    Guys, need your help. I can't sync anything with mobile me. I just signed up with mobileme last night. When I connected my mac via itunes, there was this message under the "info" tab that my calendar will be updated over the air via mobileme. I went to system preferences and clicked the mobileme tab.

    Under the sync option, I tried ticking the box "Synchronize with Mobileme" but i couldn't. I can't access the whole sync area. However, based on the mobileme "account" tab, i was signed in.

    As for my iphone, I was set to "push" manually but all the other settings are set to either fetch or push.

    What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    First on your iPhone, go to Settings - Mail, Contacts, Calendar select your mobileme account and you can just select OFF if you want iTunes to sync using your mac and not thru mobileme. But its better to use mobileme. Refer to bacchus' post.

    For mobileme push to work on your iphone follow number 7.
