Contact Sync works...somewhat

Post by Taboga » Sat Oct 16, 2010 2:45 am

Hi, my contacts synced from my iphone to Thunderbird, but the names and email do not show up in the addressbook unless you click on the phone number then the pop up box shows their name and email. They are blank on the main page though (except for phone number)

ALSO! I am not able to sync Lightning with my iphone calendar. When I am looking at the sync window, it shows my iphone and contacts, but it does not show a calendar. When I set this up, I set it up to sync contacts and calendar in Thunderbird.

Not sure for the email field. Did you check which field the email is appearing in when opening a contact in TB ?
For names, check in the Address Book menu View>Show Names As and pick something else than "Display Name". You should see names in the main view.

What do you mean by "main page" ?

By now BirdieSync for iPhone doesn't support event and task synchronization because technologies provided by Apple have serious drawbacks regarding the management of recurring events...
