Customer Question
I'm trying to synch...

I'm trying to synch (merge?) my iPhone with my desktop for contacts and calendars. If I enter a new contact or calendar event on my desktop, it does appear on my iPhone. But not in the reverse directions Help

Technician's Assistant: What version of iTunes are you using to sync your iPhone?

How do I know?

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. When did you last reboot?

If reboot means shutting off and then restarting, it was a few weeks ago on the iPone, and yesterday on the desktop.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Not for now, thanks.
