calendars). If All are to be synced via MobileMe, uncheck "Sync iCal Calendars"
  2. In the "Advanced" section, select "Calendars" below "Replace information on this iPhone"
  3. Click on "Apply" and the iPhone will resync
At this point, at least for me, all of the duplicates were removed.

I've had this problem ever since I had to turn in my 2nd Iphone for sound problems. When I synched- I got 3 sets of duplicate contacts: 1 on the PC, one on Mobile Me, one on "All Groups". Pain in the rear. I searched and searched and this was exactly what i needed. This works perfectly.
