iPhone sync with empty email field

Post by Gudul » Sat Oct 16, 2010 8:46 am

Hi,

While syncing an iPhone 4 to Thunderbird 3.1.4 (+MoreFunctionForAddrewssBook 0.06.0.2) as a new fresh transfer from the iPhone to TB, the email field in TB is empty, but OK in the iPhone.
In addition it looks like the category field is not present in the iPhone because all my contacts arrive int he default AB and not in the AB corresponding to the category field value (checked option in the Contact Group tab of PC).
Any idea ?

PC: Win 7
BS: 2.1.01
iPhone 4 with iPhone OS 4.1

Hello Gudul,

I made some tests but could not reproduce the problem. If I create a contact on the iPhone with a Home email or a work Email, it is properly synchronized in Thunderbird address book. Do ou have this problem with all your contacts ? Could you confirm that the email category is Home or Work and not Other or another customized label ?

There is no "Category" field on the iPhone but you can classify your contacts in Groups. Are you saying that you have problems synchronizing your iPhone contacts located in different groups ?

Thanks.

Hello Franky,

Again, I couldn't reproduce the problem and had no problem synchronizing.
Do you have this problem with all your contacts ? Could you confirm that the email category is Home or Work and not Other or another customized label ?
If you create a new contact on the iPhone with a Home email address, is this email address missing in Thunderbird when you look at the details of the contact ?
Thanks.
Birdy
