Sync Fields Missing

Post by jclark » Tue Dec 28, 2010 10:03 pm

I'm syncing between Thunderbird 3.1.7 and an iPhone. I'm using Birdiesync 2.1.0.1 and trying to bring my contacts from Firefox to the phone.

Everything seems to by syncing fine except a couple of fields:

State/Province & ZIP/Postal Code are not transferring. The State and ZIP fields on my iPhone are blank.

Any suggestions?

Hello John,

I'll do some tests again to check if these fields are properly synchronized. I'll keep you informed.

I created a contact in Thunderbird with the fields you mentioned and synchronized it but could not reproduce the problem.
Would you have a precise scenario that I could reproduce ?
Could it be related to the particular content of your State and ZIP fields ?
Which country did you set in your contact ? (for instance, the State field is not displayed with France)

I created all of my contacts in Thunderbird and have synced them to the iPhone.

Most of my contacts have the country set for USA or United States of America.

After further investigation, I went into the contacts on iPhone and changed the country to United States. All the missing information magically appeared. Apparently the contacts in Thunderbird need to be listed as United States NOT USA or United States of America.
