I have just started with a MobileMe trial as I was tired of keeping my iPhone, iPad and MacBook synced manually. However I am wondering whether I have all settings correct as for example recently I added a contact on my iPad and it never synced to the Mac or phone. Also at one point all entries were duplicated on the Ipad (I think this was because I had both MobileMe sync and Computer Sync on).
What settings do you recommend on the Mac as well as Pad/Phone side? And do I need to have Push sync activated on the mobile devices or will it also work with hourly sync? I’d prefer the latter to preserve battery and I don’t need really instant syncing. Also, any advice on backup – I have heard of cases where all of a sudden the phone address book was empty due to a sync error and then that got synced to all other devices so that all data was lost – not sure this is a rumor, but how to protect oneself from such event best? (I am using Timemachine already)
Have you done a tutorial on MobileMe (I could not find one), maybe this would be a good idea to do one.
