10.6: Sync contacts to Macs, PCs, iPhones, and BlackBerries
Authored by: brucio on May 17, '10 11:04:18AM

I'd be curious to know if running Address Book Server on OS 10.6 Server would avoid sync problems on compatible systems.

I may try this, mostly because I have yet to find a satisfactory method to keep my Mac and phones synced up. Now Contact Server worked for my Macs, back in the day. Don't get me started on MobileMe- it's very frustrating when you have to depend on email support to fix your contact database.

Regarding Snow Leopard Server's Address Book Server - I had hoped this would work too. Unfortunately, the iPhone does not have the ability to link to an Address Book Server yet. There are speculations on the Apple message boards about this being in iPhone OS 4, but no official word.

Address Book Server is relatively easy to set up by the way. I wanted to use it as a central address book for my wife's small company.

There is a program at addressbookserver.com that is supposed to work too, but I haven't tried it.
