When Address Book and MobileMe Fail to Sync a Record

If you find that there’s an address book card out there that isn’t syncing with MobileMe, your iPhone, or another Mac… check to see if there is an ampersand in the failing record anywhere.  Apparently once a card hits MobileMe, it doesn’t like the ampersand in the vcard and chokes on it.  If MobileMe chokes on it, all of your devices will be unable to find the new card.

Just another tip from yours truly.

I’m in New Orleans this week, working project stuff for the day job.  Lots of fun here.  More later.

  1. Hm, that sounds… robust. Did you file a bug or something? This will surely hit more people.

    Thankfully Scheduleworld seems to work fine 🙂
